AND FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

I have been a bad blogger of the absent-without-leave kind. The trouble is...I’m still not sure how it happened.
The academic year ended, in the Smith-family semi we were all bustling about getting under each other’s feet and being busy, busy, busy and I still found time to blog. Then we had to put a box of this-year’s-important-stuff into the loft, trouble was you can’t sit on a loft hatch to make it close because gravity is a bit unforgiving in that direction.
We had no choice but to do something.
There were lies and lives and ghosts of things we were up there–along with the regular family skeletons.
and tidying up the remains of jelly sweets from when sleepovers in the loft had been one of the absolutely everythingest experiences on the planet (not for me, personally, you understand.)
Dust, crap and catharsis later we had contractors in to re-board the whole thing and we have a huge space at the top of the ladder. There’s even enough room to have a room up there ;)
RIGHT NOW… I AM WRITING.
During this summer, I hope you have found some days where the weather made you smile rather than look for shade or shelter. I hope you had enough time to think, plan, write, or to find a different way to wallow in words.
This summer, it rained when I was bar-b-qing, on my walks, when I was in the pool and at the festival–to the extent that I was up to the tops of my trainers in mud. However, I’ve been basking in the Olympic glow, I like to think of it as the summer of rain, rainbows… and shades of grey.
HAVE YOU HAD FUN THIS SUMMER?
