  3. I just remembered I had a four-leaf clover. I left it pressing in a book. I left the book in Sussex. I think my books all went to a charity shop.
Someone will buy an old book about France and good luck will come tumbling out.

  6. After reading, I lie down and think about my home, the home of my heart. I open out my arms and the sky opens back. Open and endless.
Time slows. I can hear small spiders making their way through the grass. I must be dreaming.

  7. A hot day has turned into a moiling evening
The sky is heavy and full of wheeling gulls
Ants and flying ants are all out and frantic
I’m home now, windows wide open, on my bed, waiting for the rain

  8. I felt the call of the sea yesterday. When I got there I realised what I actually heard was the call of the ice cream van.
I saw an egret and got 5 egret points.

  10. Having time to watch the world turn is a great gift. Gently and day by day, I am given something to live for.
Coming back after a week away is another treat. Red mushrooms have appeared. Hogweed has turned to dry stalks, with umbels seedy instead of foamy white. Bright yellow ragwort is coming out.

    I enjoyed watching razorbills take off, fly and land.

Today I’m all like: ah sure, I can live with it
