Keep calm…now I know I put my inner peace down somewhere……


Inner peace is rather elusive in the last few days as everything practical that can break has….laptop, car and now the local network mast has broken so there is no mobile phone service. Who needs technology? Well me apparently as I am unable to work without it.

I remain calm and am slowly working my way through it…what helps are warm moments and special friends.

On Saturday the lovely SS and I went down to London with her young family to work together in a church down there. We had a good afternoon and actually got to work side by side (which is what us girls love best) and then SS’s ‘taxi’ husband returned to collect us and we all congregated back at his Mum’s house. A happy and highly entertaining collection of three generations shared dinner and much laughter. The loving peaceful feeling this left us with is still there.

Last night’s pancake creating was productive on the ‘yummy’ front and my farmer friend is great at flipping (I cannot bring myself to say the ‘t’ word). We also got to talk and I have been assured of a ride on his tractor and combine harvester. Farmers are by nature highly practical and very literal I am discovering. Both pieces of farm equipment have a second seat and the seasonal cropping calendar has openings for companionship in Autumn, with a chance in the Spring. All I had to do was be clear in my request and it was sorted!

Now who needs technology with warming happy moments like these….

    Omg Jane, you have been hit by “the snowball of life.” When one thing happens it’s like a snowball rolling downhill. I hope everything comes together soon and you can shake off the flakes.
    Blessings ~ Maxi

      Hello Maxi and thank you…I am not dwelling on the ‘having to move’ bit but rather on the dear little place I have found to move to. I trust that all is meant to be and am dusting down my flexibility. God bless my loved ones and friends. Big hugs to you xxx

    Having lived on a farm.. I can say that it is a wonderful opportunity to see nature at work in the farm fields. The moving of the soil in spring, planting and seeing the first green buds appear against the rich black soil.
    You’ll have a lovely time!
    Many, many hugs,
    Jeannie xxxxxx

      Hiya Jeannie, it is so good to have this to look forward too, it lifts my thoughts from having to move again. Best not to dwell on that and think of harvests and good company instead…biggest hugs to you my lovely friend xxxxx

    Oh Jane,

    What a lovely warm, cosy and optimistic post this is! A combine harvester ride too! Wow!

    I also need technology! It does me many favours. In fact, if there was ever a time to encounter a chronic condition, its definitely now!!! Lol

    Have a lovely day (a snowy one here!) and keep writing on😊

    Love and hugs

    Christine xxxx

    “…I cannot bring myself to say the β€˜t’ word…”

    Well there goes another letter from the alphabet that one can’t utter in polite company. Let me count….hmmm….that pretty much leaves us 18 alphabets.

    I read somewhere that English as spoken now will be dead in 160 years. I wonder if that’s why the Indians have 1442 letters in their alphabet – that’s planning for you.

    Luv and hugz,
    Eric πŸ™‚


I love to hear from you and having different perspectives are what this is all feel free to let me know what you think.....
