Its a day for counting ones blessings. Yesterday was a very long day spent in the London suburbs. Not the nicest parts of our capital, but the ones that look depressing even in the nicest weather. The ones that feel dirty and dare I say slightly threatening. So today i am back in my country town and enjoying the sun. I have allowed myself to potter, ignoring all the jobs that demand my attention, enjoying the garden.........oh and preparing for Venice on Sunday. Can't wait!
