Go places. Do things.

I have a great job, I really do.

But one of the things about a job like mine is that there’s never peace. Or space. Pretty much 24/7, there’s someone with a question, a problem, or something that I could be doing.

So this Easter has been a chance to step away. To be with the most important people in my life, and – frankly – nobody else. To ignore emails and Facebook and Twitter and to seek out space and peace, and to get our knees as dirty as we possibly can. 

I hope you’re having a wonderful break, too.

(all these photos are snaps taken on my much loved Nokia Lumia 1020, which I was given to try out this year. If you want a decent camera on a phone, I can’t recommend it highly enough)

    So, who drew the short shoe cleaning straw…? Looks truly gorgeous. Glad you enjoyed. The quality on that final sunset shot is amazing.

      It’s a fabulous phone, isn’t it? I find myself taking the big camera out far less since I got it.

    Damn right! Time spent doing stuff with my kids totally refreshes me these days, despite the fact that it’s far from lying on a beach reading a book. I think we’re lucky that they’re such a good age at the moment. Let’s make the most of them!

    Absolutely gorgeous photos. I think you should be on the photography panel at Blog Camp next year! Know the feeling re. peace – switching things off and walking outside to do fun stuff is my favourite thing of the holidays.
