Spring Harvest

I said it was windy. I said it would be cold. I did not say it would be perishingly cold or that I would have neglected to bring any Arctic gear with me. As in no thick coat or hat or scarf or gloves. The duvet is the closest to warm gear, and I am not up to wearing it around the site. I have, however, discovered where the main heating blowers thingys in the Big Top are, and so help me, I am first in the doors to appropriate a seat where I will not turn into a popsicle.

I have walked on the beach. I have collected stones. I have paddled in the water, and yes, I still have 10 toes. I checked. David turned 18 yesterday,and had a great day. I hardly saw him. He was off doing things with his friends.

Glad your back. Even though it was bitter cold was it restful for you? Happy birthday to your son. Yes, they get that age and want little to do with "us" but that's only a stage. I'm closer to my children as adults than ever and it is such a blessing.

I agree. There comes the time when their friends are more fun that we are, but they do come back again, as I'm sure you know.

Welcome home.

Just wear the duvet. I've been to several SH events with a plate of toast in my hand, and no-one seemed to notice. Or, wrap yourself in a blanket, attach a knitting needle to it and pretend that you're creating in a medatitive sense. Really, what did you expect from Skegness?

BRRR! I really don't like being cold. But I'm glad you had a good time anyway!
