How did we miss taking a picture? Our visit with Pat was thoroughly enjoyable, from how light and spontaneous the conversation feels around her, to how delighted Alex and James were to 'discover' this fun 'new' (80-year-old) relative, to the yummy Italian restaurant and the delish cream tea at her home. We were sad to leave, but THATCH awaited.
Pat provided us the use of her land line, thank heavens. With that, I was able to reach my bank, which had inexplicably cut me off! I was able to head west a bit more relaxed.
