We drove down to Leicester for Alice's blessingway. It's a women's thing, so I went for a walk round the neighbourhood on a pre-planned route, taking in a bran-new Hindu temple, a medieval church and a prehistoric monolith. Then I sat in the car and read Ambrose Bierce until they called me in to eat. A film company has latched onto Alice and had sent two young women to film proceedings and conduct interviews for a documentary series about contemporary attitudes to childbirth. My first wife was running the kitchen. This is the second time I've met her this year. We seem to get on fine. |
Glad to hear you''re getting on with your ex. Life is too short.
Will there be pics of the church and stone or are you merely teasing?
No, I'll post images in due course...
Well, I'm impatient and you've spoiled us, haven't you?
I've never heard of a blessingway...of course my daughters were born 29 and 31 years ago.
Getting on with your ex is good...no need for more tension as we age, I think.
looking forward to photos!
It was new to me as well.

I love Leicester - it's me second favourite city after Oxford - and it has some things that are better than Oxford -
