You paint a scene in few words so very well. Gem!
Thanks, Mike! I trust your move went well…
Move went well! Nothing on the practical front I ever do goes well…even now cannot find my box of shoes (been wearing the same scruffy old trainers for two weeks); Shirl lost her box of knickers for the first two days and had to wear mine (thankfully not the other way around) and I quite overlooked the fact that very old houses need fortunes spent on them, a thing Shirley is relishing in and I am not…won’t bore you any further…still I’ve got a few skits to write up regarding my failures and ineptitude generally! As ever may good fortune smile upon you
I look forward to hearing about your escapades. I have a history of falling in love with unsuitable old houses and buying them – but then I was young and had endless energy. Hope there’s not too much to do….
I am an old, old fool yet handily Shirley is quite good at that sort of stuff. She plus the chap we have found have months of work ahead of them!
so is life
Well said, my friend.
Beautiful and yet a little tragic, reminding us that we are but tiny cogs in some gigantic machine which will carry on with or without us. Oh, well, that’s nature!
Thank you, Chris. I nearly used a word in the title that intimated some kind of cycle, but in the end decided it would be less than subtle.
