I don't often see the dawn but I am glad I was awake at 5 this morning...
A whole day's gardening was just what I needed.
I've been thinking a lot about balance.
Plans changed (I was on Plan C today).
I've got a bill from Vodaphone although I have not been with them for years.
The water was turned off for six hours while I had someone staying.
The president of the most powerful country in the world said there was an airport there in 1775
- the world is madder than ever!
I remind myself that there are swallows and orchids in my life.
It helps me stay sane.
What keeps you sane?
(I am assuming that you are...)
I have tried, and failed, to get a good photograph of the swallows' nest so will link you to this fabulous one.
But perhaps you have your own nest to distract you? I keep thinking they will surely leave today but this morning all six are still in there being fed by what must now be pretty exhausted parents. I think it is too cold. I would stay in a cosy nest with my siblings too....
If I sit on the edge of the bath with the window ajar I am on a level with the swallows' nest and I've been spending more time than I perhaps should watching the SIX baby birds...I think they may leave the nest tomorrow, and I might get some work done!
I also bought a fun scarf.
It's summer after all.
