The sky turned an unusual shade of orange on Monday afternoon, bringing to mind the French word orage (storm). One of my colleagues joked about the apocalypse, but the whole thing felt unsettling.
The following day was humid at times and chilly at other times. I’ve definitely come down with a winter bug and will take Piriton at bedtime.
Swollen glands and running a slight temperature, so I’m having a few days off from posting. The sister site posts are written in advance, so they will keep on appearing.
Having a little break. Back very soon.
Nearly forgot, life has had many ups and downs recently – but Happy Belated Easter!
The list may appear endless. Grey skies. Rain. Worries over Brexit. Fears about Trump. Low finances from the Christmas period. Waiting to get paid. Etc, etc.
For me, things aren’t quite so bleak. Obviously, I don’t like the weather or the general season, but I have plenty of hope for 2017. I think it will be a good year overall.
Let’s hope I’m right.
On a side note, my blog here at WordPress reaches its eighth birthday this week.
The title says it all, hopefully. I’ve had commitments elsewhere and haven’t found time to blog recently. Dismal weather here in the UK. Still waiting to hear back from an editor regarding my novel and busy working on several foreign languages and piano playing.
Not around for a little while. Back soon.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
