Keep On Keeping On

I spotted this shot a while ago over at the ever engaging home of Pineapple Luv. I nicked it for a rainy day and used it on a snowy one instead. The kids, cock-a-hoop at a freebie off school - have made a snowman. If you live in Cornwall - the relatively balmy South West county of the UK that struts out into the Celtic Sea like a boot aimed at Ireland's arse - you'll appreciate that this could be a "once in a lifetime" experience.

I have a general loathing of those "motivational" prints and posters you see hanging in typically corporate offices. You know the kind of thing: "The surest way not to fail is to determine to succeed" and the like. Very pithy, but with loads more potential for piss-take than pith. However, I have to say there's something uplifting about this shot - in every sense.

As my absence here may have suggested, it's been a difficult few months for me, and Sea Nymph in particular. It's good to be back.
