Today I missed ..being with John , being in Emerald, and felt sad being away from Jacob and Florence , and of course ,Rosie ( that is beyond sad – but you already know that ) .
So I met a dear friend for coffee and then took myself off to The Isis . I cleaned Rosie’s plaque ,and then lay down on my back ,with my head resting right next to it and took a selfie..then another selfie and then another .It’s not easy with the sun beaming right into your face ,holding your arms upwards and then clicking ,all the while not being able to see a dam thing and being watched by five Japanese tourists .But I didn’t care .I love Rosie ,and the rest of my family so much , I don’t care what i look like or ,in situations like that , what people think. I even made myself laugh .
Our holiday was fabulous .I think that is the longest John and I have been away together since Jacob was born .Neither of us are very good at doing nothing ,so we did loads in the most beautiful surroundings . We walked ( and walked and walked ) over cliffs, we played boules , swam ( me ) , cycled ( John ) , , we saw snakes – except mine was a slow-worm and John’s an Adder , we barbecued every night ,we had sundowners watching the sun go down over the sea , we played scrabble , we put the awning up in a force ten gale , we played draughts , we did the the crossword ( or part of it ) everyday and we read . Emerald started at the turn of a key and apart from the fact the alarm went off every time we opened the driver’s door , I don’t thnk we pissed the other campers off to much.
