Hello , wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.
Once again I have been missing in action but this was a conscious decision on my part , needing some R&R after an extremely hectic Christmas , both at work and at home.
Fortunately , I had some wonderful books to loose myself in.
I shouted myself this one by Andre Leon Talley (an American fashion journalist) absolutely fascinating, especially his tales of his early years in the fashion world.
A bit of armchair travel , gifts from my sons and John . Who knows when I will visit these places again but I am happy to loose myself in my books for now.
Christmas day was pleasantly mild and we enjoyed lunch in the garden . My sister Lyn and our youngest son Callum joined us for lunch. Callum arrived back home from Melbourne on December 9th. to attend a wedding and stayed until last Sunday . He is also a runner and competed in three carnivals while here in Tasmania. We last saw him in March in Melbourne on our way to Cuba, it was good to catch up .
Little Harry and his Mum and Dad joined us later in the afternoon. Harry is quite the train buff and loved this train set given to him by his Uncle Callum.
Harry and I enjoying a swing in the park near our home , nothing like a two year old to bring out that inner child in you.
Just before Christmas our washing machine packed it in , so on the first opportunity we headed out to find a replacement. Job done , we headed for the old rail yards for a couple of outfit photos. The wind played nicely showing the volume in my recycled Alistar Trung skirt , it is made from the most wonderful fabric , according to the label from Japan , that reminds me of parachute fabric. I teamed the skirt with an old favourite white Nicola Waite shirt.
Now for my new intentions ( not resolutions , gave up on them so long ago) , these relate to the blog and a commitment to get back to blogging on a regular basis , taking time to organise my posts properly so they are less haphazard . Any suggestions for topics that would be of interest to you would be most welcome .
Thinking of all my friends in the UK as they enter lock down .
Thank you to my followers I so treasure our connections .
