At home, England
Arrived at Gatwick at 0720 and finally got home at noon.
Waiting on the mat was a postcard from Ben, with a picture of the Santa Monica pier, on the back of which he’d scribbled;
Thanks to standby, I’m in your favourite place. Wish you were here with me and not lover boy, oops, did I really say that! Hope to see you before crimbo, lashings of love and all the good stuff xxx
I tore it up and threw it in the bin.
