Slightly spooky .
First thing in the morning . The joiner shows up, unannounced , to repair the French doors onto the garden . It's so long since we called him that we've completely forgotten what we needed him for . He works for half an hour then disappears. " Just going to getting my soldering iron " . He returns late in the afternoon .
Evening walk with Wilf. On the village green the shooting gallery is still in place . Lights on, music playing , plastic ducks floating round and round and round. Apart from the two ladies cleaning out the village hall and the pigeons nesting on the church roof there is no one else around . I find this every so slightly spooky.
