The last post was 1st July (Canada Day) - and now, according to Thomas, the summer holidays are almost over (they have been on holiday for 5 weeks and still have 9 to go so no, they are not almost over - he has an odd way of counting days - I am told he gets it from me).
This month has been odd but then I again I think the month has probably been normal but I have been odd - as Robert pointed out yesterday, if anyone who didn't know me saw me they would think I was perfectly normal (his words) - he however does know me and says my axis is off - not that I am wonky or crooked or anything but that my whole axis has shifted - and he is waiting for it to shift back again (and I so hate to say that he is right - but he is, I am wonky, completely, in a bad place and just waiting to get back into my good place)
Our lovely Mr. Bonkers died this month - it is still really upsetting and only those who have had and loved animals will understand why - it all happened very quickly and left us all feeling shocked - and he was only 5, he lived in an appartment so no risk of being run over etc etc so he should have lived for years and years - but he didn't and we miss him.
Finally I was able to go away with Robert a few times when he had to travel for work - a day in Venice, an overnight in Macerata and the Marche - so beautiful ..........
and another overnight up in Udine - even more beautiful and so many lovely cafes
............ only trouble is now I don't want to go on holiday in August - we are going up to Slovenia and Trieste and right now I want to stay at home - but how do I tell Robert - I needed a holiday, I really did but life/work has slowed down a bit and I have rested - but my axis is off so maybe not wanting to go on holiday is all about me being weird right now.
I haven't been posting but everyday I still do my blogging rounds - all the old faithfuls (look right) and also the new one - ninemorninglines.
