Peace. It doesn’t happen very often, certainly not at home. Me, Mr B, three children, seven telephones, three TV’s, various gadgets and gizmos that all bong and bing with every new interaction with the outside world. Dishwashers, tumble drier, washing machine, doors slamming, dog barking…. there is a constant hum at home.
Which is why holidays are such a welcome break. Holiday and whilst there is little silence, there is often peace.
And peace being the theme of this week’s Gallery. This reminder of twenty minutes last year sprang to mind. (and actually other than three in the morning this might be the last time we had any peace!).

An expletive may have shattered the peace at that point. Oh well. It was good whilst it lasted!!
