Wink is, I think, on the verge of getting a social life that doesn’t involve us. That is a very good thing. She’s happy to be introduced as my sister but she doesn’t need to be prejudged that way.
Someone she knew was going to stay with a relation in Yagnub and, since it fitted in with her plans, she gave him a lift from Wiltshire to here. Then she kindly drove him to the station to catch his train home. She’d befriended the relation he stayed with and invited her to lunch today. She’s great company and has lots of friends, so will introduce Wink to people I don’t know. I’ve never been part of Yagnub society particularly, which is a pity – I tended to gravitate towards the nearest village as well as here, then to Norwich. So I may expand in her wake – she’s far more outgoing than I am and is good at making friends. I’m a bit more introverted, though not less friendly.
A busy few days coming up, starting with an appointment near Norwich at 9.30 am tomorrow. Eek. I’ve set my alarm for 7.30 and will scuttle around a bit. Family stuff after that. I so appreciate being a bit busy.
This evening, I’ve been playing the clarinet, with a bit of an effort as my embouchure is shot to pieces after a long hiatus. Tim has been playing the guitar, inspired by me. We are determined to play more. We both love it, if we play well. But it takes a lot of work to get up to the standard that pleases us (pleases the player, that is; the listener is more indulgent).
