Not in any particular order

For some time now, Poppy has been suggesting that she isn’t getting her fair share on this blog. So she has moved to her own Facebook page – if you want to go through the catflap, she’ll welcome you there at Poppy Chillingworth.

We went last night to Jane Eyre at Perth Theatre – well worth a visit. Co-incidentally, one of the stars was Beth from No 1 taking part in ‘her first professional engagement’ Strangely, her biog in the programme failed to mention how much she owes to her experience as a player in the Blogstead soap opera.

And finally … we marked this week five years since our arrival here. That’s both a short time and a long time, if you know what I mean. What seems strangest in retrospect is the fact that it never really occurred to me that it wouldn’t work out. Must be something vocational about that, I suppose.

  1. ‘A short time and a long time’ well, it sounds familiar. In English it makes no sense at all, but to a Celt it makes a lot of sense. Also, I was interested in your statement that ‘it had not occurred to you that it would not work out.’ Born in North Country England in a Gaelic speaking home my first visit to Eire was just at the end of the War, where I felt strangely ‘at home.’ Similarly, when I came to live in Scotland many years later, I just knew it was home and, as Julian of Norwich would say, ‘All will be well.’ And it is.
