But first, May 24th Part II. Idiot that I am, I forgot the presents. She’d sneaked 3 surprise presents on board, + gave them to me with my meal. They were: a set of Spiderman stickers, a magnetic backgammon set, + a smart T-shirt. I’ve always berated Val in the past for her lack of imagination over presents, but I was really quite chuffed to receive these.
Anyway, May 25th, + a year away from home. Makes you think, don’t it? Though not much. It’s longer than I thought we’d be away. And we’re not heading homeward yet. Quite the opposite, in fact. However, apart from being an anniversary, not a day of note. The weather showed the first signs of brightening, but still no sun. I find the watches infinitely more bearable – or even pleasurable – now that SWII keeps me company.
So well done to you too, assuming you are one of the (small) group of regular readers – a whole year! Thanks to Val for the presents, and no need at all for the slightly sarky comment.
SWII is Sony Walkman 2, by the way – another technology that is virtually no more.
