Feeling a little travel weary now. The crossing wasn't rough but there was enough swell to constantly remind you that you were on a ship. Unfortunately the people in the next cabin had brought their hobby with them - carpentry - what on earth they were tapping away at all night I can't begin to imagine - best not go there! Brittany was swathed in fog along the coast but as we moved inland it gradually disappeared though only to reveal a sort of sunless murky grey. All is well at the house. People from the Water Company had needed access to our pipes and meter for some reason and our neighbour had let them into the garage - no idea what they'd been doing but we now seem to have much more water pressure……. that'll test the joints!
Shopping done the trip home was one of taking lanes never travelled before and there certainly are a lot of them. We found Aignan, a lovely village boasting a beautiful church, an Electricity Museum, a dam, a reservoir and a canal. Lots of photo ops there and I have no doubt that we'll be going back! We also found two derelict houses out in the "wilds" both very photogenic. And all that on the trip home from the supermarket……a photographers dream!

I could be incandescent with rage……..there was a long list of swear words running through my brain - good job I can't spell most of them and they wouldn't be in spell check…….would they? ……. but somehow I've calmed myself. It's not worth the angst, it won't achieve anything and the gratification will be instant, fleeting and unsatisfactory. I must think of myself, my decision and what I want for a change.
I will not be diverted.
There, that's better. Like a list, written and then left behind, but its contents remembered I have exorcised the cause of my initial anger through the act of writing it down - detail is unnecessary.
So I can now smile, relax and prepare to enjoy!
On a different note a shopping trip to Plymouth today resulted in a lovely selection of photographs, mostly architecture and no purchases - surely a first for me!

Yesterday I had my Pre-Op Assessment and today I begin the wait for a letter which will tell me when I will be having the surgery on my knee. I am full of the little worries and niggles that accompany such an event but the pain is increasing day by day . You would think that I would have a regime of pill taking to keep it at bay but no…I'm still as haphazard as ever! I am fortunate in that I have family and friends who nag me in the kindest possible way. Usually along the lines of - Oi! have you taken your pills??

It's always good to have something which pleases you to look at. That is why we surround ourselves with beautiful things.

Not like me I know but the injury from my previous escapade ( See "The Result of falling Down a Bank") is causing more and more pain as the days go by, making me

Simple compliments, statements really, but ones that can lift the heart, can mean a lot. At the beginning of a relationship they happen all the time. It's part of courtship. There's an old fashioned word if ever I heard one, but whatever we call it it's what we do. Sadly, with time, they disappear, unless you're in a really wonderful relationship which never slides into the mundane, the daily routine which has no space for the exchange of these little niceties. So it's lucky the lady, or the man who gets them all their life. And once they have gone, what then? Is it possible to get them back? Does anyone know?
