Went to visit the cacti, alpine plants and bare trees at Winterbourne Gardens today, on my 5th day of "leisure". Five days already, really? That has gone more quickly than I expected now that I think of it in that way. Strange seeing a whole world I don't usually see - the High Street full of retired people, the tea shops frequented by "silver surfers", and of course, multitudes of mums ... two and a bit weeks to go till I join them properly. If we are on time, of course.
