Eh, by gum. It's raining in Leicestershire. Surprise,surprise. I slept in till 10.00am ( in our own bed -sheer bliss ) and awoke with a clear head, which bodes well. Discussing this with Lynne on our way home we concluded my recently lowered aspirations have been the main factor in this improvement in my mental state over the past few weeks. In addition Lynne is only drip-feeding me details of plans for the immediate future on a"need to know"basis which reduces brain overload considerably.
We have Chloe staying with us prior to her England debut, thus her and Lynne can share driving duties up to Scotland and back as they are both on our insurance, temporarily.
