Another year, another Earth Hour, time seems to be flying past at the moment. Oldest son was out and my husband wanted to watch television so it was just me and younger son who turned the lights out. We retreated to a bedroom and each wrapped in a blanket, we ate chocolate by the light of my solar lamp and chatted. Time with my teenagers seems so precious when I realise that within two years they might both be living away from home and it was a lovely quiet hour to chat without any of the usual electronic distractions.
With British Summer Time starting today it seemed extremely early when the alarm clock went off and I got up to take eldest son to work for an early shift - not as early as it felt for him though after his late night out!
I grabbed my camera as I left because the sun was just rising and the sky was a lovely mixture of pinks and purples. By the time, I had taken him to work the sun was higher in the sky and the colours were fading but I managed to get a couple of early morning shots.
