Plus, he was asleep, so I took advantage.

Can't believe we have daffodils blooming in the garden in February. Birds singing,too. Fair cheers you up. Spring is in the air.

A while ago I spotted something that could be terrorist related. (I have to be a bit cryptic here)
I saw it every day and my suspicions were raised.
I let the authorities know through the correct channels and when you go this route, you are told that you will never get any feedback.

Nothing changed for a week or so. The activity was still going on
Then one day a large tradesman's van was parked close by. Someone inside opened the side door and was shouted at to close it immediately.
I got a glimpse of the interior.
There were police in bullet proof vests etc and computer and monitor stuff.
I only ever saw this activity while I was walking by and when I came back, the van and activity were gone.
The activity has never returned.
If you ever see anything dodgy - be assured, they do investigate.

Maybe it was Police surveillance and you should've kept quiet.

Fifty-three years of marriage is absolutely astonishing these days.

Your marriage is a veritable Coronation Street in a world of Albion Markets.

Congratulations to you and Mrs Thynne.
