Thread Name: BS: Happy Mayday!
Subject: RE: BS: Happy Mayday!
Thank you all so much for your kind words! I'm very lucky to be living in this rural village - people here have a great sense of community, and I can chat to all my neighbours as they trot past with their numerous dogs!
I'm awaiting the return of the house martins any day soon. And I might hear the cuckoo calling from the nearby woods.
There are several May events at the village hall too.
I keep humming in my head those ancient May songs ('Sumer is icumin in' 'Now is the month of maying', 'Now the green blade riseth' and so on)
I don't wish my disappeared husband ill - I hope he's alright in his bedsit in our nearest town. At least I taught him to speak English, and our various systems of Tax etc., so he's well-equipped to survive. (If he has a new lady, I hope she speaks a bit of French!) By Divorce Law though, he might be entitled to half my house and property, and I may have to move out to live in a tiny flat. Oh dear ...!
