I really must get my bum into gear. When I arrived back in my Island home I started in a whirlwind of getting things done and catching up. Last week a friend came to stay and it made me relax. Now I can't get myself back into gear mentally or physically. Of course I've been doing things: mainly indoors since the perfect summer weather we were having turned back to our normal summer weather but there is a big difference between just doing things and Doing Things!
So today I've resolved at least to start blogging again whilst I'm setting up my new Network Cloud Drive and this afternoon I'll get into the garden and also do some outside house maintenance. Didn't you just want to know all that?
The fish are doing really well. They are huge now. The plastic bag was about the size of a large waterlily leaf so you can get some idea of how much they have grown in two years.
Ah. Yes. Thankful Thursday. I look out of my window at the peace of my garden and the children down on the beach and the pier, swimming and pier jumping and the dog walkers along the shore below me and it makes me realise just how thankful I am and, I presume, everyone of you who read this post should be, for the fact that we are not living in a zone of conflict where even the basic necessities of life, never mind the things we think we 'need' to maintain our pleasant life styles, are denied us.
