Just got back. Had to go to town and take my dog. My visitor has gone. Got crumpets too, ah well! I have a feeling he or she will be back tonight so will keep an eye out. Will get fish n chips if so
Last evening a girl of about 20 called...ostensibly presenting the Children's Society. She said she wasnt asking for money but then asked for support for a children's rescue home for abused children. It didn't sound quite right but she had ID. Maybe the visitor was her.
Had a "visitor" at the time of the eclipse down here and he had a story that was believable and one I was sympathetic about. He stayed another night ...not sure if it was actually 2 more nights...... He had his radio, sleeping bag etc and he had brekkie and hot meal in the evening. He was quite happy. We talked a lot and I think he just needed space to get his head around things. Gave him couple of quid for a lunchtime meal or two so he did pretty well. Told him he could come again but he eventually went on his way.
Look, we never know.....each of us....what will happen. Looking back, I'm sure we have all had rough spells when a helping hand, a kind word or gesture made all the difference.
Heck! What am I to do with all these crumpets? Will make a start on them now
