21 October 2010

its been a little bit of a wet week here and I have gotten caught out in the wind 
and rain more than once...
thus the late night searching....
time for a new rain coat. 
This site (Rainfrog) made me smile--- orders almost in the mail- a wee early birthday present for myself I was thinking. You see my old one is from ahum..cough..12 years ago,
 it has made it through treks in China and Laos, to Pai (Thailand) and Perugia, Pike street walks in Seattle to Brighton strolls by the then still standing Palace Pier. Meeting he Mr. 
Pregnancy days when it was all new- waddling through the wet lanes with a big belly and the quiet excitement of the unknown future ...as a mother! To sheltering one, then another, then another wee one tucked snug in a baby bjorn as rains fell (which was especially often) when we lived in England. 
Now days though my raincoat is no longer resistant and the time has come to let it go- memories and all.   
Am tempted by this one but am open to any suggestions - am on the look out.

Blue skies and the finding of new friends

Two of life's simplest delights.

My middle child, 
she -with- curls
found a new friend today, 
sometimes it can happen in a moment!
Was heart warming to witness.
 I was lucky enough this week to catch a view of a wondrous sky, made me wish I possessed the words of a poet, would have certainly written a poem. The sight had the pleasing affect of making me feel caught up in some vast net, like a small fish, the magic of something larger (a nice feeling after an especially exhausting week).

Hope your weekend has been a little restorative.
