Welcome back to Sara and The Poet - they've been on holiday, celebrating the end of their respective courses, to a relaxing Spa style Hotel break in the south. They had had a much deserved indulgent time and had found an unexpectedly deserted beach, the location of which shall remain secret, but had been enjoying the warm swimming in a pool so much that they hadn't swum in the sea. DK was singularly unimpressed at the reports of 25 degree water.
Congratulations to DK, who has finished the recording of his memoires and is knackered. I've always thought that a good indication of the success of a recording/edit is the response for technicians working on it, and his had clearly had a thoroughly entertaining week, and he now knows more about DK than most. 
Tyres - I'd had a blow out on the way to Norwich early yesterday morning, not a great start to the day, which got progressively worse as I managed to get grease on my new scarf (a present from one on the LOTVs) whilst changing the tyre, was late for a haircut as a result so look like Ringo Star, and had subsequently discovered that both front tyres were bald and one of the back ones was distorted. To make matters worse the tracking was totally out, so 7 hours later and £430 lighter I finally made it home, greeted by the owner as if I'd 'broken' his car. Not a great day, but it ended so well as I went over to The Artist's suite at the hotel, where she was preparing for her 80th birthday party, to do her hair and make and help her get dressed up. Blimey she scrubs up well. I took these photos over to show The Drapers, with whom we had dinner, and they've asked her to do some modelling for them as a result.
