A day by the pool. This beautiful pool.

Jumping in photos.

Beers, cards, feminist chats.

Picking up Hannah – no more solo. And someone to tell my hilarious jokes and comments to.

Our beautiful finca for the week. It’s so gorgeous!

Going for a swim and then eating bread and cheese on the sunbeds. Bliss.

A morning swim. I like the getting ready for work in the changing rooms too.
My colourful breakfast of organic porridge and loads of fruit (that’s not actually my porridge because 1) I was too hungry to even think about pausing to take a photo and 2) I did not make mine look nice at all. I just wanted to eat the thing)
The orange light on the landing.

A moment to myself on the bench in the park, with the sun on my face
The colour of the sky as I left the office. With the beautiful sliver of moon hanging there.
Swimming in the lido after work, under the beautiful dark sky. It was amazing to look up and see the night above you.

My iced tea in the fridge this morning. It had a really cool two level effect and the teabags were floating totally upright.
Swimming and floating on my back, blocking out all the noise and all the people. It’s so nice to be in water.

Walking down to there pool and seeing the clear blue sky, feeling no wind and looking out at the flat, beautiful sea. Felt a bit bad that I was about to pay to go into a pool. Although it would have been freezing out there!
Seeing photos of the house we’ll be staying at in Australia in December. Oh my god. It’s going to be so good!

The Farmer’s Market down on the waterfront with the sun shining and everybody smiling
Driving up Mt Vic at night to see the huge moon and the city lights. It was gorgeous and so warm and calm. One of the best things we’ve done here.
