In My Haven

Hello everyone who was worried about my journey home from Sue's. It was a slow process but I had faith in the above to get me to my destination in one piece.
Not an easy journey especially as I have no sense of direction and road closures throws me into a, "where am I going and how am I going to get there". A convoluted route by an extra 3 hours+ but I missed the aquaplaning cars and deep rivers!
Got home just in time to take off one lot of clothes and throw on another to go to the Proms in the Park in Milton Keynes - it was an excellent evening with G4 and others who sang and played a good mixture of classics, opera and shows, with lasers, fireworks and cannons. I also had a thing about the conductor who had such enthusiasm for his music.

I am now late writing this as I have had many calls from well meaning friends who were also worried - Me S & P really didn't know how bad it was out there as we really chilled last week! Did us all good, great to be in your own world!

I had a wonderful time and S & P's well rested and armed with my new blog, need a few days or is that weeks to find my way around but I will get there - never one to give up.

Today I have been like a Chinese laundry, all washed and ironed and put away, cleaned all through, cleansed in body and soul.

Now sitting with a well earned glass of red looking at gleaming surfaces and no cobwebs!

I was so overwhelmed to find I had 5 comments already and I have just started on this wonderful experience of blogging, new friends, new horizons and a big thank you to Sue, her help and her blogging friends.

may we all continue.

Hi Gillie: I'm the lucky Blogwinner of Sue's magazines... thanks for picking my name out of the basket, I knew I could rely on you!! I heard all about the flooding and even saw pics on the Canadian TV news, it looks really drastic. Was N'pton dry when you got home? My mother was born at Duston, anywhere near you? And I have a cousin at Favell Green. My grandfather was employed at Berry Wood (used to be Northamptonshire County Mental Hospital).

Glad you got home safely and not flooded out. I just can't believe some of the pictures I've seen on the news. Even thinking of making up a few sandbags, just in case!

Two really good blogs to visit are Martin Strickland (you can follow the link through my blog). He is a bit cheeky but he does cheer you up on a grey morning!

The other one is called wordimperfect. You will have to google that as she doesn't send messages. Her blog gives a new word every day and you have to guess what it means. A bit like call my bluff. I'm quite addicted and visit it daily.

Glad to see you are getting visitors. It's always nice to get comments!

Good luck with today's word. If you get in the top three, I'll vote for you however unlikely your explanation is!
