The wordpress photo challenge suggested showing last year in photos, and I tried hard but it became an excuse for browsing through the thousands now deep inside the amazing tiny volume of 0.00125 cu.m. [a pretty good 4GB volume in computer terms but it sounds really really tiny in cubic metres – it must be the kind of size which matters]. A lovely way to waste spend several hours.
Last year was a good one – on January 1st 2012 I was on holiday in sunny Sanya, Hainan Island, China, before returning to freezing Shanghai (son no.1 and twin grandsons, then 4, now 5). Then time in Edinburgh (son no. 3 who succeeded in getting a studentship for his research) time in Manchester, England, to celebrate big sister’s 70th birthday, time in Cornwall with the friend I have known more or less continuously for 50 years, more time in Edinburgh and that was all in the first 5 months of the year. The rest, in Block Island (son no.2, family with my 3 grand-daughters live near). Wonderful. I got the photos down to 30, and even then have not managed to cover all nor can I rate what is in against what I left out.
