Returning after four days of Platinum Jubilee celebrations, and after his painstaking preparation, Nick was able to
almost complete his ground floor painting today.
Afterwards Jackie and I took a short forest drive. Sailboarders were out on the Solent against the backdrop of the Isle of Wight. The colourful expert disappeared out of sight until turning up alongside the island. His companion was receiving instruction from our shore.
A solitary fisherman was perhaps hoping for a catch or two.
This evening we all dined on Jackie’s wholesome sausage casserole, spicy red cabbage, boiled potatoes; and Becky’s crunchy vegetable bake, with which Becky drank Zesty; Jackie and Ian, premium Weisbier; and Doom Bar for me.
