I'm off for a few days

I feel the need for a bit of peace and quiet - so I am taking myself off beside the sea for a few days.

Back soon.

Horizon, who lives in a lovely part of Scotland, kindly nominated me for this award. So I have great pleasure in passing it on to two other bloggers, whose writing I enjoy tremendously.

The Other Val of Val Has Her Say lives in another contintent but we share so many similarities - apart from the obvious one of our name. We are both librarians (though she is now happily retired and is my pathfinder); we are of similar age; we have Husbands Who Cook; and are both fascinated by Japanese gardens and culture; enjoy reading novels about India. And I just wish we lived closer and could enjoy a good chat over a cup of tea!

Vishwa lives in India, and through A Walk in the Drizzle I've watched him become a parent, and learned much from his eloquent writing. Its lovely to share his everyday and spiritual life in a small way.

I am settling again after the upheaval and fun of the wedding. I feel like an old house that has been shaken by a small earthquake, and is shaking off the dust and sending down roots again.
I think I need peace and quiet in my daily life for a while. But I wont get it! Never mind, life is lovely in Dorset - despite the rain today and the crappy job!

Wedding bells

The weather held and it was a glorious day with not a cloud in the sky. The whole weekend was wonderful, but here is one photograph to be going on with - it may be a while before I catch up. And yes, I managed to ring rounds for a few minutes before the ceremony!

Isn't she the most beautiful bride you ever saw? But then I am biased!

Life is just a bowl of....broad beans?

See my latest post over at ArkSanctum

My eldest daughter's wedding is on Saturday 11th August, here in Dorset - so I am a little bit preoccupied right now. Though I am still trying to keep up with my blog reading (I hate to miss anything! And its so relaxing) and trying to keep cheerful in the new crappy job.
