"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Celebration time!

This morning, I finally finished my counselling portfolio, just in time to hand it in tomorrow. It's typed, organised, ordered, filed, checked - everything that can be done to it has been done. Now it's in the lap of the gods, or at least of CTI (Counselling Training Initiatives).
I was so pleased I rang Keith, who was busy being businesslike in the shop.
So then I rang Elder Daughter - no answer.
Younger Daughter then - no answer.
Elder Son. He did answer but couldn't talk for long as he was just about to take his family out for the day.
Oh well, not to worry - I just told myself how pleased I was with me.
Meanwhile, tomorrow, after the last session of my course in the morning, we are off on our travels. It's nearly two years since our last trip and this time we are driving through France and into Italy. Faithful laptop is coming with me, as always, so, depending on the availability of wi-fi, I may be able to post once or twice. And yes, Dale, I shall take lots of photos. :)
So all I need to do now is a crash course in Italian. Well, if you know French and have done 'O' level Latin, how hard can it be?
Io capisco l'Italiano un poco - innit! Ciao.

  4. Sorry, YP we're at the foot of the Alps at present before going into Italy and Keith has just refused to pop over to the Pyrenees. How unreasonable can he get!!!;)
