no better way to launch back in than with a bit of taking stockthe pictures are some i took for elliot's school a while back. it seems i haven't picked up my camera since we returned from melbourne. my apologies for the recent radio silence in these parts (and thanks to those of you who let me know my blog was down) - an extended blogger enforced break and a matter of finding the time to sit down and work out how to fix it. it's good to be back.


  1. Great list and warm photos as always Rachel. Do you know it is 20 years since I left school fact I have a invitation to our 20 reunion stuck to my fridge, but I am absolutely petrified about going. I wonder if I should face those school yard fears or leave them in the past and ditch the reunion? x

  2. Lovely photos and a great list of things to be doing, thinking and dreaming.

  3. Micheal was trying to organise a DDHS reunion at the races but I am not sure if it is going ahead as I have not seen anything else about it on FB. Will let you know if it is happening. As for an Au pair that would be amazing and you would be a better boss than the people I had in the UK!! Great to hear you sounding so positive x

  4. I love this and this list reminds me how much I love reading blogs. Hope all is well and hopefully you won't mind if I make a list like this of my own. Your photos are beautiful as always. Cheers!

  5. i just did this list too. a nice way to sink teeth back into a blog and i love walking away from these lists feeling accomplished in all i am doing (albeit separate from the traditional 'lists' found around these parts) i loved women who run with the wolves, read it as a teen, may need to dig my copy back out. xx

  6. I love your list. I'm "considering" and "marvelling" the exact same things as you. My reunion is in 6 weeks time too - unbelievable that 20 years could have past so quickly isn't it? Glad to see you back x


Your comments make my day! Thanks for stopping by.
