It’s been a month of long summer weekends and hectic weekday workdays. 

We’ve been to the beach most weeks, for lazy barefoot walks and late afternoon swims, refreshing on the hotter days.

We’ve enjoyed blueberry picking, as well as continuing to buy delicious summer fruits from local growers. A wet spring has produced a bumper crop of large juicy cherries.  

Earlier this month, Hobart hosted the 5th Test of “The Ashes”, a long standing cricket challenge between Australia and England. As this was the first time a game has even been held in Tasmania, the locals were rather excited. Various city buildings were lit up in the “green and gold” colours of Australia and there was a joyous atmosphere around the city.

I’m moving to a new role within my current company, so handing over my own workload to someone new whilst learning new tasks has required overtime on work days, therefore my weekends have felt extra precious.

The month began with the final days of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race, with the visiting yachts moored up on Hobart Waterfront. 

The month has ended with MONA FOMA, a music and arts festival. The highlight is a fabulous laser light show across Hobart with a soundtrack. These photos show the lights from various spots in the city.

The month has flown by, after a slow start I have already started ticking things off my “52 things in 52 Weeks challenge.  Here are my first weekly selfies to sum up my January 2022.

This is my contribution to Ju-Lyn and Brian’s monthly “Changing Seasons” challenge.
