have I become blase of kites?…. so soon?……… no chance!….. although yesterday I only saw one it was in the unlikely place of the supermarket car park in the middle of town!…. where it hovered and swooped looking defiantly out of place……… I’m not usually very good at holidays, I can get bored just ‘being‘… Continue reading particularly particular, 16/May/17
