Sometimes this is just the right thing to hear......

Gavin Bryars...Jesus' blood never failed me yet.........look it up on youtube.

I love Tom Waits and the one time I saw him live in London I felt like a proper grown up.
I had driven from my midlands town, on a Friday night, in traffic, when I hadn't been driving for all that long....I think it was late 70's early 80's, but it was worth it to see him on stage. At that time I didn't know anyone in London and had to drive back that same night. I sometimes think that if the fates had thrown me a different way that night then I would not be where I am today.......but hey..they do what they do ...and it was a really great concert and a fabulous memory.

What 'different way' would you have liked to have come your way? I'm sure we all think a bit that way about parts of our lives.

I used to have an adventurous spirit. That was another 'me'. This 'me's' tired and bad-natured and can easily upset people (though never my grandchildren, they are my shining lights). It's the grown-ups who irritate me!

Cro...it is dangerous country to start thinking about 'what if' I think
Nana...Sorry you are feeling tired Nana...it seems to come with being a Nana!

Sunday.....

Spending an hour at an allotment open day in the sunshine. A toasted croissant slathered in butter for breakfast. Drying washing on a line...
