May, part two. Some people are good at moving, but it turns out I’m not. We all react differently to change, and even if we know it’s the right thing, the necessary thing, because stagnation isn’t ever good, it’s still hard. We haven’t moved far - just outside the city, primarily to gain some outside space for the lads - but I’ve been a city girl for most of my life. And the familiarity of a place somehow becomes a part of who you are. Or that’s how it feels anyway. So yes, May was a very mixed month.
But then you get outside, you go for walks, you get into nature - and if you’re me, you take photos of some great old buildings - and you exhale again. Just to balance yourself out a little.

And then there was this sunset (also on cover). We’d been at the house on a Friday evening to meet someone, and left tired. It was late. To be honest I wanted to head home and have food and hit the sofa, but the lads needed a run, so we drove down the coast to Gullane. Driving on the coastal road, the light was beautiful over the Forth, but as we arrived at Gullane and parked above the beach, suddenly the light changed.
One of those moments when you think, ‘I’m really glad I didn’t just go home and hit the sofa...’
And just like that, it was gone.
