Well finally Dear Reader the rain has abated. I would like to say ‘has stopped’ but I fear that we are not out of the woods weatherwise just yet!
But there are Lilacs in the garden
And despite the heavy rain, they are full with flower and scent
Across the way in ‘the business’ bookings have been coming in apace (*mops brow*) and we’ve had loads of enquiries which might well turn in to bookings (*crosses fingers*) and so I therefore might sleep more soundly at night (*bank manager also mops brow*). We decided to accept pets (dogs seem to be popular but we are open to suggestion) and pretty much all the bookings so far have included a furry friend or two – so that seems to have been a good decision!
Not Roses round this door but a very lovely Wisteria which is making its way up the wall
All in all Dear Reader the karma seems to have improved immeasurably in comparison to the end of last year and the beginning of this year and for that I am glad. With the sunshine comes optimism and hope and at least for now, the dark times seem to be behind us. Times are a changin’ for all of my brood on the sunny Isle and that is perhaps no bad thing.
And so the weekend rolls around yet again. And what has been achieved in the week since I last wittered on here? I have learned to Tweet (with no great zip of pithy humour it must be admitted) and am enjoying the tweets of such luminaries as Stephen Fry and Caitlin Moran which make me laugh – and someone purporting to be the Queen (@Queen_UK) which is hysterical. I have cleared out no cupboards, charity shopped no clothes and hoovered no carpets AND the fridge is bare. I have however watched about 300 episodes of The Wire though which surely must make up for some of it….
And the weekend to come may include (in no particular order) tapas, champagne, piggies, tearooms and java. Watch this space Dear Reader and enjoy your weekend.
