A beautiful Happy Easter to all,
I have been blessed to spend this summer in South Africa. As the weather turns towards Autumn, the days are still balmy and warm enough to spend time on the beach, lunches on the captivating wine farms though the evenings a little crisper than they were a few weeks ago. It is the natural light that is the real princess here, natural light and space.
Been doing a bit of DIY at the same time. Finally, after nearly eight years, the slither at the back of the house has been paved. Technically not DIY since I had little to do with it, other than the rudeness from my neighbour at the back. All my other neighbours are wonderful and we live in a very happy corner of the estate.
With thoughts turning to Spring, being able to meet a friend and soon all the shops will be open, some, like me, may still be faced with no clear plans. Lockdown has hit the tourism industry really, really hard and the pain of watching planes parked on runways, small pensions close, restaurants flounder and fold under the protracted rules, I am also waiting for visitors to return, and realistically this is going to take some time.
With so many redundant and that is all ages, the chances of getting work when one is over sixty is all that more difficult. The options are a little limited, but not impossible. It’s a question of rewiring if need be.
So the days are still slow, and the mind always thinking of many things to do.
Have a wonderful April, be rejuvenated and positive.
Eat all the Easter eggs you want.
