new years resolutions

so for 2016 i have lots of the same old intentions which i know by mid january will soon fade away.  the kids are growing up and life is speeding past – i managed to photograph a couple of weddings, impending births and sadly witness the loss of a friend who was far too young to die – these important events in one’s life made me realise that  what is really important is your health, family and happiness.  so here are a few things that i will be bearing in mind….

generosity of thought

kindness of heart

patience of mind

selflessness in spirit

a little phrase that really resonates    – friendship isn’t about who you have known the longest – it’s about those who came and never left your side ….

and specifically with my own family, calm not anger, praise not criticise, speak not shout

wishing you all a joyous and healthy 2016!

after all the hard work of shopping, wrapping, preparing and cleaning – this is how i spent my new years day – sat on the sofa in front of the tv wrapped in a blanket.

  1. Lovely. I’ve been reading your blogs for the last year now and it has given me great pleasure.
    I’ve been on an extended twitter sabbatical, so not seen your tweets lately but I remember the photos of your tulips in the Spring which inspired me to photo mine in the garden just holding a piece of black card behind them and they came out surprisingly well!
    A happy and fulfilling 2016 to you and your family. X

    (ps Robert never said how the turkey came out at Christmas! And which method he settled on in the end)
