On Wednesday I spent the afternoon and evening with Chris and Sally, the parents of my daughter’s partner, Ben. Their house is about 15 miles away, and when I arrived Brice, a local blacksmith, was at the house attaching their new iron work railings. Although Brice has made an excellent set of iron work, it has taken him quite a while to make and then mount the railings. Still, I think the wait has been worthwhile.
The photographs don’t really show the railings to their best effect, but I think you can get a good idea.
Jane, who has been Sally’s friend for over 40 years, was visiting so it was good to meet with her. With Tim away I was beginning to get tired of my own company, so didn't need much persuasion to join them. Normally I am fairly comfortable with my own company, but, as with all things, you can have too much of a good thing!!!
In the evening we had a delicious and very relaxing BBQ – cooked by Chris but prepared by Sally and Jane. Just before I left to drive back to Le Petit-Pressigny there was a wonderful sunset …….
You can just pick out the wind generators on the horizon.
