Autumn and a lovely visit
Autumn is well and truly here, since yesterday it is grey, total cloud cover over the city.
It has been raining also since yesterday, and it is considerably cooler, so much so that I have the duvet again instead of the fleece blankets.
This morning I noticed it quite abit as being cool seems to have woken me up too early, somehow I managed to doze off again.
No wonder that I was in so much pain yesterday, it is the weather change, always find it very hard to make the adjustment.
Will write only a quick post now as my favourite cousin Katrin is visiting me very soon, she lives in France.
She will be here at 12 noon and is visiting until 5 when she goes back to Germany where she is visiting her brothers.
Her mother auntie Lilo sadly died in February, she would have been 102 this december, Lilo was quite a woman.
Remember staying with them when I was 15 and being astonished that she was already 60, I recall that it was wonderful how energetic she was.
A very dynamic woman, Katrin is the same, I have adored her since we met when I was 4 on one of our visits from Trinidad.
She became my role model right away, she made her prescence known, she was just 6 at the time.
A very independent girl, in the first minutes that I knew her she took me out of the garden without the grown ups noticing.
We sneaked across the road and had a terrific game in a field of poppies, a liberating experience for me.
And one I have never forgotten, going to get ready for her so will post this now, maybe update it after her visit.
Maybe until later, I am very excited at Katrin's visit.
