I didn’t intend to take part in this week’s photo challenge (I’d rather be…). As I spend some time each year away from loved ones, I make a rule not to wish I was anywhere else other than where I am. It’s a confidence trick I play on myself, a bit like when I was a youngster and used to set the bedside alarm clock a few minutes earlier than it was to try to persuade myself I needed to get up as soon as the alarm went off. It didn’t always work then, and it doesn’t now.
Tonight, Mother and I were supposed to be going to my sister’s for one of her excellent curries, but it’s been snowed off as a precaution against the mini beast from the East. Meanwhile, my sweetheart, shown here in silhouette against the mural, is enjoying St. Patrick’s Day, Mississippi-style. He has his own WordPress blog now, so you can click here to take a peep at what I’m missing out on.
Now, if only my sister had a blog with a picture of her curry on, you could see what else I’m missing!
Wishing you a happy St. Patrick’s Day, wherever you happen to be!
