I soon recovered from my over-reaction (see below). It’s amazing what a brisk walk in the sunshine can do to make you feel better. I then called in the Coop for some milk and was cheered up further by my first “bumping into” incident in Surrey. This is my ninth month of living down here half the week and for the first time I saw someone I know just randomly – I was picking up milk and he was buying bread. I know him from the pub where I mark the quiz, and I’ll see him again there shortly.
