Today the first day of the Bank Holiday Weekend; Whitsun when we celebrate the ascension of Jesus into heaven six weeks after his crucifixion at Easter. While I don’t profess to adhere to any particular religion, while this one offers me a day’s holiday from work I will enjoy it!
Also, it marks two months to when I go to Brazil, not to partake in the World Cup shenanigans but to visit my beloved daughter and partner.
Perhaps it is worth mentioning it while celebrating they are both recovering from their accident 4 months ago today!
I do have much to embrace but I do find this continued hair loss less enchanting. I am increasingly irritated by the cliche much banded ‘at least its not life threatening’ … it ain’t for sure … but is not a pretty sight and being inexplicable makes it worse!
On a lighter note, yesterday I celebrated 2 years as a blogger! This is no mean achievement especially as I never expected it to last. So much so I grabbed a silly name out of the air, so in the event of failure I could duck out and know one would know!.
So while I am not sure what I am sharing today except that I am particularly grateful and in debt to those who have supported,visited, commented and followed.
I send you many good wishes for this weekend and your celebrations
From Nela AKA Aitch, Hells, Helly, call me what you will but never too late for Tea!
