The lead up to the end of year is always hectic and that is why I have not been around here much.
Sorry I have not been to visit you but looking forward to coming over to say hello soon.
The end is in sight for the building work around our place and this week saw some outside steps and raised garden beds in which I planted some herbs, tomatoes and a passionfruit vine in it, so hopefully we will have some rainfall to keep everything healthy.
We have enjoyed having our daughter home for a few days and she left yesterday to go back to her apartment in the City.
Last night we went to Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam's ) concert and it was wonderful.
It was one of my dreams to see him and when he turned his back on the music industry and gave it all up and stopped performing, did not think that would happen.
The show started off with a background set of a stylised London train station which set the scene well for his early days growing up in London.
Then he invited us up to a mock up of the attic in the family home, where we saw some of his treasures and he shared stories of his life.
All the old favourites, Father and Son, Wild World, Peace Train, Moonshadow and Remember the days in the old school yards, were some of the wonderful songs he played - his soulful voice sounded remarkable and unchanged from all those years ago.
The great part about it, the crowd sang along with him as we knew all the old tunes and if you closed your eyes it transported you back to 1971.
The final song 'Morning has broken' and one I have always loved and played on the piano, was a wonderful end to the evening.
Have you ever been lucky to attend one of Cat Stevens concerts?
Hope all is well with you and the lead up to the end of the year is relaxed and calm.
Will leave you will some pretty peonies and hope your week is going well and wishing you a happy weekend
