Think I've come out in sympathy with our working brothers and sisters. Had a busy but very pleasant week but at lunch time I just nosedived and slept or messed about on here most of the afternoon. Enjoyed two talks at the Buxton festival - Melvyn Bragg on his book about the King James Bible on Friday and Roy Hattersley on his book on Lloyd George this am. it was a real treat to be in the Opera House and the Pavilion gardens looked so nice. Our drive to Buxton is spectacular, through the Derbyshire hills. How lucky am I. Hopefully I'll have a bit more get up and go tomorrow 'cause I have got to get up and go out early to CAB. Two years ago, just after retirement, life seemed uneventful and slow. I know I have really slowed down but that's a good thing, and you will never hear me saying that I'm busier than when I was working, but this summer has been great.
