The refurb was over and done with quickly enough. The site was ready to go back online. Then I moved house.

That is pandemonium.

It didn’t have to be, it never has to be, but it always seems to turn out that way.

Life is calming down, although the refurbishment of the house will take longer than the site! Makes it easier when a new sky provides Mesmerising Moment after Mesmerising Moment. (It is quite a distraction.)

So this is my new sky.

All images taken on an iPhone.


Software updates and a little refurb.
