On Sunday my husband and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely Sunday lunch at a country pub near us, The New Inn at Kidmore End. Afterwards went for a walk and stopped to take photos of the duck pond. It reminds me of an old gentleman I looked after in my nursing days, who was brought up here, in this very house. He had a beautiful painting of his childhood home and often told me stories of his escapades with his eight brothers and sisters, he was the youngest of the nine.
