We set off for the shops in the Valley for chicken and chips for lunch from the dairy, stopping to eat in Speldhurst Park and playing here for a little while. The boys played while I watched the linemen working on the power lines down Stokes Valley Road. My guess is that there has been some damage to them in the recent storms, but not in need of immediate repair.
We walked down (up?) Stokes Valley Road, noticing houses with ornamental cats on the window sills, hearing the babbling of brooks you don't notice if you drive past and generally rejoicing in the sounds and smells of spring.
Sweetcorn is cooked, so I'll continue describing the day later.
