Single Sunday

Just a quick post for this morning.

Mute Swan in the mist.


I've a mixed week coming up. 
Jim had an upset stomach last night, so not a good start to the day when I got up. 
Monday, myself and Trevor are out for a trip to Pitsford. 
Tuesday I have a funeral; my young niece died just before Christmas, and finally we can all say our last goodbyes.
And Thursday, a meeting with Dawn, from The Parks Trust, at my local lake, Caldecotte.


Enjoy your day, wherever and whatever you are doing.


  1. So sorry to hear about your niece, my condolences.

  2. More good than bad....counting Jim about 50%/50%.
    Good luck, I detest funerals. Upset me for weeks.
