Well we have just returned from a week away on the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca. No technology, no surfing the web, just fun in the sun and a little bit of reading with some restful needle time. Lovely. If you read this blog often, you know that I am a big fan of the British staycation. I think you can go the length and breath of these isles and find a different landscape, a unique experience and not even get on a plane.

But there is something about being outside of your culture, listening to the ‘different music’ of a language not of your own, which is so refreshing. Each year I am drawn to colour, the flowers, the markets and the sky.

Look at that colour!

I actually took fewer photos this year, wanting perhaps to be in the moment rather than recording it. Just a little bit of rest, great memories and a smidgeon of inspiration.
