    Point & Shoot

    For my birthday last week I got a fantastic new camera that his been on my wish list for quite a while. A fab Olympus PEN. Isn’t it cute? I’m still learning the ropes with it and I think I will be for quite a while. Excuse me while my blog turns into my own personal photo album while I take up my new hobby. I’ve always been a closet photog. Please bear with me.

    One last hurrah…

    Just when it looked liked March would come in like a lamb, we opened our eyes to wake to this…

    I, for one, can’t wait to Spring Forward this weekend, how about you?

    Oh and if you are looking for a good escape from all this snow might I suggest clicking over to the right and Looking Through The Lens if you have not yet for a romantic island escape.


    All the best,

    It’s A Blogiversay & Merry Christmas!

    Hello folks today I’m celebrating and not just because Christmas is almost here but because today is my 3rd Blogiversary!

    So Merry Christmas to all of you and Happy Blogiversay to me! Here is a little pose from me and a couple of real Rocketts. Can you guess which one I am? Let’s just pretend I’m in Rocketts shape and not in jeans and my ratty oversized sweater shall we? Ok, thanks.


    To celebrate I’m giving away the cheer and having a giveaway. One lucky commenter will win this 10 pack of books from MY bookshelf from super fab romance authors.

    So please leave a comment saying whatever you like as long as it’s nice you’ll be in and hey, if you like pass the word on Twitter or something, it’s just good Karma I think. The winner will be picked on Sunday night.

    Thanks so much to all of you, my blog friends for following me these past years. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years. I truly feel like I’ve developed some true friendships which seems so odd but I know it’s true and I thank you all for being here and coming back. This is a surprising and lovely resting place.

    Best and with love,


    and the Jackster too!!
