Thank-yous, Exeter Cathedral and Phoenix

20 Aug

We took the train to Exeter today, had lunch with Daughter No 1, did a bit of shopping and were back at the station by about 5pm to return home when I got a phone call to say my wallet with all my cards in it had been handed in to Santander Bank. I hadn’t missed it!
Here I must say a very big Thank You to two people – to the good person who found and handed in my cards and to the lovely woman at the bank who stayed in the office although the bank was closed for the day until I managed to get back from the station. Β All goes to prove what I said the other day about there being very many lovely people in the world.

Exeter Cathedral is beautiful.

So is the Exeter Phoenix, though needing re-gilding.

    What a lovely post, Sally, the goodness of people, the beauty of the ancient cathedral, and the courage and optimism of people during the war symbolized by the phoenix…feels as though all’s right with the world, in spite of the bad news the news media spew out !!!

    Restores your faith in human nature, does it not?
