11.45     Home for lunch and delivery of two adjusted-trousers. My legs are too short, it seems, or perhaps too long. M&S trousers are conventionally 31” or 29”. This is especially unfair to a person with 30” legs. Other manufacturers also sometime fall on the same standard division, as opposed to US manufacturers who usually go 28” - 30” – 32”.

Appropriately so, as rain is a constant of this week’s weather, and today it’s pouring down. Only a few seats were left, in the last row at the back, for this afternoon’s show. I politely declined. “Well, you can go out on the pavement and sing it yourself!” Thus the friendly badinage of the post-mature volunteer ticket-person.

Off to tea.

Not at Mr. Romain’s standard by a long shot, but with some useful and well-priced items.

Then to another Antiques Barn six miles down the road, returning home for two shopping expeditions, a walk around the town, supper and to gentle.
