Well we have arrived ! Got V out of the car and pushed her up the slope in her chair to the top promenade . Viewed the eight steep steps up to Library Cottage with some trepidation - decided the only option was a fireman's lift.....ok kidding used the newly installed hand rail - shoulder firmly under V's bum and up we went .V now well and truly out of her comfort zone and I could feel Heady's wine hour rapidly approaching . Still things gradually calmed down I think it is the vast expanse of open water which is soothing .
Bedtime was again stressful as nothing was in its usual place and even I began to feel uncomfortable as I forgot the usual order things we do things . But V is now sound asleep , I can hear her gentle actually not so gentle snores reverberating through the baby alarm .
I am now tucked up in bed in the attic room with the windows open listening to the sounds of the waves as they surge and retreat ,surge and retreat on the shingle beach . The sound is so difficult to describe yet it is so familiar and I know that I shall read maybe two pages of my book before I am lulled to sleep by the incessant rhythm of the sea . What bliss- it makes all the effort worthwhile .Tomorrow ...well lets see what tomorrow brings .
