Ailz spends much of every day at the bungalow, coming home to eat and sleep. I walked over yesterday morning, which takes about 15 minutes, and fetched some spare pillows down from the loft. The weather's turned fine again. I'm reading a book of short stories by A.S. Byatt. She's very good at light and colour. Joe sends me an email describing Eric- his step-grandfather- as "a bear of goodwill". I like that. It's very Joe.
