Yesterday afternoon my daughter picked me up and took me to my old 'regular' pub. In my excitement I forgot my stick, not too much of a problem as we parked right next to the garden gate.
What an overwhelming welcome I received from my long lost friends, who have become a sort of extended family. I got very out of breath from all the talking, trying to catch up with their personal events of the last year. Wonderful to taste again what has become my favourite beer, from a small local independent brewery. Whilst I never went inside the pub I felt totally safe sat outside amongst friends on a glorious sunny day.
Down from a high with a bump this morning, back to the daily routine and an overcast day.
