I do feel sorry for the Joyceans who like to head out in straw boaters on their bicycles today. The fine weather has ended. It is raining. The boys only have one exam each left to do (German was this morning, alright thanks, in preparation we finished watching Dark last night, series 3 nearly killed me, 100% could not recommend). Coincidence? I think not.
I am glad that yesterday, I went out for lunch by the seaside, had a swim and earlier in the week walked to the theatre in sunshine (play about mental asylum a bit harrowing but still bright when we got out). Am I smug? Is this not what you come here for?
