I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Through the round window

"A house, with a door, 1 2 3 4, ready to play, what's the day?

Do you remember?

I took this picture the other day and for nostalgic reasons unknown to me - being ill can play funny old tricks on the memory I'm guessing - I was transported back to my childhood.

Maybe it was the big bowl of Heinz tomato soup I was sipping, being wrapped up warm suffering at this time of the year with a cold, sneezing and smelling of vapour rub when all I wanted to do was jump in the big pile of leaves making me feel like I was four years old-ish again - who knows - but for a brief meditating moment {or two} I was hit with deja vu.

Or depending on age how about -

"Here's a house, here's a door. Windows: 1 2 3 4, ready to knock? Turn the lock.................."

-what is it?

"It's Play School." - of course.

Sneezes have turned into snuffles and I'm most definitely on the mend - thank you all for asking - and of course I'm still staying wrapped up warm rediscovering itchy woolly hats, gloves, scarves and other paraphernalia tucked away in boxes and dragging out warm padded jackets and boots plus reacquainting myself with old wip quilts and crochet blankets I abandoned such a very (it feels like) long time ago, back in the Spring.

Keep warm, cosy and snuggled.
