Life Goes On .....

Things are returning to normal here. The emotional intensity of the last week is starting to ease a little.

Life, indeed, goes on, with or without us.

Life in blogland will have to continue without me for the next 3 weeks because I am off to walk around the mountains for a bit.

France, Italy and Switzerland.

Smallish bag (have to carry everything we bring - 2 pairs of knickers - 1 to wear, 1 to wash - 2 pairs of socks ... )packed, famille organised to survive very well without us, checked in, waiting for boarding call. Hope the weather is a little better than it is here right now.

There will be limited internet access I'm sure in some of the villages we pass through. I shall try and keep up. I can hear Molly snorting derisively, I can't keep up at the best of times!

Stay safe everyone.

You people who just go and walk round the mountains in Italy and France and Switzerland. Sheesh.

Stay safe yourself, have a lovely walk.

Please be refreshed by mountains. Enjoy your walks.

Molly said...

Who me? Snort derisively? Never!
Turn green with envy and drool all over the lovely new 'puter---maybe. But you'll hear no derisive snorting from this quarter. Don't forget to mange some croissants, bois de vin rouge et parle de garbled Francaise on my behalf!Oh, and une carte postale from each country, s'il vous plait! Fingers crossed that you remembered to squeeze your camera into your "mala beag" along with your socks and your knickers!! Have a wonderful time......

Have just read your last entry and - oh dear. How very very awful.

Hope your walking round the mountains was healing. No wonder you're slender.

Lee said...

Ah, the joys of the two-knickers holiday!

(I've just washed mine, by the way. Didn't need to know that? Never mind.)

I hope you're having a wonderful "stroll" Rise!

I'm just back myself. Hope the trip restored your energy banks.
Cheers

Have a fabulous time!

Enjoy your walk, your family, your two pairs of knickers.

We'll be waiting more or less patiently for your return.

And most of all, stay safe.

Maddy said...

Sounds blissful. If you hadn't already left I'd sneak a ride in your backpack!
Cheers

Molly said...

OK --- what's all this about Life Goes On?---Get it on already! My tongue is hanging out for a new post here.....

Isabelle said...

Well, we got the postcard (via Molly). Where's the chocolate? And the photos?

Pauline said...

I heard you were back! Come talk! Was it lovely?

Molly said...

Hellooo-oh![Shouting into gaping dark and silent cavern---getting nothing back but echoes.] Your public awaits---but not so patiently......

Molly said...

Is it inspiration you're needin' darlin'? I'll send you some of mine! You'll need to bring some beer [chilled, please] and possibly, a wheelchair, and a muffler to gag him......

Maddy said...

Your three weeks are more than up dearie!
Best wishes

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Still not back, I see.

I hope everything is well and that we will enjoy your delightful pithiness again soon, Rise.

WHERE ARE YOU?!

It's been way too long. I'm having withdrawal symptoms.
