I am thinking of Kathy so much but determined to do as she suggests and "savour the simple pleasures of life" - the best way to honour her memory!

Last night was our library Christmas "do" which was really enjoyable. After getting ripped off year after year with over-priced, mass produced Christmas meals in restaurants, we now get together in someone's house and bring our own food. We all contribute and it costs us very little and we get great food, a comfortable environment and no hassle! I feel very lucky to work with such a great team of people and hope we'll still be together come the New Year!

I went on a wedding shoot with A on saturday. I bought a new lens the other day (a Sigma 70-200 mm f2.8) and it had it's first outing - I loved it! It's quite heavy but it really performed well. It focuses fast, performs well in low light and has great DOF.

The next three days I'm working :( I would much rather be at home getting ready for Christmas but the atmosphere in the library is always quite jolly at this time of year.

Reading your last few posts and catching up. I haven't been in a posting frame of mind lately, and I've also not had the time. I just encourage you not to blame yourself for things that are beyond your control, and do take Phil's advice on this. And I'm still your friend!!

I'm very sorry to hear you've lost another blog friend, especially at such a young age. That never seems right.

I hope your Christmas preparations will instill a feeling of peace and calm during this season. (((hugs)))
