Why am I so wordless?

I have tried a several times now, over the last few weeks, to write the words that seem to seep with a strange, crimson elation into my heart, but I can’t adequately describe this. Hence the clumsy metaphor, allusion, my tears.

Anthony and I have finally made a stumbling leap into accepting that he is in the nursing lodge forever and I am home without him forever. This acceptance has brought more joy than I ever thought possible.

No words….

The wedding.

In a few days my first niece, Ashtyn, will be wedded to a Scottish man, Gordon, in a castle in Scotland. My mother arrived there safely and she and Ash have now had two days together. I am so jealous but am comforted by the fact that the newlyweds will be moving back here to Western Australia in December – yeeha!

They are both extremely photogenic.

To Scotland!

Today I am taking my mother up to the airport to fly to Scotland. My beautiful niece is getting married there. Some of you may recall that, having just recovered from a fractured hip, my mother fell off her bicycle and broke her pelvis in two places and her wrist in three. We thought she wouldn’t be able to go to the wedding but she is now almost fully recovered. Bravo, Mother!

Keyboard and wordpress problems now …

I thought I was back on board with computer problems, so I posted a photo of Gutsy9 yesterday, but I don’t think it worked!

Lovely evening reading blogposts, despite glitches. I’m a bit frustrated not be able to comment and/or reply to comments in my usual witty, eloquent way – ha!

Many thanks for the moral + IT support – let’s hope this post works!

I am using my IPad finally!

I am very new at this but oh what fun! Apparently my old laptop has a really dreadful hard drive problem. Tonight I am gleefully figuring out my new toy.

Argh

Nothing is working properly at the moment, computer-wise, but all else is fine/ will catch up as soon as computer is fixed. At the moment, it keeps cutting out.
