I slept in, I had a great sleep [conscience must be clear then!]. I had two lovely talks with my cousin Deirdre, and one previous with cousin Trish, then presents to open, emails and phone calls and even a tweet on twitter.com [I'm southernlight]. Dougal and I went out for dinner at Edgewater, and it was the perfect summer evening.

But among it all, for some reason on this very day, I learnt that just a couple of weeks ago a very close friend had an operation that is going to take some recovering from, and that another just lost his wife whom he'd nursed for years. It was all a strong message to me of the fragility of our lives! In fact I'm becoming quite adept at all this sort of thing, but I'm getting too much practice!

Happy belated birthday Donald! I'm sorry I missed the actual day, but this week has been a bit hectic and I have a lot to think about at present.

Stay well,
