"July She Will Fly"

"April come she will 
When streams are ripe
And full of rain
May, she will stay 
Resting in my arms again
June, she'll change her tune 
In restless moons she'll prowl the night
July, she will fly
And give no warning of her flight
August fly die she must
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold
September I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old"

- lyrics by Simon and Garfunkel

I've been rather silent on the blogging front recently both posting and commenting. Initially major, major problems with my computer kept me away. From working at snail's pace to the email programme totally disappearing the machine annoyed and thwarted me throughout June, to the extent that I was almost "prowling the night". Then a week's holiday, during which time sadly the computer did not miraculously come to rights in my absence, so I am now borrowing himself's laptop which is not as user friendly and does not have access to my photos. On a happier note the holiday bought us some welcome sunshine, plenty of time for reading and pottering, good food and wine in a little village in Normandy.

I'm not planning to disappear altogether but just in case here is warning of a possible "flight"! Blog posting may well be sporadic for some time. Hopefully I can get to grips with this computer's erratic keyboard though, so I will soon be visiting and commenting over at my favourite haunts.


  1. Good luck. Glad the weather was ok in Normandy.

  2. I thought you must be away on holiday, Anna, sorry that there was more to your absence in the shape of gremlins at play. Your holiday sounds wonderful though. Hope you can get to grips with the laptop soon.

  3. Sorry to hear you've had problems, hopefully they will be sorted soon and then we can hear about your super holiday in Normandy.

  4. erratic keyboard? Out of the fryingpan into the fire? Frustrating!!

  5. Ah yes. Computers. We love them when they're working perfectly but as soon as something goes wrong, the can frustrate the daylights out of us. I've got to take my daughter's laptop in later this week due to some unknown mystery. And I'm just praying that my 2003 HP Pavilion laptop has several more years in it. Fortunately everything is backed up on an external drive. Hopefully you'll have yours up and running soon. Until then, enjoy the unplugged world. :) Love Simon & Garfunkel.

  6. Sounds like a lovely holiday, Anna. I agree with Grace, enjoy your unplugged time. :)

  7. Hope you get your computer problems sorted out soon. I know they are only machines but sometimes it is easy to imagine they have a mind of their own!

  8. Computers drive me to distraction sometimes. My ISP has upgraded my service which means I can't access my email until I've done various things. Fortunately Wellyman generally can come to the rescue as some of it goes straight over my head. Hope you get sorted out soon, I'd love to hear more about your holiday. I'd love to go to France so maybe you can inspire me to book something there.


All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at :
