It was so lovely to spend the day with my big sister Kath. Just to be with her, not to do anything special.
And I enjoyed the change of scene – the 50 mile drive there and back through Sherwood Forest and the arable lands of Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. She lives so near, but the countryside couldn’t be more different. There’s not a dry stone wall or a limestone edge in sight…just ploughed fields, some of them already green with winter wheat. And it’s balmier there - some of the beeches and birches are still sporting leaves! You expect the oaks – which we don’t have here – to be thick with rusty leaves, but not the other trees.
I came home to real post: a decorated card from Lux (4) with a message (which she dictated for Wendy to write.)
I hope you have a good day and I love you.
And I want to take care of you.
I want you to have a star of good luck and many good things.
You are my Sue and I love you,
You are my star of good luck, Lux.
