The Sunday R&R

Good Sunday Morning to you!  Firstly a little piece of news that I didn’t get to share last Sunday, we won Highly Commended in the Best International Blog category of the Blog Awards.  It is such an honour to win this for the second year running and thank you to each and every one of you that voted.

Today is an official Play Day, so I am out of the office all day.  If you are interested a play day isn’t the same as a day off, this is a day of play, or doing all those things that make me smile, having adventure, laughter and generally oodles of fun.

So grant yourself a play day and would love to hear what you get up to.

But for now I will leave you with the Sunday R&R…

We started the week by visiting the French countryside for a rustic wedding photographed by Susie Lawrence – see full wedding here
