Summertime in England means you have to be prepared. One day you can be in heat so hot you can cook food wrapped in foil outside. The next you need wellies and coats as thick and warm as you would on a winters day. But I wouldn’t have it another way, well maybe that’s not 100 % true, but I am mostly happy with my lot. There’s been lots of counting this week, and looking back in time. Funny how things both change and stay the same.
I feel stuck for words today. It has been one emotional week, as I have already posted . But this morning sees me really stuck for words. So I have turned to a random word generator, yes there are such things, how odd. So lets have a look at the chosen words :
Positive, I sometimes struggle with this , I am sad to say that my cup is often half empty not half full. Happily I am surrounded by people who are the opposite, so things usually work out just fine in the end.
Water, well I love water in all its guises, drinking it, swimming in it , even the rain as it falls can fill me with joy as it soaks the seeds or waters the plants. You can get too m much of a good thing though and I often wish it could come in the night rather than the day, and be a little more evenly distributed across the lands.
Lucky, oh how lucky Iam to be here when there are so many who are not, mostly healthy and happy, with a roof over my head and food in the fridge. Long may it last.
We awoke to the news of another disaster in London and my daughter is setting off on her adventure. The two events seemingly unconnected but for those involved , both overflowing with emotions.
As my daughter pops off to the USA for a 4 month adventure with Camp America, full of twenty years of encouragement to be independent, thoughtful and confident, I should be happy, a job well done. But I cant help feel a little tinge of sadness, or is it helplessness ? as she goes off into the sunset on her own.
Apart from that it has been a busy day of failed IT skills that still leaves me catching up , but here’s some of the next collages for the month of June.
Happy Birthday to me! Busy day, cards and cake and stuff. Meeting new people, making connections, slowly, slowly moving forwards. Even managed to sort out downloading images in a new way as the usual method has failed me over the last few days. Tried not to get too political , hard not to so here we are, keeping things together, making a mark and counting .
Well the weathers not been the best for the last few days, pouring with rain and the wind blowing up a right storm. I have been working hard, but I am struggling to upload images in order to post them. I have given up tonight and will post the ones I have already uploaded to the laptop. I had hoped to get caught up and then be able to post tomorrow on its own. However its not to be, plans are always a changing.
Well I have had a busy few days my friends, how about you ? I have been taking part in a performance, very strange thing for me. I have been taking part in a performance by the company CIRCA , absolutely fascinating taking part in it and a stunning performance in the park in Blackpool. Well here we are catching up with the more important collages , on another sad day for people who want to be safe as they go about their normal activities I am more convinced that carrying on our everyday life is as important as ever.
