No2 eventually returned this evening having tracked down the only two pairs of the white trousers in the North East that she needs for her uniform! Some white trainers and the ensemble was complete.
In the mean time I sorted a few household chores and went up to the cottage to put animals to bed. This is the view we have from the top of our fields. Everyone in our family has lived in less salubrious surroundings and we all think ourselves very lucky to see this whenever we wish.
