Old age and cracks in the wall

I turned 50 on Wednesday, which was a relief. The day was gentle and delightful. Jane’s mother took Jane and me for a nice lunch at Hunters Hall, then a birthday tea with Benjamin and candle blowing, plus a lovely pile of birthday presents that Benjamin opened with relish!

In the evening Jane took me to see the new James Bond film, Casino Royale, whilst Hannah baby sat for us.

When we came in, I noticed several long pencil marks had appeared on the freshly painted wall in the drawing room. Later, as we went to bed, Benjamin woke up crying. He that had drawn on the wall and it was playing on his mind, poor little fellow. I asked him why he had done it. “I want to make it look like there was a crack in the wall.” he said in a sleepy little voice. Bless him!
