There's been a storm raging around my ordinary life.
I walked a bit. Looked after my grandchildren for a week or so. Lead some fine walks in Northumberland, both along the beautiful coast and inland, but somehow missed seeing my eldest son during his lightning fast visit from Canada. Helped prepare my daughter's house for letting.
Then, finally, at the beginning of this week, waved goodbye to her, my son-in-law and my small grandchildren as they set off for their new life in Shanghai.......................
.......so I've been learning to dance in the rain.
