Chill

Yep. Taking a week off to chill with my daughter. I haven't seen her in almost a year. She's been living in New Zealand but is coming home tomorrow. Yay! So I'm taking some time out just to be with her and catch up. I've hardly seen her over the past couple of years as I moved up to Yorkshire nearly 2 yrs ago for a while and when we moved back to Kent, Jen left for New Zealand a month later. So yeah. Catching up time needed. Got lots to talk about and shopping to be done. Movies to watch and lunches to be eaten. Fab!

Quite appropriate that the photo challenge word over at HS|MS is "chill". I kinda cheated. I actually took this photo (now heavily Photoshopped) last Summer. It's a glass of Mount Gay Rum and coke with plenty of ice. My drink. I love this drink. I added some texture to the photo in Photoshop and messed around with layer blend modes to make it look more "chilled" as it was taken on a very warm, bright sunny day!

Ok - hope everyone has a fab weekend/week. I'll be back next week at some point!

Nice editing on the photo.
How exciting, I hope you and your daughter have some WONDERFUL catch up time.

PS when are you gonna come chill in the USA for a wee holiday? We have awesome summers here in Nebraska, if you like extreme heat. And very pleasant Spring and Autumn if you prefer mild but still warm and sunny. :)
