I haven’t had much time to write this week and I still don’t. I have been working in Germany. Next week I’m back in Germany and Austria again for six weeks. This week I’m making the final preparations for the sale of my Mum’s house, my family home. If all goes to plan, this will be the last week I ever spend any time there (even if it is only to gut the place) and I shall be handing over the keys before I leave next weekend.
My emotions are all over the place.
And tonight I am sitting alone in the house awaiting the arrival of the worst storm to hit my part of the world for twenty five years; a potential hurricane no less.
The windows are already rattling or else boarded up. The rain sounds like thunder. The wind is seeping through the cracks and making the floors creek more than ever and the chimney is whistling an eerie tune . Well, it is nearly Halloween…
So I will curl up next to the strongest wall and hope for the best.
And the phrase that comes to mind comes from the very end of one of my favourite films, “Serenity” about which I should write more one day.
ETA 12 Hours later… The St Jude’s storm has indeed passed now and I am safe and well. 🙂
