Long time no see

I haven't seen my mum's brother for about 10 years or more. We write, and talk on the phone, but just haven't been face to face. He and his wife and another couple came on holiday our way so this morning mum and I met them in their hotel and had coffee and a good chin wag. It is amazing the difference 10 years make when it's the difference between 70 and 80. But I guess the difference in me was probably just as noticeable to them. When I was much younger my uncle used to call in on his way home from work and we would have a cup of tea and discuss all sorts, including religion quite a lot. I think it is fair to say that he had a lot to do with setting me along my spiritual path. It's the third day running I have been up at 6:30 and out by 7:30 so was feeling very tired this afternoon. Hubby had gone shopping so I put a CD on and put my feet up on the settee, just for a few minutes you understand. I thought there was something wrong with the CD because it finished only a few minutes afterwards, then I realised there was something wrong with the clock as well. My afternoon has disappeared down a rift in the space time continuum.
