Welcome summer

Today, at last, it was hot – the kind of weather where it feels like Christmas is nearing.  The beach in the morning, eating lunch outside on the grass, listening to the cicadas. Iceblocks to cool off the boys in the afternoon.  Our agapanthus finally blooming out front, cherry tomatoes and corn out the back…ahhh summer!

I played around with the Instagram app today and isn’t it a clever thing…makes any crappy photo suddenly appear arty and retro.  I know lots of other bloggers use it to pretty up the pics on their blogs, but personally I like to record the actual photo without heavy filtering.  Having said that, you can’t deny that Instagram adds instant cool!

Now the decorations are done, it’s time to do some serious Christmas baking 🙂
