Going away 'til Friday

My friend N and I are going here for a week. My Skye friend told me about it, if you give them three hours weeding a day they give you accommodation and the rest of the time's your own.

Not sure N's spinal tumour will let her do 3 hours, so I've agreed to make up her her time. I don't mind as it looks a lovely place and if I'm doing jobs like weeding my mind floats off, free to think about things.

N has an MRI scan next week to see what the tumour is up to, so it will be good to get away and do other things, the time approaching a test always hangs heavy on your mind, as you try to prepare yourself for every possible outcome.

My men are doing other things anyway, so provided I leave the cupboards well stocked I doubt I'll be missed. And I get away from my pc, though I've taken the chapter of the book that I'm working on, so if I can't sleep I'll scribble some more in longhand.

Enjoy the week as best you can wherever you are.
