Welcome to 2014!

Well, that was a nice break, and wow, did I need it?! I crashed out a couple of weeks earlier than planned, pretty much putting down the pen half-way through December. I was done and dusted, I needed a rest. And rest I did, it’s been the most incredible couple of weeks…

We did this…

Making a point to leave the house, we saw the sun set on 2013…

We enjoyed the quiet times…

Mostly, we just enjoyed being together. We put our feet up, enjoyed the scenery (and the cider) and loved the summer break.

I hope you’ve had an equally wonderful time, and I’d love to hear about it. One of the things I hope for for TBYL this year is to hear more from you guys – I want to know more about you, about what you’re doing, about what you’ve seen, heard, read and written.

Please, feel free to share your summer days…
