Something for the weekend

So no sooner was I feeling better then BAM! I’m hit with a head cold. Ah, the joys of toddlers and their germs. This auntie has had to keep her head down while she works on her new course (which I am LOVING and so proud of) but that’s left no extra time for blogging (hence the silence — thank you to those of you who’ve reached out to make sure i was okay!) There was a window of health on Tuesday so I popped into town to have lunch with a friend who was visiting from the States — we took a few portraits of each other, much to the amusement of the Big Issue seller behind us. I’ll share the portraits next week — she’s a hottie.
