I hope you all had an amazing Christmas this week. Isn’t it crazy how much we gear up for one day & then it’s over in an instant? Now it’s time for New Years! New goals, plans & adventures.
I’m on holiday for a few weeks so am making the most of the absolutely amazing summer we are having. My first adventure was a kayak to Haulashore island – photos above were taken on my iPhone.
Do you have anything fun planned for this festive season?

Good morning! This week I set up my art exhibition ‘of wildflowers & wings’ I’m always so nervous having my art on view like this! But it feels so good to push through arty barriers.
We are having beautiful summery weather and I went for my first swim of the season. Golden sands and crystal clear blue water – Nelson summers are the absolute best. I cannot wait for the outdoor movies to start!
How is your Christmas shopping going? I haven’t even started. Only 6 sleeps to gooo.
