Well we got home last night to find that David Kydd and his helpers from New Futures at CATH [Churches Action for the Homeless] had completed and installed the Pergola. Well done to all of them – various trailers and climbers will soon be exercising themselves all over it. It will make a fitting entrance to the Lime Tree Walk.
Our trip home was enlivened by the refusal of P and O to allow Poppy to relax in the lounge. She had a choice of somewhere under the back stairs or the car – she chose the car. She also shared our astonishment when – about a mile short of Blogstead – we found ourselves having to stop because an owl was standing in the middle of the road.
