How time flies...this time last week I was sat on a wooden deck, overlooking a surf break on the Indian Ocean, sipping beer and snapping away at the surfers riding the crest of a rolling wave...
Today, I'm sat in my office desperately trying to catch up on my work. The grey clouds are moving in fast and I just heard a rumble of thunder. My thoughts keep jumping from one task to another, things I need to book, things I need to do...book a restaurant in London, find out how to get to the local hospital for a kidney scan, get to grips with my new tumble drier, tidy up the garden, pack for a weekend in Northampton...arghhhh!!
It scares me how quickly you can lose the feeling of utter relaxation, that moment in the day when the sun has warmed you, your hunger has been sated at the buffet, a drink has magically appeared by your side and you feel the hand of your loved one lazily slip into yours.
When the list becomes too long, the tasks too many to handle, I stop; pulling up the folder of holiday snaps that I have stored on every computer, device and memory stick I own, I go immediately to this one -
I take a deep breath, close my eyes and remember our special time in Paradise.
