'How lucky am I?' is a question I often repeat to myself, and I'm also asked what I do all day by folks who work. This guilt has been assuaged by the discovery of the book, 'How to be Idle', by Tom Hodgkinson. A marvellous read, it's funny, irreverent and provides evidence that we weren't all born to work for other people. I have to share with you the quote of a quote from the book which sums up our style of travel and life very well.
'All day long, no plans,
And I remain at leisure'
Wang Wei (698-759) in reply to Chang Tin.
So we continue to go with the flow, while the weather is fine. We see no need to head for sunnier climes when we have one here. So, business as usual with walking, cycling tours and free swimming. The activity should all go some way to counteract the super-size me mode I embraced while helping Lizzie empty her freezer for their house move. When we arrived here an elderly German lady gave us a jar of home-made blackcurrant jelly, welcomed us to Germany and wished us a happy holiday.
Mike bought toilet paper the other day, 'Happy End' was the brand, in large and bold print on the packaging.
On that note here endeth this blog entry.
