This is just to get things off my chest.
This weekend was amazing, I had an amazing time with friends I have because of Dan. I also had a not that great time with friends I have because of myself!
Without getting bogged down in the details I experienced generosity and meanness of spirit in abundance. Neither surprised me at all, but the generosity, openness and welcoming nature of people are the things I shall be taking with me. Sadly I will have to spend more time around the other but that's a part of my life, it is not my life and they are not my friends.
I am more fortunate than I ever realised, which says a great deal.
I also saw a pigeon sleeping in one of my plant pots the other day, it was adorable.
