Bits And Pieces

1. Today marks the third anniversary of us moving in with my mother. In the interim we've sold our own house and become acclimatised- indeed naturalised- to the South East. None of this was ever part of what I had projected for my old age, but it's all good.

2. We've treated ourselves to the Globe Theatre's "Happy 400th Deathday, Shakey" big box set. It arrived this morning: 21 plays- including some of the less usual ones- like Love's Labours Lost- and one or two legendary productions like the all-star Twelfth Night with Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry.

3. It was my daughter who reminded me about kids liking postcards. So now I've got the habit: go somewhere cool, buy cards, send to grandchildren. We were at Herstmonceux Castle yesterday- and today I wrote and posted the cards. I remember it's something my own grandparents doing. My grandfather took lots of exotic business trips and most of his cards had aeroplanes on them; I suppose he bought them at the airport. I received so many- one way and another- I was given an album to keep them in.
