Good morning

Welcome to the sitster working week. Live from the bus stop at the entrance to Stokes Valley, where it is dry but humid. It's been quite a weekend, but not just because the Sharks won. On the bus now, it's almost empty, to say nothing of very quiet, even with the roar of the diesel engine which normally I don't even notice. Viv will be out when I get home: planning for the Kids Games programme during the school holidays. After that, maybe a painting session if It's not too late. As for me and the boys, probably fish and chips and a quiet night. On the platform, I don't see any of the people I recognise. Just the 0745 train, late as expected. It is very quiet here too. I never realised how noisy school children are. A chorus of voices in my head says: 'So! You're not a teacher! Not even a little bit!' An express train has turned up, so I have got on that. It's moving, so that's a bonus. Mr Sun has come to say hello and brighten our day. Hope this meandering post has brightened yours...
