What I Miss Most






There are lots of things I miss most, family members, friends and bits of my life that no longer exist, like listening to music as loud as possible like I did when I was a teenager without caring about the neighbours. The thing i miss most though has to be the sea living in Bedford is about as far away as you can get. As a family we love to visit Weymouth and in particular it's next door neighbour Portland and it's light house Portland Bill. The coast line is really rugged and the sound of the crashing waves washes the stresses away. The picture on the front of this weeks card is based on two lovley photos that i found on the web one with a beautiful rainbow http://www.uklandscape.net/Roger-Holman/Portland%20Bill.jpgand one with a whole bunch of pink flowers http://www.portlandbill.co.uk/images/bill_flowers3.jpgmakes me wish I was there right now.
