Saturday, August 31
Last night Paul arrived from Belgium to work on the Snowcastle Valley programme with us. Today he has joined us at home to continue the discussions.
Summer appears to have returned and so we sit in the garden scrubbing new potatoes while Irma makes oven salmon. I look up at the sky as we chat and marvel at the absence of wind and the wisps of fluffy cloud, and the fact that I can sit outside in shorts and t-shirt at the end of August.
By the time he leaves for the airport we will have completed the equivalent of two full days of work, and everyone will know what everyone else feels and thinks.
