Happy Diwali

Happy Diwali everyone!

This morning I woke up to this stunning view. The sunrise’s at the moment are beautiful, and every morning I wake up to warm light streaming through the gap in my curtain. I often leap out of bed with my camera or iphone in hand to try and capture the gorgeous light. This is a view that makes me a very happy lady indeed.



And today is Diwali, the celebration of light for the Hindu, Sikh and Jain. It is a time to rejoice in all the good in the world and can be celebrated as simply as lighting a candle in your home. The boyf is Hindu, so today is very special to him and his family. I feel honoured to be learning about his customs. This year I have made one of his Mother’s recipes called Rajma. It is a kidney bean curry and surprisingly delicious.

Happy Diwali and candles

In the spirit of Diwali, I would like to share my thanks and gratitude to all my wonderful readers and friends who have made this blog an absolute pleasure to write.  I wish you lots of positive energy for the coming year.x.
