As long as....

{image from here}



......the sun is shining inside you, that is all that matters!

This morning, I have been busy with Monday morning errands - you know the sort of things that I mean; go to bank, Post Office etc etc.

This afternoon is the marriage of some friends so I have my fingers crossed that the weather stays fine. Whilst running my errands I passed a stranger twice in the street and as per the norm here in France, I said rebonjour the second time around.

He mentioned that he was on holiday and how he was enjoying walking around the village taking in the history of the medieval village in which we live. I replied that it was a nice day for a walk as the sun was shining. He replied as long as the sun is shining inside you, the rest is immaterial.

Never a truer word said......
