Mon plat pays...

After the rain, sunlight glints on the hanging leaves and blades of grass outside in the back garden. Have that "getting packed again and ready to go" feeling.
Clothes, washed and rolled for the rucksack (to eliminate creases), lie patiently on the bedroom table.
In the living room I have tried to tidy the piles of books (far too many, must find a grateful hospital...) and throw away superfluous papers.
A large vase of elegant autumn flowers stands by the window -- brought by friends in honour of my birthday last week.
I am phoning Dutch friends while here -- cheap arrangement to call within the Netherlands. After all, not everyone has, or uses, a laptop -- yet!
Kate has just come for tea (and I've just made a bowl of hummus).
