Lately I have been sleeping with the blind open so I can see the stars at night.
This morning, as I opened my eyes, I could see something stuck to the condensation on the glass.
A little white feather.
Probably left by the collared doves that coo-coo on my chimney pot in the morning.
A little gift to make me smile.
Today is my Brother and Sister's birthday.
I sent them texts of greetings and kisses.
My head has been full of memories of silly childhood games and funny little coded phrases that only mean something to us. They've been in my life for 42 years and they still make me smile.
Happy Birthday Nicholas & Zoë
