No.1 sister left today and should be approaching our Northern hometown as I write. We - Col, Penny and I - went to Arundel this afternoon - bought some books and disappeared under a sea of hungry seagulls and such. I had brought the left over rice from last night and some seeds - and wish I had taken more food with me. The sisters treated us to a Thai takeaway last night - Jacks joined us. Col produced champagne and Baileys - and we ended up with a selection of chocolates - from Carol O'the North and Jean O' the Hall. Over in East Sussex - where there bee dragonnes - the snow apparently lies deep and thick and even. Here is it grey and mild and wet. And the Channel is calm.
