Awake very early most days, my life it seems is slowly resuming. Old friends arrive, shopping needs to be done, there are services to plan, meetings to attend.
I have taken up old habits in the very early morning which keeps me well informed about what's happening in the world as filtered through the radio news programs. Drinking a hot Horlicks at an ungodly hour and listening is becoming part of my routine.
I also watched the programmes on the TV last night discussing the Scottish dilemma and I find myself not wanting to be divorced from a lovely country I have always enjoyed visiting....whilst of course I would defend their right to that decision completely.
It's a purely personal emotional response but I do hope they don't leave us...
Here in Cornwall now it's not as easy to get there as it was when I lived in the north. The last time was on a cruise around the British Isles!
As everything in my life has changed, is changing, will change it's a minor quibble in the greater scheme of things but I hope we can find a way of staying together happily....and if that means making some constitutional changes then so be it.... I really do think we are better together.
