It's funny, this writing for no one really. I feel I should be able to tell all my thoughts and inner musings, but then, with my name on this damn thing (that was a mistake!!) I still have to censor...

We just had some really wonderful friends from California stay the last couple nights with us. They are going through the hardest thing imaginable for parents and just had to escape home for a while. God, who wouldn't. So they are visiting friends and family round Europe for a few weeks. I feel very privileged that they stopped with us as long as they did. And that hopefully we could be a part of the healing process with them? I know it will be a forever long thing but... I was encouraged to hear how open they were about their thoughts and feelings. I think I miss that openness living over here. The English can be SO closed. I do feel a little guilty saying that though as I have some wonderful friends over here that I can share anything with and they with me. But they know that and if they were to ever read this, they would know I don't mean them!!

On that subject, my husband laughs at me - he says he has learned more about people he's known all his life since he's been with me than he ever would have otherwise! Little secret to all you Brits... you think you are being nosy when you ask someone about their life, but people LOVE to talk about themselves, no matter where they are from!
