Had a great weekend with Jo and Bob, In a little village near Exeter. Jo and I have been best friends since we first went to teachers college, St Matthias in Bristol. Their house is white with a thatched roof and an old baker’s oven behind the fireplace. Jo cooked and we caught up on our news. We walked along the beach and talked, through the sand dunes still talking, their cocker spaniels loving the walk too. Bob produced all the vegetables for lunch and dinners in his allotment garden, I was Impressed by the variety he had, from potatoes to red peppers. Two days was barely enough after missing two years because of Covid.
