Happy New Year

I wish all of my blog friends a peaceful, healthy and productive 2014.
May everything turn out just the way you hope.


I made this card on a picture by New Zealand photographer Grant Sheehan, who has just
published a book about this country's lighthouses. 
I greatly covet this book, and I intend to use my Christmas book voucher (Mr A gives me one
every year, bless him)  to buy it just as soon as I can get to a bookshop.

The picture shows the Cape Campbell lighthouse illuminated by a full moon.

This topic took me straight back to Australia in October a couple of years ago. 
A friend and I visited the Otway Fly, 2½ hours' drive from Melbourne.
The walkway is built among the treetops, and is 30m (98½ ft) above the forest floor - if you 
climb the 'spiral tower', you will be 47m (154 ft) up. 
I don't normally feel too comfortable with heights, but this was a great experience.

Last Night's Sunset

I didn't think that I would get to take any new photos to post for this theme, but last night we had a beautiful sunset at the end of a very hot day.

The Last Day of School

Tomorrow is the last day of this school year at my College.

What on earth shall I do with myself?
