Christmas 2016

Ahh the holidays. The break over Christmas was so desperately needed.  They were quiet and gentle and just what we craved after the craziness of 2016. We’d had the builders in for six solid months, the work infiltrated every single room and it left us all feeling slightly misplaced (and totally shattered). Finally things seem to be coming together and now the mammoth task of decorating begins. But before that, two weeks of hibernating: of walks, watching movies at 3pm in our pjs, lazy suppers of leftovers, board games and naps. Total BLISS.


After the New Year celebrations had passed I cleared over 12’000 photos from my iPhone and camera. It seems that although I’ve felt silent for a lot of the year I can not stop taking pictures. I think I will start sharing them on here again, in the hope that words may follow. I felt inspired by Vanessa’s post (I’ve missed her blog) and quietly vowed that I will reclaim this space for myself and share what I would like to share and not just what I feel I should. We will see…but for now just a few of many photos taken to remind us of those precious weeks of calm:












Wishing you a peaceful, happy and healthy 2017.

Bye for now. Em xx
