... I’m looking forward to a funeral next week. An old family friend (who is like an uncle really) sadly died of a massive heart attack. He was a truly amazing human being – the most warm & generous person I’ve ever met.He adopted kids but never let them feel they weren’t his. Its is only since he died that i realise – none of his kids were his biologically.
Kids (and adults) who were depressed or thrown away found a warm welcome in his kitchen. He really listened & wasn’t too egotistical to let anyone teach him something. Aged 7 i taught him how to prepare squid. He let me tell him what to do & believed i knew how to do it. No one had ever treated me like that before.
During the big storm of 1988 I headed over to his place because i’d rather be at their place. Trees were falling & the electricity was out londonwide but i walked all the way to neasden. I knew i’d be warm there.
So so many people (including myself) are incredibly sad he’s gone… journeys from far & wide are happening to get to his funeral. From France, El Salvador, the us & maybe even Iran and Tunisia.
And that is what i’m looking forward to. The gathering. There’ll be people there i haven’t seen in decades… and people i’ve only ever heard about in his stories.Very bittersweet.

I’m going on my first hen weekend in a couple of weeks time.
We’re going down to Devon/Dorset border area to a large house that sleeps 12 and then on the Saturday we’re booked into the River Cottage to do a whole day preserving course (apparently with the lady that wrote the River Cottage handbook on preserving).
So a long weekend away for me with hubby taking time off to look after Isaac. Will be interesting for both of us. :) 3 months ago

that can never be closed because I’ve gone and worded it as an imperative rather than a goal with a state that can be understood as the goal’s natural and definite end. I’m marking it as done because I’ve got it through my skull that this is an important thing I need to do and I’ve learned how to do it. 4 months ago

Looking forward going to Seychelles for 3 days next week (that is if my leave will be approved).
Also looking forward to Ramadan, because food won’t be available to order till sunset, so I won’t be able to indulge in all those unhealthy foods and I have plans to eat healthier and do more sports. Hopefully that 4 weeks will be enough to get used to it and establish a healthier lifestyle. Also we will only work 6 hours a day so I will have some more time for myself and housework which I’ve been ignoring lately. 5 months ago
