Yesterday

was a pretty good day all things considered....a dear friend asked me to be her date at the Simon and Garfunkel concert. She said she realised she would have to put up with me singing and generally being the dag I am. Then I had a small win at work - something that I thought was going to go pear shaped didn't turn out too badly....then I got the phone call from the School...you've won the Music Raffle....no school fees for next term....how about that? Rushed home to cook tea for my nearest and dearest and then headed off to Boondall with Karen to see the iconic duo. Why did I ever think I would sing? All I did was cry - great blubbering idiot that I am. So lovely to be there and trip back to my youth where all was peace love and happiness - well, when you listened to Simon and Garfunkel. We did sing in the end - despite a cranky puss sitting next to me who claimed she hadn't paid to listen to all of us sing - get a life - feel the peace - ohmmmmm - feelin groovy.....

Hello Toots

How is the lsl? I have thought about you this week, imagining what a wonderful feeling it must be to be at the beginning. I hope you have managed to switch off and do a turbo wind-down so you can enjoy every moment.

Have you been wandering aimlessly, cooking slowly, decluttering??? All sounds very rewarding...
