THINGS HAVE FABULOUSLY changed around here. My site has gone under the cropping tool whose possibilities surprise me each time I lay fingers on the keyboard. I love the minimalistic style I have achieved as a reward of hours of pasting and deleting. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I (temporarily) do. And just by looking at the photos of kids playing in the enormous puddle, you can be sure English weather hasn't spoilt us lately offering tree-bending wind, rain (sprinkle of snow as of today), getting a cold just looking out the window. And I think I have sneezed a couple of times too often to ignore it so excuse me while I bundle up in ridiculously soft blanket and finish a book I have started reading... before Christmas. I'd better hurry, it'll be midnight before I know it.
