I am writing with increased compulsion as I reach the climax of Darx Circle, which is currently at 118523 words, including a recent addition of a 220-word rhymed section from a ‘Minstrel’s Saga’.
The only things done in between over the weekend were, firstly, a visit to our People’s Park at the Stadium, where young R is pictured on her bike and holding my scooter which I scooted round with her on. Those things are serious fun, by the way, even for someone comfortably into their seventies. We covered a great deal more distance than her sister, mother, father and grannie.
We also visited our local golf course, some five minutes away from home, for a bite to eat. This is worth doing more often.
Yesterday, young R and I swam 500 metres nonstop in training for the 800-metre badge she hopes to earn before she turns six. She was still four when she got the 400-metre one.
She has just been accepted for next year at a prestigious and very choosy local Primary School, which we are delighted about.
