Pat and Dave were coming for dinner tonight but Dave has, very unusually, picked up a stinker of a cold and Pat decided that he was not going to share it with CJ and me. Thanks Pat. That's very much appreciated although we missed your company. The weather looked no great shakes so I decided to have another blitz on the loft. Several years ago I had a massive clear out. Before that it was impossible to get into the loft past the first yard or so without clambering over and moving things. Today was a case of just fine tuning those efforts, seeing what was left and sorting through things. It was a Good Day.
This is only half of the loft. There's still some way to go but getting there!
We may be apart but when I look at the sky and remember that we are standing on the same earth, looking at the same moon, somehow you don't seem so far away after all.
Life isn't about dawdling to the grave, arriving safely in an attractive, wrinkle-free body but rather an adventure that ends skidding in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, totally worn out, screaming "Yee-ha. What a ride!!"
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain. (With thanks to shabby girl ofA Travelling Fish)
But what are plans other than more restrictions? (With thanks to Pauline)

Having lived the majority of my life in the Hebrides where my heart is, I feel I can now call myself a Hebridean. For nine years until this winter I lived half my life in New Zealand: a country I love and hope to return to as a part-time Kiwi.
