Well, it’s not hard to see that Spring is on its way and if the weather stays dry until Sunday, and I think it might well, I could be able to start digging and tidying up the garden. Its been dry for the last 2-3 weeks and the ground isn’t as soggy as it was at the end of February. I’ll have to admit it does need doing with all the new unwanted weeds emerging through the warming soil, so hopefully Sunday will be it.
At last there’s been some positive news, in that my sister Keri has been sent back to the UK in the light of the worsening situation in Bahrain. It means I can stop worrying as she’ll be safer over here, although the separation from everyone there will not be easy for her to take.
In the class we’ve started with Sage Line 50, and that’s better as at last there’s now something for me to get to grips with, and at the moment, that’s what I need. There’s not been that much to test the old grey cells recently and this is more like action.
Perhaps I’m missing it in class this afternoon but I’m getting a real sense of being on my own, in a political way, but the one-eyed views on certain issues are a little unsettling. I have to accept that other people have differing views to me and that’s what the world is about, as we all couldn’t have the same views with our different upbringings. It’s been hard for me to not want to shout and argue as I know full well it could lead to something worse, today is not a political discussion. There’s a part of me that can’t believe people hold such contrary opinions and at how wrong they are, but then they probably think the same about mine! Let’s not forget I grew up in an area where a Labour supporter was viewed with grave suspicion and mistrust, let’s face it, nothing has changed. However, to be in a group where you can clearly feel that they believe what they are told by the likes of Ken Livingstone etc., given the state of the country after Mr Livingstone’s party were so long in power, it’s somewhat perverse in my eyes.
As a result, I’m saying very little and concentrating on the lesson…
