Well I am feeling a little crestfallen after the calamities of Thursday, but I have contacted a couple of doctors and have Bertha checked in for a series of minor ops and I live in hope that she will be all mended before handover. Talking about living in hope ...
We have spent the last 2 days at Solfest in Cumbria and it makes a fitting grand finale in a friendly and well meant, hippy, veggie way. We did some whittling, and watched some mediocre performances along with a couple that were dreadful and a smattering of really rather good. There was a procession of people dressed as vikings, prawns, pirates, people in fat suits, a smurf and a couple of bananas, nearly all in a state of mild inebriation, with yours truly being one exception. Living in hope as I do, I turned up expecting to be able to get some cash somewhere on site ... but no. So I had to concentrate my meagre funds on essentials like food, and a gangster hat for Sam.
So now that my mini adventure is all over, I feel really glad that I did it, but can't remember why I did exactly. But right now, post holiday, life feels simpler and bigger somehow. The huge Scottish landscapes filled me with awe and a sense of smallness. The Welsh coastlines were beautiful and swept me clean. Now I am back home with Ben and Sam I feel peaceful and happy.
Well that's the end to this blog. Thank you for the lovely comments that kept me writing and I am already looking forward to the next one.
Big love to you all xxx
