    Thank you, everyone.

    I’ve had a nice day in the company of one son, with telephone calls from the other son and the favourite niece, who counts as a daughter.

    #1 son and I will put a day’s work in on the boat tomorrow if it stops raining.

    #2 son applied to join his University Officer Cadet Unit. On demonstrating a knowledge of gun safety he was asked if he had been a Cadet at school. He replied “Five years”, and didn’t add “in the Sea Cadets”.

    The surprise of the day came from the hon. daughter, who after years of being badgered to take part in various beauty pageants (beauty pageants are the only thing at which the Philippines leads the world - it’s a national obsession) and replying that as an intelligent young woman she had better things to do than totter around in six inch heels in a bikini,
    announced that she was entering her University pageant and furthermore that she was going to win it. Which I suspect she probably will. When asked what her “talent” would be, she replied “dancing - tango”, a skill that she had acquired at school but kept under wraps, because she has a “stage mother” who would have plastered snaps of her across socmed.

    My children assure me that I am as young and fit as I ever was, but the oldest of them first met me when I was 43, and the other two when I was 49 and 50, so they may be mistaken.
