Xmas is still 5 weeks away, but I haven’t done anything about getting parcels ready to send to family in the UK ………… perhaps that needs to go to the top of the list!!

The painter finished last night at 7pm after 7 days painting. Took much longer than we expected but he has done a fantastic job, and we didn’t realise how much pre-painting preparation needed to be done because of damage by aftershocks. We are delighted with the result – spent most of today getting the two rooms back in order but it is all looking good 🙂

This is taken with my 50mm lens reversed – backblipped for yesterday when I used the same technique.
