I clocked up another year this week. I don't feel any different from when I was a young woman, and my days are just as busy and diverse. I am very lucky to have the health and energy to live the life I do.
I had a very good day on Wednesday, even though it started with apocalyptic weather, as I drove the pup to see the vet nurse in Haddington. Black as night, thunder, lightening and torrential rain. It was quite something. But then the sun came out later on, and Tilly and I enjoyed a stroll along a short stretch of the John Muir Way.
The highlight of my day was listening to my favourite musician, Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek, with his group and featuring an extraordinary Indian percussionist, Trilock Gurtu. The concert was part of the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, and it was fabulous! Dinner afterwards, at a great little French restaurant in Edinburgh, rounded off a wonderful day.
