U Turn

u turn

This year, life has not been kind to me.   There have been a variety  of reasons, and most of them either hurt me deeply, or annoyed me greatly!

Over the last couple of weeks, things have taken a very big U Turn.  Not only has Alice Alice been made roadworthy again and I once more have the freedom of the open road! (although I am still trying to get my money back on her via my solicitor), but even if that fails (my Solicitor is doing a credit check on the guy who sold her to me, before we decide on any further action), at least I have a Motorhome I can use!

But a friend convinced me to join Match … to be honest I didnt hold out much hope, but I was surprised when I met a lovely friend and then this weekend, met up with a woman from Eastbourne, who I chatted to and who came up to Edinburgh for the Festival.

To say we hit it off is an understatement.  I knew from our texts and phonecalls that we would get on and I was really excited about meeting her on Friday for a coffee … the coffee “date” lasted for hours and we arranged to meet yesterday.

We had a great day, she really makes me laugh, and puts me in my place!.. last night she very kindly treated me and her friend who she travelled up with, to a meal at The Dome in Edinburgh.   By coincidence two of my great friends were also in Edinburgh and met us at The Dome … and it was a night full of laughter!

She heads back down home today, but we have arranged that she will come back up next week for a few days and I am really looking forward to seeing her… we just get on so well, and at last I am smiling again …. this is my new beginning … and Im excited to see where it might lead.

Here is to my tomorrows yet to come!

The sweetest thing..

Two packs of Revels and a wonderful woman… a lovely evening in beautiful company… and I’m lucky enough to have her company again tomorrow.

A sad day

Today is a sad day.  Today we said goodbye to a lady I didn’t know, but  who influenced my life through her music.

Aretha Franklin was the woman who made me fall in love with music, every song she sung lit up my heart just a wee bit more.

Today, I will play some of her songs… in her memory … in my sorrow for a woman who I didn’t know

You can read all about her life here

Good news!

Sprout giving Duffy a cuddle!

I had my wee boy Duffy back at Vetrica again today …. that is the second time they have seen him since the horrific bill from Inglis (Vetrica are my usual vets) … Bob is delighted with his progress and said he no longer has to be caged (yeahh!! no more litter tray stinking my bedroom out!) … and that I can now allow him to have a room to wander about in.

I brought him home, making sure the doors were closed to the living room (and then access to the kitchen and the outdoors!) … let him out and Sprout took a running leap at the living room door… Duffy scampered away after her (with a dodgy limp just like me!) … and legged it outside … he is now hiding in bushes and won’t come in.

Stupid cat!… but I am glad he is on the mend … he is my “wee man”… now to try to get him back in … this will be fun!

Love doesn’t hurt
