Yesterday I had lunch with my Elderly Dad, who is, still, very eccentric. He tells me he loves me, and he is clearing his flat out and that makes me feel he is entering the final years of his life. It is time to visit him more often. He gave me an old fur lined driving coat belonging to my step grandmother, and I am very touched. It looked like a an animal asleep on the chair, so I was relieved when he picked it up and told me it was a coat. It would have been a Bad Idea if Elderly Dad had decided to own a Mangy Lion in his remaining years in his flat in Teddington.
Tea with Sister In Law. Love my Sister In Law. We are in the same boat with men, she and I, so we had a good long grown up talk about How To Move On and What To Wear While Doing It. (New clothes always help).
On to the Glorious Clarissa's! Dinner with the Glorious Clarissa and the Remarkably Handsome Billy, who is her suave and sohpisticated Handy Man. Remarkably Handsome Billy and Clarissa have known each other for years and years, and I joined in the conversation last night with delight. Remarkably Handsome Billy, who wore just the right shade of blue in his shirt, entertained us with an account of how he met his beautiful Lady, Henrietta, who though I have not met her, sounds absolutely Wonderful. By all accounts, Clarissa says, they make a Fabulous Couple.
Today, 13 Year Old Son makes his way by train to Pulborough. His Grandmother will wait at Pulborough with a flask of tea, a good book and a blanket because there is no knowing where 13 Year Old Son will actually go to. He is a law unto himself when it comes to travel. She may have to wait for days and days for him to arrive.
Oxford for Clarissa and Me! Hooray! We have no plan, we are just Going. There is a rumour that A Graceful Death will be shown there but it seems very haphazard so we are going to check. "Is A Graceful Death part of this Festival?" "Maybe." "Ok, lets go out to lunch Clarissa."
