One of the things I am grateful for is that my day-job gives me opportunities, from time to time, to travel abroad, and over the last couple of years I've enjoyed visits to Paris, Cologne, the Somme, Brittany and Normandy among other places. On a daily basis, though, I am also blessed with a really beautiful commute to work. After yesterday's downpour (the farmers I'm sure are happy, even if many others aren't!) it was so lovely this morning to see the handkerchief tree coming into bud, along with the bright new green shoots, blossom and leaves bursting out along the hedgerows and trees all around, the birds singing in the sunshine ... gorgeous! I've loaded some pics on my Travel page - the High Weald in Spring is truly glorious.
Lifelong bookworm, love writing too. Have been a theatrical agent and reflexologist among other things, attitude to life summed up by Walt Whitman's MIRACLES.
