Today is a grey, rainy but calm, relaxed day, no spasms warning me that I need to be got out of bed quickly which is nice.
Richie fed me delicious raspberries and a small banana; they remind me of the small bananas in Trinidad.
There was a tree outside my bedroom window; we called them bird bananas because the birds always got there first when they were ripe.
Every time I would find the tree covered in birds and would have to run fast to get any as the birds could eat quickly.
Before you knew it all the fruit was eaten and we would all wait for the next time, sweet memories of Trinidad
Still find it amazing that we had banana, coconut trees and pineapple in our garden there, we had family as well as friends who had mango & avocado trees.
We knew people who had cashew nuts, cocoa pods, people who fished regularly; we had chickens and grew some vegetables like pumpkin, spinach, tomatoes, aubergines and herbs.
I remember helping bringing in the fishing net at the beach, joining in with other children and thoroughly enjoying myself.
Also remember helping friends collecting their lobster pots, at their large families beach house, the lobster curry for lunch was delicious, beautiful memories pleasant on a rainy day like today.
