I’ve been working at my desk all day and the date keeps popping up as I write cheques and letters.
The 5th November. It is a familiar date. Is it’s someone’s birthday. I check, but no. The 5th November …..
It has just twigged. It’s Guy Fawkes day. Bonfire night.
How could I have forgotten? I lived in France for just nine years and already these familiar dates and customs are slipping away.
NO I won’t let it happen. Just off to build a bonfire and to unearth some sparklers !!
