Halloween in England

It's Halloween Eve and I am in England. It's a bit chilly outside but fine and not windy. Thank God I'm not in New York just now. Horrible, horrible, horrible! There is no defense against nature when it strikes in such a powerful way. The sea has surged into the city, poured down subways, flooded basements. Thousands of homes are without power, and at least 13 people are dead. Hurricane Sandy has been demoted to a storm but the wind has not stopped blowing. There are fires in the city and devastation all along the east coast of America.

Meanwhile, here in England, I am contemplating buying a One-sy and making sure there are supplies of cocoa in the cupboard. I made my London debut at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden at the weekend, a good experience, and I have another venue lined up on 20 November.

I'm not sure what is going to happen to this blog, I can hardly write about Crete when I don't live there, but I am looking forward to returning for the month of March. Jo has enrolled us into a choir which starts on the 2nd November, so looks like there is fun to be had before Christmas. Tomorrow we are giving a bit of a Halloween Party for Jack and his friends, green face-paint at the ready. So, it's all go.

I hope you are all well, maybe I'll get into the swing of blogging again very soon. My love to all blogwatchers.
