Journal – The Beginning of Spring


Being engrossed in Lindsey Hislum’s biography of Marie Colvin.

Canned peaches. And good strong Italian black coffee, lots of.

The car breaking down several times.  Me breaking down several times.

Feeling inadequate and useless.

Indulging in BBC iplayer for The Great British Sewing Bee and Race Across the World.

Tears of relief when my boy made the British Junior Team.

A cold like no other, forcing me to bed for two days and lasting three weeks.

All the birthdays…….including the big ones.


Photo boothing with my boy.

Feeling grateful for libraries, good coffee, moments with old friends and the feeling of sun on my skin.
