We've just arrived home from a weekend on the boat having had an eight-hour sail in quite a rough sea yesterday taking the boat from Plymouth to Falmouth. It was a long trip home today - train to Truro, change, and another to Plymouth, taxi to the Barbican, water-bus to Turnchapel, then a walk to pick up the car from the Marina in order to drive back to Cardiff. Both of us are feeling tired and I was feeling a bit down as it feels like the end of a holiday leaving our watery weekend home. It's most probably just due to tiredness and the gloomy weather.
I got straight on to my laptop to see what you've all been up to and how you are. I've been a bit worried about a couple of you as I know things aren't going your way and that makes me very sad.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that Gwyn had written a Poem just for me and had posted it up on the blog. THANK YOU SO MUCH GWYN! You can't imagine how much it really cheered me up and how very honoured and humbled I feel to have a poem of my own.
My husband (Martin by the way) thinks you're a very clever lady - as do I - he loved your poem and said you'd picked up on my personality and described me to a T. I don't know how you do it Gwyn - but THANK YOU.
I've posted up a photo taken early yesterday morning. I'm sad you don't have so much energy - but you more than make up for it with your creative talents and kindess which brings a cheer to us all.
