Weekly Photo Challenge: Half & Half

My kids are 2 halves of the same coin. They know how to have fun and make even sachets of ketchup amusing.

And all this laughter after a long wait in an airport and visits to 2 very busy Nigerian cities. Not to mention almost 5 hours combined they had to wait in a car with the engine running while I tried to sort out the mess that was my banking. I love them more than anything.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Doors of Summer

I love that we are getting very hot days in Scotland this week – up to 27 degrees celsius (roughly 80 deg Fahrenheit). You will notice that my door entry is full of colour as a result. I hope you are having a hot, glorious summer too! Enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Colours of the Rainbow


I cannot simply appear at my final destination

It’s a journey that needs focussed determination

I see possibilities dressed in the colours of the rainbow

When I reach a “viewing point“, you will be the first to know

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature

In Scotland, we have to contend with the forces of nature. The forces are schizophrenic at times, with the scrotching heat and snow falling within hours of each other. The difference is stark but we find a way to enjoy both forces: skiing, trips to the beach.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

At the last minute, I decided to participate in the photo challenge this week. It’s a great one – motion. Here my entry:


I love the fire works on the cake presented at a birthday party this weekend. The kids were so excited that we had a couple of goes with the fireworks candles. The little boy turning 6 even got to make a wish.

Other great entries:

Lucid Gypsy – Motion

I hope everyone had a great weekend too!
