Life Has Many Bright Spots.
Since Monday we have had rain all day everyday, Monday night the wind got up and howled all night, this kept us awake for a great part of the night.
The rain also started during the night and only seems to have stopped today; right now the sun is trying to break through the cloud cover which is like a thick grey lid over the city.
So not exactly sunshine right now, but it is brighter than the last couple of days and that is really nice.
The prospect of sunshine is really giving me a big boost this morning; it is great seeing tiny patches of blue sky appearing as cloud rolls away.
Hope that the weather is pleasant this coming Saturday when my cousin Katrin comes to visit us on her way home to France after a family reunion in Germany this week.
Brilliant seeing Katrin on Saturday, really looking forward to seeing her again, she is my favourite cousin.
Next week our friends Gareth and Paul will be in Amsterdam for 10 days, they will stay with us for three days which is really good, looking forward to seeing them.
We are going to have a small party on Friday, 17 September from 18.00 to 23.00, really looking forward to this.
Richie is going to make some tasty treats such as quiches, salads, hummus, fruit salad, cakes and homemade crisps.
Living in the here and now of a brighter Thursday and looking forward to visits from good friends.
Life has many bright spots for me despite my disability and pain and I enjoy them all to the full.
