I began the day by adding last night’s photographs of Great Aunt Louisa, First Cousins once removed, Jessica and Imogen, meeting Ellie to that day’s post:
At mid-morning Louisa, Jessica, and Imogen arrived back at our house.
They were quickly at home with their mobile phones, each playing Wordle.
Elizabeth, Danni, Ella, and Jack joined us for lunch, after which we all took a trip to Burley in separate cars where we split up to go our separate ways in the village, agreeing to meet up back in the car park after an hour.
First we visited the pannage pigs on the slopes above the Queen’s Head pub, where Louisa photographed
me with Jessica, Imogen and a pig (with thanks to my friend, SueW for straightening this image);
then also with Danni and Ella.
The Mall is a little alley of shops leading from the Main Street to the car park. We encountered each other there.
Here, if you include Jessica and Imogen in the background, is everyone except Jackie, Flo, Dillon, and Ellie. Ella was certainly surprised to se me.
Jessica and Imogen had, like Ella, found the ice cream stall. As they studied a shop window they cast long shadows in the lowering sunlight, as did
Louisa outlined pushing Jack in his buggy.
Before finally departing, Ella displayed a bought Owl.
We returned to Old Post House for further conversation, games, and Ella to distribute her older toys to Ellie.
Elizabeth had cooked a flavoursome spaghetti Bolognese yesterday with which she fed us all at her house this evening with plentiful fresh salad and various beverages, including red wine for me.
