I am home.
My Love has flown to feather the nest.
The house is so quiet without him......
Well that and the fact that we finally ditched the 22yr old fridge that constantly groaned day and night.
The new fridge is so quiet I keep checking to see if the power has been cut off!
I have been so touched by the kind words and helpful suggestions and multitude of cyber hugs from blog friends and the quiet supportive assurances from friends who have stopped by today. My world is still a beautiful place and I can't tell you how proud I am of that man of mine.
He has stepped up to the plate and once again taken up one of the oldest and hardest professions in this country. Certainly not a man afraid of hard work.
I will also add that his first day it was 39C and I can't imagine what it was in the shed.
Thank you for allowing me a little self-pity and some over-proud indulgences.
