I'm sure the cry has been going up all over the land (and distant lands too!) "where has Southhamsdarling disappeared?!" Truth be told, you haven't missed me at all, have you?! It's okay, I can take it!
I could say how busy I've been, dashing here, there and everywhere, but I'm afraid it's just the old story of not really being able to come up with anything to write. Well, nothing entertaining, anyway.
I did have a welcome visit from my eldest granddaughter, who is 19, and studying International Relations at Madrid University. Only a long weekend, but it was so lovely to spend some time with her again. It had been eight months since we had last seen each other, so a catch up was well overdue. The thing that made me happy, was that it was her suggestion that she should pop over for that long weekend 😊.
My youngest daughter and her little ones were very excited to see her again, also.
As always happens, the time went by far too quickly, but we had fun and made memories to last until the next time we all meet up.
So, a brief little Post today, just to let you know that I'm still around. I know there are still a lot of people out there that are feeling bitter and disappointed about recent events. I do care what is happening in our world....of course I do, and I admire all these people that get out there and protest and march for what they believe in, but I've learnt over the years to just be kind to as many people as I can and to be always caring and thoughtful to others. Also to respect their opinions. I do think sometimes that these things can go out of the window if we're not careful.
I enjoy debating about politics and I actually participate quite often, as I suspect many others are doing, more so than they have ever done before! But it's just that I refuse to make myself ill over it or get too 'down' about it all. For that road doesn't do anyone any good.
As you read this, you might have a different opinion of course, but we should never forget how fortunate we are that we live in Countries where we have freedom of speech and that we can protest if we want to, without living in fear of our lives.
I wish you all a happy and relaxed weekend, and hope to see you again soon.
