Day 110

Beach days... in April!

We have had the most glorious couple of days in Guernsey – it has been warm and sunny and just beautiful. These are the days I most appreciate living in Guernsey.

After school we headed to the beach with friends so the children could play together and then we had fish and chips for tea.

More moments of gratitude. More time to appreciate all the good things we have. More laughter and smiles. We are so very fortunate to have all of this.

Day 43

Castle view

Today we had a team training session and once again we had the most fantastic view out over the castle breakwater and the islands.

It made concentrating quite tough!

Day 23

Blessings

…even when the weather is rough and the sea is frothy and choppy.
…even when I feel as though life is busy and I am tired and the kids are poorly.
… even when all I think about are the things I don’t have rather than what I do have.

I know I am blessed and I am grateful for what I do have. Sometimes, I just need to keep reminding myself of the good things.

Day 14

FamilyIt was a long trip home – about 24 hours door-to-door going from Uganda to Dubai then to Gatwick and finally back to Guernsey.

I managed to stay awake until about 7pm and then had to go to bed. I almost fell asleep in a restaurant at lunchtime but woke up a little with a quick walk on the beach.

I have missed my wonderful family. It is good to be home.

A year in pictures – Day 365

Happy New Year

We have had a lovely day and our friends Emma and Martin came for lunch along with their daughter Ava and The Little Misters bestie Maxi!

We had a lovely lunch and then dragged ourselves out for a walk around Fort Houmet. It was unbelievably windy but we were very excited to see a seal real close to shore.

The sea was gorgeous; huge waves and really wild but there is something about it that I love. Today the tide was high so the waves were coming up right against the fort and I could taste the sea on my lips. It smelt and tasted like home and I am grateful to be here, and especially grateful for such wonderful family and friends.

Happy New Year Everyone x

A year in pictures – Day 364

Climbing

The weather has been pretty awful. Wet with gale force winds but we managed to get out for half an hour between showers.

The kids were climbing up the big rocks at Grandes Rocques and it was reasonably sheltered. The waves were massive though. Lovely.

A year in pictures – Day 361

Windy walkAnother lovely day spent with my cousin Tim and his family.

We took a short walk across the week – the wind was absolutely phenomenal and the sea had whipped up foam all along the shoreline!

Such a beautiful beach though, and it was nice to get out. I can’t take credit for this photo though – Tim took it!

A year in pictures – Day 360

26 December

As usual on Boxing Day we all went to Cobo Beach for the annual swim. This year I broke with tradition and decided to go in myself.

It was absolutely flipping freezing, but I have to admit I quite enjoyed it! I will not subject you of any horrendous pictures of me in a swimsuit though!

It was lovely to see the kids playing together on the beach. We love it in all weathers, regardless of whether it is warm and sunny or cold and windy!

A year in pictures – Day 333

Clouds of glory

This morning I had a meeting in town and once I had climbed the several flights of stairs to the meeting room at the top I was graced with this glorious view.

Sometimes living on this island feels like an enormous privilege. Even when I am working I get to see some of the most beautiful things and the loveliest views. That’ll do.
