Woke this morning, thankful, that the caravan had remained secured in its location and that we hadn't been transported to another world during the gale last night :)) Nigel drove back to Colchester and had the screen on his iPhone repaired and was extremely pleased that it only cost him £40 - compared to the £120 - he had been quoted from other companies. When he returned we made our way back to the Carvery for lunch, this time the outlook outside was entirely different with the waves crashing against the seawall and beach. We decided, during lunch, that we would return home this afternoon rather than later this evening as orginally planned.
This winding country lane is my favourite part of the journey home and to the caravan - I love the way the trees bend over the road forming a tunnel. The yellow reflection is the freesia I saved yesterday from the battering it was receiving from the wind and rain.
So I am now home :)) I do so love going away and visiting other places and meeting new people BUT, equally, these days I enjoying coming home more :)) Karmen was pleased to see me and has followed me everywhere - Karl disappeared off to the gym and I soon fell into my old routine of cooking his dinner for him so that it will be ready for when he returns (as he's working this evening) and the first load of washing is in the machine. Time to blog, catch up on the post and emails and then relax for the rest of the evening.
If you have read this post then I would be grateful if you could pray for Yvonne, Kenny and Isaiah - it doesn't matter that you do not know them personally. Yvonne and Kenny's eldest son (age 9) died at the beginning of the month and she has kindly invited me to the Celebration of Malachi's life and then burial service on the 28th June. This morning Yvonne wrote these words on her facebook..
