Where have I been and what have I been doing? Well, the days have been full and have flown by but there is nothing terribly exciting to report. I've been quite preoccupied with some difficult situations among family and friends, where cancer is affecting far too many people who are dear to me.
Then a few days ago, I had an email from my long-time blogging friend, e, who said she was missing my 'cheerful voice.' That made me realise how deep into despond I was sinking and that I really ought to shake myself out of it. I have been reading some of my favourite blogs and finding that many of you have been writing about things that make you cheerful and grateful and this morning the postman brought me a package from Nan at her Hill Farm; it was a book that has had me chuckling all day. Thank you all for kick-starting my optimism. I'm now ready to think of my own reasons to be cheerful.
I have plans for writing about the book that arrived today but that is for later in the week. In the meantime I will just remind myself how lucky I am:
My three lovely grandchildren
Living by the sea
First signs of Spring
