I see no ships

We love our rented beach hut very much.

This one's for Eric

I lost someone this week. I had known him nearly 20 years and we had shared the best of times and worst of times. Over the last year or so, we had found our balance and talked about vegetable growing, sport and life, rather than the business we both cared so passionately about. I will miss him - he made our rabbit's hutch, he was instrumental in me getting an allotment and he drove a car I seem to see everywhere.
I have hidden myself in work this week - it felt right - but now I have a two week self-imposed break and I am hoping the methodical nature of crochet, the activity of digging and weeding as well as a beach hut and the football I love so much will get me through.

Peace and quiet

A whole day ahead and not much more to do than some gardening, washing, crocheting and parenting. I have been a little manic lately so the sun is shining and we have our sun block - if you need me I'll be in the garden.
