The day was a grey drizzly sort of day. our son in law likes using , as we do, croft Autos for car repairs. His car was booked in today. Hew went for a round of golf for the first part of his stay and then came to us for lunch until the car was finished.

Keeping up with lockdown rules he sat on an old chair in the garage eating a bacon sandwich and we stood outside in the drizzle.

TV was good with Gogglebox. 

Somehow a very tiring day.
