introducing my son adam and his wife michelle...learning to surf...somewhere in aus!
my kids are home! safe and sound and beautifully brown after three weeks in the australian sunshine.
seems they had a wonderful time, are not (as yet anyway!) tempted to move to australia. yep...afraid the nomadic thing seems to run in the blood.
what's more, they came bearing gifts...duty free camels! smoking in the uk is a very expensive business. i am more than happy to exchange board and lodging for a couple of cartons of duty free. ;-)
we in south ayrshire are enjoying our third day in a row of.... drum roll...clear skies and sunshine. this morning the hills are white with frost, the sheep appear unaffected by their new frozen food...they continue to munch relentlessly.
I am happy and at peace ...once more breaking into tuneless song and executing snazzy dance steps all by myself! my heart celebrates the return of my muse.
Of course we still have enormous problems, we are still separated by the atlantic and our diverse cultures. The circumstances of our past experiences leaving herself and myself with vastly different life expectations. for now, it is enough to hear the beloved voice and share the day to day events of our lives.
