Last lunch with Flo
Yesterday we took Flo to start university. We booked a restaurant table at the nearby Trout Inn. For those of you who live further afield but have enjoyed the Inspector Morse series it’s the pub by the weir that is seen in several of the episodes. Now it’s been tarted up and although a pleasant enough restaurant, barely passes muster as a pub. Flo was so excited to be going at last that quite frankly we might as well have eaten at the local McDonald’s. And of course as soon as we had deposited her at her college, discovered that in fact she did need a duvet and pillow, bought requisite duvet and pillow and returned items to college she was shooing us out, desperate to get on with her new life. I’m so happy for her, I’m sure she is going to have a wonderful three or four years.
Today, despite the trainwreck of her bedroom, I missed Flo’s presence round the house and worst of all I missed my perfect companion for our weekly dose of University Challenge. I rather pathetically looked around her college website so that I could imagine what she was doing today. If she’s missing me she can also look there because to my surprise I discovered me here in the sixth photo down quaffing champagne on the left of the picture.
