I got up this morning half an hour before I went to bed, in a real rush. (No change there then!) Forum birthday card to post (late as usual!) and some Fat-pages to finish -but no time, had to get off to work. Rushed off down the road to post said birthday Card, only to find I'd left it behind! So, a quick U turn and back again to get it, moaning all the time about "Where's all my petrol gone, I'm running on air!" as I listened to Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince. Anyway, at least the card caught this morning's post. Arrived at work, no workmen today. The whole place is being renovated so three quarters of it has been sealed off. (The bit that's left is still three times bigger than my little bungalow!) After saying hi to the cats and puppies (dogs now, they're so big!) I ventured up-stairs up-stairs... (as there's two lots) and gazed out of the bedroom window. Wow...the sea was as calm as a mill pond. Beautiful. There wasn't a ripple to be seen. I quickly whizzed round and did all the things I had to do and then took the puppies down on the beach...it's hard to believe it was raining and snowing last week. There was a little breeze, a bit of mist around the Island, the sound of the Terns and the Oyster Catchers waiting for the tide to go out and the waves rippling further out to sea where the sandbank was just beginning to show. The puppies foraged on the beach looking for shells to chew and crabs to chase and as the sun reflected off the calm sea I thought...what a beautiful day!
