new life

First of September is my Mum’s birthday – she would have been 95 yesterday (today if you are north of Nairobi)
It is also celebrated as the start of Spring, south of that place – although the grass is riz & I know where the boidie is (on the branch of the tree above trilling &twittering its joy!)
We also received news of the birth of Luke who is the 20th grand child of my siblings (what is the collective for nephews & nieces?)
My sweetpeas are slow, but show promise, I cycled 15 kms yesterday and reduced my food intake, …. I intend to shed bulk and celebrate my arrival at closer to 60 than 50 in sleek & admired form.
The sun promises to shine, so we have been told in this little slowly decaying outpost in the South Pacific (get away, you depressing note)

There is a great deal to be thankful for – this applies to readers of this blathering blog.
Seize the day – paint your world in joyous colours, embrace your loved ones!!

  1. MickyD, please can you translate kms into old money, we still like our miles over here?!

    Do you have a suitable pair of socks for riding the aforementioned peddled cycle? Do they have to be good and strong, so you can tuck your trousers bottoms into them? I could never afford cycle clips so had to make do with the above.

  2. You see what that nasty decaying piece of mud covered in ferny weeds can do to a human spirit!
    I strongly recommend you swap it for this little piece of clay, equally decaying but doing it in style!
    !5km would be about 8-9 miles?
