As I patiently wait for Drew to finish the last bits of work he has promised his mates he’d attend to this weekend, the gentle sound of raindrops slapping water drifts up to us from the canal. We’ve been well fed and watered by new friends Adam and Milly (and baby Rufus). It has been a beautiful day.

Maybe it’s the warmth of budding friendship or the wine- or maybe it’s the effect of having been so near a precious miracle- that gives me the feeling that I am going to be fine.

Despite the way it looks, there was intelligent and stimulating conversation. Bless him, it was a lot to process.
