Subject: RE: BS: The Essence of England
I really love it when people talk and communicate, and 'go off the rails' in discussions. It's so human. My husband finds it bizarre and rolls his eyes at checkouts etc and mutters, "Yap yap yap!" the cheeky thing. He also finds it weird when everyone thanks the bus driver when alighting from the bus.
We've just come back from the library, and there was a group of little tots being led in nursery rhymes and babies' action songs. All the old stuff (Grand Old Duke Of York, Humpty Dumpty, Incy Wincy Spider etc) No-one ever sang to my husband when he was small. Very sad.
Libraries, museums, Open Garden Scheme, masses of Christmas lights on houses with a charity box outside.
Apparently, they've just perfected a vaccine for malaria. If I decamped to W Africa, that would be a huge weight off my mind. One can't take anti-malarial tablets for more than a few months.
Such a difficult decision...
