Monday 21st September
I am again in England for a few days, work and seeing relatives. Today I was up early and out by nine. Tube to Kings Cross then train to Stevenage. It was my grandson Sam’s sixth birthday on Thursday and I wanted to see him and his four year old sister Sophie. A lovely time; I helped him, or rather he helped me, make a helicopter with the Lego set I got him. Then we played a couple of games of Opposites, a nice twist on pairs. Although I am living mostly in France I am actually seeing my grandchildren at least as often as I did when we lived a few miles away in London.
Home by four and our friends came round, a bit of gardening and tidying up the house, then my wife’s stepson and family came over and we went out for a curry. All good fun, and now the day is nearly over, as tired and weary, I eke out a blog. Not much of one I must admit but it has been a busy old day.
