The new January Squares challenge, hosted as ever by Becky, the Queen of Squares,  is all about ____light. That’s words ending in light. In this often dull month light of any kind is what we all need to lift our spirits as we wait impatiently for spring to begin. Click on the link to find out more.


leading-light (noun) or range-lights are usually navigational lights in a harbour used by vessels to manoeuvre into harbour at night. Or it can refer to the pattern of lights at night on the mast of a vessel to indicate its size or in the case of a tug boat, the number of barges it is towing.

I have gone slightly off-piste here to use a (made-up) word lightleading-lights which in this instance are showing the way through this entrance/exit in the National Museum of Australia, Canberra.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I came across this photo when I was browsing through some old stuff and thought I had to use it, then had to come up with a word!

    1. Another dull Sunday, but at least the rain stopped mid morning. I’m feeling very blergh at the moment, can’t be bothered to do anything much.

      1. It’s your SAD time of year, isn’t it? One of my reasons for being here. At least Becky and your photo challenge are keeping you busy. 🙂 No news yet for your son?
