Daughter No 1 came to visit for the day to celebrate Christmas, New Year and my birthday, all missed for one reason or another so, despite the hailstones, the rain and the hoolie blowing, we went to the beach for a brief walk.

I have spent the day in the shade on this beautiful sunny day and have read a whole book, completely unable to put it down – Helen Dunmore’s “Talking to the Dead.” If you enjoy a taut, psychological story that keeps you guessing, this is for you. It left me stunned.
We took a different route through town today and came across this front door with its delightful wreath. I love the door bell too. Some of the last leaves to turn are these, Maples I think, on the lane home.
I haven’t driven my car for months and sorned (Statutory Off Road Notification) it as the first lockdown began as I knew I wouldn’t be going to choir for some time. Now that it’s all happening again and there is little hope of singing for many months, my lovely Beetle has gone on holiday! Our eldest daughter has a workshop where she is going to keep my beautiful little car out of the elements for the foreseeable future and she will bring it back, I hope, next Spring…….
My beloved Beetle has been away with Daughter No 1 for a couple of months being cherished and renovated and has come back today looking even better than when I bought her, two years old, eleven years ago. Absolute perfection! I am utterly delighted.
The roof hasn’t worked for many years – roll on Summer!
It is a joy to have my Beetle back and a joy to drive again. Thank you so much, M, for your fabulous work.
