The final half-term of the school year is knocking on the door,and we're off and away for a large portion of it. I'll be back here in early June.
In the hour between getting home from Sports Day (more like Sports Most of the School Day in reality)and leaving again to collect The Boy Child,I downloaded my photos and immediately printed off a number of favourites.

... I'm looking forward to a few days away.... Sunshine and warmer temperatures mean it's time to eat al fresco, with a side order of Pimm's.... Reading the Neapolitan novels by Elena Ferrante on the Kindle.... Still walking around the park each day. A habit that's hard to break....
