where we been and where we going





We've been home. ('Home' being the island I grew up on. I still call it 'home' even though it's not any more.)There was boats and sea and fishing and eating fishes and walking in the woods and lots of little girls in a bath and catching up with friends and making our brains ache trying to think of a way that we could live there and still do what we do.   
Tomorrow we are going to London. Where maybe we want home to be. It's all very confusing. There will be trains and cafes and Italian food and my first ever hen party and a house with a garden and catching up with friends.  
There probably won't be much blogging. But you're used to that by now.  
That whole 'weekly' thing didn't work out so well, huh?  In brief we are : busy, tired, barely seeing each other, photographing weddings (AMAZING weddings), travelling, exhausted.  The babies are: loud, rolling, trying to crawl (A), enjoying teeth (E), stealing (and eating) post it notes, throwing food, scowling.

  2. I expect to want to move to the island permanently when we visit in a few weeks. That always happens to me - I visit somewhere and want to move there for life. Beautiful photos of beautiful people and sprogs - thanks x

  3. Ah, the beautiful Scottish islands. A few friends of mine are moving to Colonsay later this summer and part of me is sooo jealous - what an amazing place for their children to grow up!

  11. Those first two photos KILL me.

    And home that isn't home but still is. Home. Some of us are used to using that term somewhat promiscuously now. But still really meaning it wherever it applies.
