Glow in the dark roses?
Posted Oct 24, 2012
I've just been offered these by online florists.
Look away if you have any taste whatsoever.
Mind you, I seriously thought 'I wonder if they deliver to Spain?' then they could go onto my husband's grave. I say grave but really it's a sort of walled cemetery. A niche. Dia de los muertos is coming up and I shall not be there to clean and provide fresh flowers. I think K would have appreciated the black humour of having eery roses.

I've been sitting here, next to an open window (yes folks it is summer, sort of, even at this height) and instead of the gentle background of birdsong, and rustling trees - all I can hear is a constant sound of shotguns - further away across the moors.
To begin with, I just blanked it out, thinking nothing of it. Shotguns are common here, either to deal with foxes, or to use for clay pigeon shooting. But today is the first time ever when I realise what is going on. Hundreds of birds are being shot in the name of 'sport'.
I feel edgy. There must be a shot at least once every five seconds and it's been going on for over an hour. Some sport eh?

Quizaz, Quizaz, Quizaz.... is a Spanish song sung in English by my childhood idol/role model, Doris Day.
I always thought that her famous version of Que Sera, Sera would be one to accompany to my desert island, as it is so much the sound of my childhood, and I still love it as it brings back so many memories. But now, I bring you 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps.

At least for the next twelve or so hours. I am flying home today and still have to do a few bits and pieces of real life stuff.
I'd have liked to have been able to spend the day working with the tech team who are working away on behalf of the community.
If you are a volunteer helping fix up Pliny - many thanks!
see you all soon

Someone asked me a question about something some time ago and I can't remember who it was, nor can I find the question to answer it.
If it was any of you, please give me a kick and ask me again. I do know it was to do with visiting somewhere, and a potential Guide Entry.
If you know who it was, point me in their direction.
If I have been ignoring you - I am sorry!
