Among my visitors today was one from a nursing service, very interesting.
Adrian and Sarah McConnaughie came to lunch and Dolly MacDougall dropped in with Beatrice. So it was a jolly party.
My brother Robert is spending tonight at Monkton Combe, the school we both went to, at a conference on Monkton's Christian heritage.
It turned out that Charlie had never been to see the school, and that Dorothy liked the idea of seeing the school, so we made an expedition. Charlie drove me there, and Robert drove Dorothy. We parked in the Farm Yard, and had a little tour of the 'new' buildings.
Then we went in wheel-chair procession down the lower path by the swimming pool to the Dining Hall to see whether I could get into the Old Hall for a cup of tea, but no. We found a new area with sitting places, very pleasant. I sat in the wheel-chair and some people I knew, like Ray Lockhart, came and chatted. Christopher Rogers was very attentive, too. I tried to remember on video what went on in the various rooms I could spot from where I was. We left at 6 pm.
Because it was more or less bedtime when we got home, I went straight upstairs. The great thing is that Charlie found that with a push on each step, on the right part of the anatomy, I can still make progress up the stairs and arrive at the landing in fairly good shape. Thank God.
A lot of pictures were taken today, so I shall post a selection asap.
