Saw my granddaughter Lauryn today; my son Jamie brought her up to London by car. It was a beautiful day so we just wandered over into Highgate Wood.
We sat at the café in the centre – well, its been converted now and more like a small restaurant. The food is all good and wholesome; all home cooked and fresh. Even the bread was the real stone-ground stuff, and it did make a change to relax in the sun eating healthy food. But it was not only that; the air smelled clean and noisy traffic noises had just melted into the distance – in fact, you couldn’t even hear any cars or buses.
She’s only eleven, but so full of energy, and she enjoyed playing in the Woods afterwards expending even more of it! She’s a very pretty little girl and has inherited her father;s good looks – who, in turn, I have to say, has inherited mine! Jamie took a few photographs, but I can’t put any up at the moment. I intended to with this but unfortunately, my picture re-size programme has made itself in accessible for some reason so you will just have to wait a day or so for those. But it will be done.
But I think they enjoyed themselves anyway, apart from having to put up with my untidy flat! Well, I think I have already explained, that is one of the hazards of being a writer; papers all over the place, nothing filed properly, etc.
I’ll be seeing Jamie again soon, and hopefully he can bring Lauryn again. And what I will work on is getting the pictures re-sized so you can see them Shouldn’t take longer than a couple of days.
Well, that’s it really. A relaxing day and one I’m unlikely to forget in a hurry!
For the moment,
