December in pictures

The gorgeous streets of Salon de Provence, a long awaited visit to my parents in Provence.

Christmas was in UK this year, it was nice not to travel anywhere and have some time off to rest, be spend time with friends and family.

Of course December means a lot of socialising, over indulging and indoor living – what a relief on New Year’s Day to wake-up to a gorgeous blue sky, I have loved January the first walking through the countryside with the people in my life.

New Year's Day


More fresh air was required before getting back into the full swings of January, we headed to the North and went on a great hiking starting from Edale going up to Kinder Scout, the day was slightly misty which added to the eery atmosphere…my obsession with photography caused me a bruise on the hip, wet trousers and a lot of laughter. ┬áThe kids started the walk slightly despondent but when they saw the climbing challenge ahead they soon led us to the top…
