Dear Bloggy Friends
I like to think of this Blog being written 'at a gentle pace' - in other words, it's not going to contain any political rants, or complaints about anything and everything. That sort of thing seems to be all over social media these days. People who think it's right to bring others down from the comfort, and often anonymity, of their own homes. I'm hoping that you will read this and dwell on all the good and wonderful things that life has to offer. Quite often, as we know, it's the simple things that can bring us the greatest happiness - our family, our friendships, walking, having a relaxed, leisurely lunch, to name but a few.
So here we are in October. Autumn, the Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness, as written by the English Romantic Poet, John Keats, in his poem "To Autumn". Don't you just love those words?! It captures Autumn perfectly for me. Talking of Autumn, am I in the Autumn of my life? Being in my 70th year, (although I haven't actually had my 70th birthday yet!) I really think I might be. Eeeek! How on earth did that happen. Perhaps that's why I'm enjoying my life so much at the moment and truly appreciating the beauty that is all around us. Here are a couple of photos taken in my garden at Autumn.
Well, this is the first post I've written in almost a year, and I think I'm going to enjoy coming back to it again. I'll finish by posting a photo with my new Mini Cooper S. I love it! I've always enjoyed driving, but now it's a real joy.
'Bye for now and I'll try not to leave it so long until my next Post 😊
