At last! The darkness has descended and the night has begun! At last the days will begun to stay around that little bit longer. At last the year is turning and Spring is on the way, after a couple of months of hail, snow, wind and freezing weather of course! How lovely to think there will be more light, buds on trees, blossoms and gaiety all around once more. The shortest day celebrated the fact by almost allowing the sun to shine. The rain fell where it belonged, elsewhere, and when I sauntered around the town the clouds had a bright golden edge to them.
I wanted to do a post full of insight and significance but the bug has worn me out again. My little brain is dull tonight, and wasn't much better this morning. As I did the women's work today, hoovering and such like, I left the front door ajar. An ambulance paramedic approached enquiring for a shop selling hot food. When I have a bug the mind often blocks things and as I attempted to send her to the bakers shops for overpriced pies and soup I could not remember the shops name, it has only come to mind now I write this, 'Greggs.' It has taken all day to arrive, and possibly it has taken the ambulance crew all day to find the shop after my directions! Why does this 'block' happen I wonder? I am sure my mother had this, and I suspect it runs in the family, like debt.
I am worried about my week away over Christmas. I will not be able to take the laptop as they use Sky and not Talk Talk. There is growing within me a sensation of desperation here. A week without fingertapping on this wee keyboard. A week without emails, a week without anon spamming me, a week without contact with the real world. A week in which I will have to talk to people! Oooooh. I think I am off to bed, I feel giddy.....
