Steve, l found some old photos of me - l think about 54 yrs ago. They were taken when we were on holiday - camping and l was making friends with a lovely donkey. Now - this week at last l have my own donkeys. The camera was a little box Brownie - and the film, was developed at home, by my dad with a ‘kit’ he had bought. Super pics - and they have never faded. l think l prefer the old type camera with a film that you had developed. So good to have the actual snaps at hand.
Love to Sussex - l use to live in a little village between Arundel and Worthing. Miss it terribly. Since l left the roads have become so busy. Now l am in Worcs/Wark borders - and it is much quieter. The Cotswolds and Malverns are wonderful - but still miss not being able to get to a beach and of course the South Downs Way.
Now we are surrounded by Felix Dennis’s forest. Before he died - he planted 3,000 acres of open countryside to hard wood forest. lt is surrounded by deer proof fencing. lt will not be grown in my lifetime - and l am not sure l am in agreement with it. l do realise it is to help with global warming. But the loss of the view! Felix Dennis made 1/2 £Billion which is left for this forest. Most of his money was made from porn!
