At last


Today was the handing over ceremony from 16 Air Assault Brigade to 3 Commando – the baton has been handed on and D is on his way home from Helmand.

The sun is shining and K and I are lying doing nothing much at all. Mike is watching the Paris – Roubaix Cycle race, almost a religious experience for him and all th dogs are sleeping in the shade.

For now, all is right with my world and I am truly grateful!

The only slight nagging thought is that I have not yet written my Napowrimo poem for today…I wonder if it because I am at peace that nothing is scratching away at my senses, waiting for me to write it down?

 

 

Later…very lame Napowrimo effort at https://sallyjblackmore.co.uk/napowrimo/passion-pink-shoes/, but a commitment is a commitment! Hopefully I’ll do better tomorrow!
