Seeing Nuala

http://disasterfilm.blogspot.co.uk/2011/12/rat-under-sofa.html

Sandy asked me if I was the exterminator at home
The above link perhaps will answer this question quite nicely

Anyway this morning I am off to London
I am going to see Nuala my " touchstone"
We are going to the ballet, we are going out to dinner and we are going to talk all day
It's a Christmas tradition

Nu, has been my best friend since the late 1980s
She has been my rock
My constant
And my buddy for more years than I care to remember.
And I love her dearly
Today we will be touching base...it's been far too long

She is as essential to me as breathing

  24. The photo of you and Nuala is directly across from the one of you and Winnifred (at least on my screen)... Nuala may be your best friend, but just think... you can snuggle with Winnie any time ;-) Have fun and enjoy your day in the city!

    ps..How does one pronounce Nuala? I' m sure the way I imagine it is completely off.

  33. Very envious of the ballet. We used to take daughter in The Days of Money. One of my very favourite (and late discovered) joys of life.
    Have a lovely time.
