What have I been doing these past few weeks? Well.....
....I have been entertaining friends in the hills of the High Peak and the flatlands of the French Landes;
I have been plunging through aquamarine Atlantic waves;
I have been visiting family and celebrating Easter and N's birthday in Sussex;
I have been chugging down the Thames on a boat in the sunshine with a glass of red wine in my hand, good food in my stomach, and sunshine and bunting all around;
I have been walking through Cornish gorse and granite, picking wild garlic, feeling sand between my toes and the warmth of friendship in my soul;
I have watched the Royal Wedding;
I have been packing and unpacking; cleaning and cooking; gardening and studying.
I have been slowly recovering after months of lingering illness; I have laughed, I have cried, I have comforted and cajoled.
But most of all, I have had special times in an April filled with sunshine.
Hope yours was good too.
