Halloween at the Old Faversham Cottage. - I spent quite a few months in the nice town of Faversham, Kent and I used to walk every morning in front of this lovely cottage by the wharf, on my way to work. I remember I used to wonder about how pretty life could be in such a fairytale little house. I never met the owners, but I think they would have been very proud to have their own house photographed by tourists and "watched" by residents .... I wish they could see my little (and poor) version of their lovely place. 🏠🌹📫
#Canterbury is gorgeous, even when it's dark, rainy and cold! Had a lovely meal and evening while starting to plan my wedding there tonight. Should probably get engaged first, but whatevs 😉

I really didn’t get to explore today. Prepping for the arrival of the in-laws while getting the kid to a birthday party put paid to that. But I’ve been thinking about today’s #explore prompt for @allison_sadler_ and @bettymagazine’s #freeupmyinsta challenge.
I have these self-imposed rules for Instagram. I don’t really do reposting of images I took a while ago. I tend to take and post in the same hour. Sometimes, a couple of hours later. At the most, a latergram might be ~24 hours old. I guess I’ve taken the insta part of Instagram to heart. And, like my blog and twitter before it, it’s more of a reverse chronological life log than a curated feed. I recognise that my way isn’t the way that other folk use it, but also, with the way that twitter and Facebook are going, I’m kinda revisiting how I use social media and wondering if I should change how I Instagram. So in the spirit of freedom and exploration, here’s a photo from mid-August. When, having passed my driving test at the grand old age of 40, I went off exploring by myself, in my wee #minicooper and stayed in a shepherd hut in a field. It was the first time I’d driven for that long by myself. And it felt amazing.
The next day I did some more exploring, to @chapeldownwines and Dungeness, before heading home, relaxed and recharged.
So here we go. I’ve genuinely free’d up my insta. Thanks ladies! I’m looking forward to seeing where this new sense of freedom takes me next.
