It's a typical November day here - chilly, misty, a hint of watery sunshine every now and again. The trees have shed most of their leaves; it only needs a few days of wind for the rest to drop, but the air is very still. I've had one of those ordinary days, catching up on chores, a bit of shopping, a short walk - but it's been good and I am so thankful for 'ordinary'.
I don't know where the time is going at the moment....! My last few posts were auto-posted as I've been in London for a few days giving my daughter some support. Pleased to report that mum, dad and baby are all well and thriving. I had forgotten just how much time and space a tiny baby commands, but she is adorable and getting less tiny by the day - 2.2 kg now (that's 4 lbs 13 oz). I find I spend a lot of time just gazing at her.... even though my role was meant to be cooking, washing and generally keeping the home fires burning. I did plenty of that, actually.
Arrived home to find my internet connection was up the spout and I've spent two days trying to figure it out. My ISP has tinkered about with the service to increase the broadband speed - and kindly sent me an email with an incorrect user-name to re-establish my connection. Grrr. Anyway, eventually got it sorted, to my relief. I really hate being without it. And that problem solved seems finally to have allowed me to relax, after quite a tense few weeks. So I'm really enjoying my weekend. I might even find time to visit a few blogs again, which I have sadly neglected to do. Hope you have a lovely weekend too.
PS: My title reminded me of a punctuation puzzle my high school English teacher once gave us to do:
time flies you cannot they pass much too quickly
