The going's on......

Love Is...
being a good neighbour.
The going's on in my life, can best be described as a little boring at the moment. But that is just how it is. I wish I could say we were moving on and setting the system a light with the sound of our engine. But unfortunately that is not the case, and will not be the case for a while whlist K is unwell. So I am having to make the best of our time here. The weather for the past two days has been , what can only be described as glorious. We have had two very frosty morings, which have turned into fantastic sunny days. Yesterday I cleaned the boats brass and smoothered a layer of Vaseline over it to stop it tarnishing so quickly. I also got the usual boat jobs done. March usually see's people beginning to move and so yesterday C and R slipped their winter mooring, leaving for their summer cruising. It was sad to see them go, because it has been nice to have some company. No sooner they left, I and I arrived on the towpath, they had come to get some shopping done, before they were moving off to pastures new. A and K arrived later in the afternoon and are stayingg a few days, so we will have a chance to catch up.
Today I walked a long the towpath with the mutt and said good morning to a Kingfisher,  Squirrel, Magpie and the Swans. A long with the sunshine, seems to come good cheer from everyone I met. My jobs today have included painting the mushroom vents on the roof. I have done three of them to cut down on the amount of brass I have to clean. I washed the boat down and spent a good couple of hours chatting to people in the basin. At the moment I have a green curry cooking in the back stove for tonights dinner. We will have that with some rice. So life is a little boring right now, but I am content with my life.
I was saddened to hear the news of the death of Kristian Digby. Kristian presented the TV program To Buy or Not to Buy with Dom Littlewood. At 32 years old his life has been cut short to soon. My thoughts are with his friends and family.

Todays Survey of the Day.
74 year old people are the most what in the population?
Now of course there could have been many answers to this survey, but the answer was Contented.
I am contented with my life right now. I have happiness and the love of a wonderful man. Of course there are things I wish I could change, but it does not stop me from being contented. I am pretty much happy with my life

  1. I always feel that "contented" is a lot more profound that"happy". I am very fortunate to feel very contented at the moment too. It's funny isn't it that everything doesn't have to be right with life for it to still be possible

  2. Hi Jay.

    I agree, I like the word contented much better. Not everything in my life is sweetness and life, but that is things in the past. My life at present is very contented. x
