This was Hugo yesterday, on the train, on our way to a Belmont Abbey School, year of ’74, re-union. With all the emotional trauma of organising a funeral service, cremation and ashes scattering ceremony, in Ireland, over, it was wonderful to at last feel unburdened and able to enjoy a wonderful day with people who I had shared the last very happy couple of years at school.

Hugo and I went into London as he has a day off school. I mistakenly thought the Natural History Museum wouldn’t be crowded as it’s still term time. In my day the museums were beautifully empty on school days, and apples tasted better, and you could go out for a three course meal and still have change from sixpence.

The start of the Tall Ships’ Race 2006
My little girl racing in this
Flo is setting off from Torbay to Portugal on the 50th tall ships race today.

Anyway do not try to get in touch with me from 14:30 GMT today as I will be glued to the live video of the start here. As you can imagine I’m excited and anxious for her
