It’s a whole week since I wrote in this diary, so what’s been going on.
Quite a lot has occurred. K and K went away for the weekend and came back with the announcement that they will marry on Thursday 15th July. I am delighted for them and really looking forward to the happy day. Oh happy day.
I have booked my holiday in Skyros in June which was given to me by my children as a 70th birthday present. It is what they call an ‘alternative’ holiday. I will fly to Athens and then go by ferry to the island. Each day I will spend two hours on a writing course and the rest of the time will be my own to swim, write, relax and generally soak in the sunshine. No doubt I will come back looking bronzed and ready for the wedding.
I went to see the film The Road and found it a very moving experience. As I left the cinema a lady who had been sitting two rows in front of me turned and asked “what was that all about”. I could only reply “I suppose it means while there’s life there’s hope.”
