I feel very guilty at not having posted here for so long - I am surprised if anyone still reads my blog! I have no real excuse, except that life, in all its rather tricky ways, has got in the way!
The above photograph was taken in the summer, when the early morning sun slanted in the garden in a rather attractive way. Now alas, the early sun, if there is any, is from the other corner of the garden, and the sun stays low all day! There are a lot of tallish trees on our right hand side, which belong the the garden next door, which give shade most of the day now, so we don't get much sun. The house belongs to a very old lady, who, I suspect has no idea what the garden is like now. Oh well, maybe if her son comes over from Australia again, we can prevail upon him to trim the hedge/trees a bit!
Our holiday seems a long way away now. We occasionally think about booking another cruise, but we would like to go to the eastern Mediterranean this time, and that means flying to somewhere, like Venice, first. I've no objection to Venice, but the hassle of flying, or rather, actually getting on the the plane, rather puts me off. So we have decided, more or less, to wait until much nearer the time, see how we are healthwise, and then get a last minute, cheaper, holiday.
Otherwise our family stays as it was. We still have the dog, who is as ever fixated on food, my daughter is moving house later this year, and our great granddaughter is now at proper school, being a "Rising 5". It just doesn't seem possible that time has gone so quickly!
