And I asked for, and got, the family photo. All of us in the same place, for a few hours, and that is also very special. The fact that I hijacked it and called it Mother's Day, made it even better.
Stunning. And then a few metres later, the city of Canterbury came into view. For those of you who may not know, the Archbishop of Canterbury is the head of the global Anglican Church. And Chaucer's Canterbury Tales are familiar to many who studied English at university! It is an ancient little city with an incredibly rich history.
So I am home again, complete with my daughter in residence as I speak. She is cleaning the shower. She has already been sorting things, like my kitchen, and she cooked a wonderful risotto last night. And chased the squirrels away from my vegetable garden. Me? I am sitting back and enjoying just having her here.
Actually, I am off to try and construct a "Keep the Squirrels Out" thingy with wood and netting. Nails and a hammer should do it. The saw is in the kitchen after all. My drill.....
