August Bank Holiday then Autumn Beckons
August 24, 2011 § 9 Comments
I spoke to a friend last night and we agreed we were looking forward to the autumn; new academic year; new beginnings. I am looking forward to seeing my children happy in their new classes; to getting down to some hard work after the summer lull (them and me); and to all the possibilities that a long and dark autumn brings, hey ho. A (divorced) old boyfriend contacted me out of the blue a couple of days ago; the Smidgen is returning to our neighbourhood from his long summer sojourn abroad and we will meet; one of my best male friends who is on a mission on my behalf has pledged to introduce me to Long Shot; I am seeing the Kidnap Negotiator in a couple of days. My friend I spoke to last night said that all the significant relationships she had had in her life had begun in the autumn. So who knows? Perhaps now is the time to be upbeat. If only for a week or two!
I am going away for the Bank Holiday weekend for a huge and historic family gathering in a place where my access to the internet will be pretty well non-existent. So it is I have to say I won’t be able to post any blogs till Tuesday when I get home, thus breaking my unbroken daily record (since 2 July) so far, for which apologies.
But I promise to return with stories and observations and rants anew, and please do keep the comments coming meanwhile.
Have a good weekend.
