I will be 48, I can hardly believe it! It's uplifting to still be sane ish and have my body still doing what I request of it and slightly depressing to be looking older and more tired.
Bah! I am alive

I have had a weird month with some fab highlights, spending time with great new friends and time with my beloved Lou, who has been my friend for decades.

 Sad stuff with my mum's decline.

 Good stuff because I have seen my beautiful son and scary stuff when I hear of his exploits.

Weird stuff with my stepson, it's quite frankly all batshit crazy over there, always.

Good and bad stuff with work,  very sad stuff with a death. Properly shaken me up stuff.

Odd stuff as my youngest daughter has been away for 3 weeks, most peculiar to be without her.

Good stuff as my older daughter is flying back from Germany to spend my birthday with me.

Exciting stuff with a big change in work/life balance. Cryptic non?

Feeling guilty for being a bad friend stuff as wanting to text Note Bene to tell him Glasgow City Council were flying the Palestinian flag and guilt as I don't have his number any more.

Missing Libs stuff, been far too long, missus, we need to see you and the mister.

I shall be back soon, I have a blog and I miss writing in it. I am going to try and blog more often, I miss you.
