Wow it seems like I have been away forever. It feels like I have been in hibernation, for some part not being too bothered whether I am connected to the world-wide web and then another time frantic over getting a connection to see the happenings of all the lovely bloggers I read. I have to confess I have been browsing and only reading without commenting which I must apologise for as it may seem rather rude to some.
There has been a lot going on at home and work lately that has taken up a lot of my time and when I get a spare moment all I tend to do is read. The problem with only having the allotted time is not having the time to make notes or even being bothered to write down my thoughts after reading and then like a puff of magical smoke they blow away.
A run down of the books I have read will be very short as my concentration span has suffered lately (what a mess right!)
Rosie Hopkins’ Sweet Shop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
Heart Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne (Only started)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (WOW)
Personally I would have like to read more but I just haven’t got the head space or tube time. It is amazing what you can observe on a packed tube when you are either reading out the corner of your eye or too tired to read you are just aimlessly watching the goings on around you.
Then there is a day like today. The day of the small commitment service for my dear auntie’s ashes. Today is the day that she is finally at peace with the love of her life and both loves of my life are back together for eternity. I have to admit I cried but they were tears partly of sadness for the massive loss and part joy that she has finally been reunited with her love and my dear uncle. The sun shone over us as the ceremony took place and I looked up into the clear blue sky as I said the lords prayer.
Now I’m sitting at home after a long drive back from the coast to London and writing this with my four-legged companion by my feet and my book ready to read. To all of you reading this or just flicking through whether you’re religious or not please find comfort and love from this prayer as much as I have for many years past and many to come.
Have a great day.
