Time Well Spent

This is a slightly different post for me. I don’t usually share these types of photos but I wanted to show you what I’ve been up to lately. As most of you know, I’ve been away for two weeks. I spent the first week in Lorne (which I’ve mentioned previously) and the second in Melbourne. It was full of very long days but was really a great time. The conference and our time in Melbourne were both very successful. On top of that, I got to spend two weeks with a dear friend, rediscovering the beautiful city of Melbourne and her surrounds. I thought I would share with you some of the photos from the trip – all of these were taken on my iPhone6.

I’m not going to make it to a February post for Cardinal’s Changing Seasons challenge since I was away for most of February, so I thought the next best thing might be to show you where I spent a lot of this month.

First up, the photos from Lorne:

 

And now, some pics from Melbourne:

 

This trip was amazing. We worked hard, but we also played hard. It made me realise that I might want to live my “usual” life a little differently. I haven’t quite figured out how yet, but I am going to enjoy myself on the way.

Cheers to you and cheers to us – thank you for joining me on this path, I appreciate each of you more than you know, and I can’t wait to see where we all go next.

            Oh wow, she works there? I think I’ve been missing the back story…so…he thinks…if you are in Cambridge, the idea of a European Photo Rehab dinner may not seem quite so insanely difficult to organise?
