Guys, it's August already! Where is our summer going?! Time is flying by in a blur...I can't bear to think of school supplies and uniforms and term time and routine. This summer I feel like I want to hold on extra tight to the passing days as this year will be the last year our boys are all in the same school together. Jack is going into P7 come September and my wee baby Will (baby no more!) is headed into P2. Big changes!
The days are long but the years are short - never a truer word!
We spend the summer (I train it to work for shoots three days a week - I'm not slacking, promise!) at our little house at the North Coast - lovingly nicknamed our Rad Retreat . The place where Lindsay and I dream up many, many plans for RinkaDink, where bottles of wine accompany fish&chips at least once a week and where every single person and animal in our family feels most happy and relaxed. It is my favourite place on earth.
The rest of our summer will consist of long walks along the coast, dipping our feet into the freezing Irish sea, staying up late watching movies and reading books and eating and drinking whatever takes our fancy. Life is good 💛
I'll check in here on the blog every now and again. In the meantime I hope you lot are having an awesome summer, making memories and taking plenty of photos to remember this little blink of time before the new term begins and the kids are all immediately another year older and another shoe size bigger. There is no greater evidence of the speed of passing time than seeing your wee one standing before you in their new school uniform!
Here's a selection of snaps I've taken with my iPhone and Fuji XT-1 so far (click on the white arrows to scroll through).
