Where We've Been


For one glorious week, we've been holidaying in Corfu - feeling the fierce force of the sun on our scalps, eating watermelon for breakfast, picking up handfuls of white pebbles and feeling the warmth of them in our palms, swimming in water so blue that its beauty hurt our eyes, soaking in a view so spectacular that it silenced us upon arrival and then kept surprising us with its majesty throughout the week, sheltering from the merciless midday sun, finding the time to rediscover the quiet joy of reading, feasting late into the night, accompanied by screaming crickets and whining mosquitoes, spending as much time in water as out, devising ever more elaborate ways to enjoy a swimming pool (synchronized swimming and water triathlon), laughing, (a  lot), and spending time with every one of my favourite people in the world.

I can't begin to describe just how wonderful it's been.
