Catching up

Ring sister to confirm plans for Easter visit and agree joint policy on Eggs (lots). Discuss French Exchange Students, birthday presents, and Archbishop of Canterbury.

Receive invitation to former colleague’s retirement party in summer. Slight wistfulness at sight of maiden name on envelope, and brief pangs of nostalgia for past London life; send e-mail to accept and almost instantly receive return message with news of office which reminds me that am Well Out Of It.

Tonight is 80s/90s Theme Night at village hall and have still not thought what to wear. Bridesmaid dress from 1992 probably not quite suitable; will perhaps just wear something black and if anyone asks claim am channelling early 1980s Japanese avant-garde. Try to suppress unworthy thought that would prefer to spend evening painting bathroom.
