I have just come up to my desk to get my phone in case Paul rings but I see he has sent a text to say he will be home at 3:15. He is driving half way across the country and yet at 3:15 he will be here.
Sat Nav’s! Amazing! I don’t like using it but feel so happy that Paul does.
I love how my brain hops to another time…
We were on our way to North Wales for the funeral of my beautiful friend.
1st December 2005, we were late, we were lost and I was in a state of extreme stress.
I also realised that Paul who was doing many hundreds of miles in a month at that time was spending more and more time looking for the place he was supposed to be and I was continually worrying about him.
The next day we went to Halfords or some such place and bought a Satellite Navigation System.
And back to the present…
The bright yellow Welsh poppy is flowering all over the garden: I let it self-set because it reminds me of my friend.
Back and forth my mind drifts effortlessly…
Before I came up for my phone I was about to go into the garden and plant up some little pansies before Paul got in.
My friend didn’t like pansies, “they have such silly looking faces” she used to say.
I am smiling at lovely memories of her.
And I have much less worry about Paul travelling and getting stressed.
Thank you Alexa at Trimming the Sails who, for the past 2 years has given us the opportunity to stop and be still in the moment, to record our thoughts and to link up with other Simple Moments from around the world. This is the last month of linking up.
I am sure I will continue with the practice.
