Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I have been away for too long, but for very happy reasons. Firstly I have sat and read all the posts I have been missing and sending my love to all who have been ill and in pain or troubled in many ways.It si good to know that the Rainbow is sailing on with this caring crew.So much love aboard and wonderful people.

Much has happened over this spring and summer. One of my dearest cousins and best friend died and BB and I went to her funeral in Bristol,she had a loving family of four daughters and a son and many grandchildren who I am now in touch with almost daily. Her greatest joy was her family and indeed, she was responsible in keeping our cousins in touch and organised big family parties a task that I seem to have been delegated to continue ! I had a big Birthday in June an "O" (never mind the number before the O , I still never feel like a proper grown up, always thought I would be silver haired and wise, the hair is red and no wisdom at all) But any excuse for a family gathering , so this Saturday we are having a party , the marquee goes up on Thursday, the freezer is full of lasagne, cake and pudding making on Friday! *0 were invited and so far everyone is coming. My lovely friends of 45 years Skinners Rats are coming to play the music and we are having a barn dance!

For my Birthday treat BB took me to Scotland, what a beautiful country, the mountains and lochs, the islands, Rum, Mull, Skye and the peaceful Iona, and the joy of just us two sharing an adventure. WE found a folky radio station and sang our way in the car through the highlands.I am such a lucky, lucky girl!

So I am back on board ready for duty in the galley and I am here to stay.
Sailing on

much love Wendy xxx
