being privileged to experience the buglessness of England

Couldn't help noticing that both flats we stayed in during our trip -- plus the ones we had last time we were here -- did not have window screens. And we left the windows open at all times... and yet never once had a bug get into the place. Can't get away with that back home.

Plus, I noticed many many groups out picnicking in the various parks we saw (scant wonder, the weather was perfect for it). But not once did I see anyone swatting at skeeters or waving away wasps, which back home would occupy the majority of my time, energy, and attention during a picnic. Being free of the annoyance of bugs seemed almost magical!

 meeting Paula Needle

She agreed to come over from Harrogate to York to meet Sharon and me for tea. [Ended up being "just me", but that's another story...] Prior to this, she and I had exchanged a couple of brief PMs on FB but that's about it, it's not like we know each other much. But she has always been very kind via long distance, saying nice things about my art, helping to arrange for me to receive a limited edition Sulk CD, etc. (One of the members of Sulk is her son, and she seems to appreciate my support of his band.)

Anyway, I'm grateful that she was willing to put herself out for my sake... and I'm grateful that I was willing to push past my comfort zone and my shyness and make this "date". I don't do things like this normally [meeting people I don't or barely know], but I can see that this is a useful social skill for me to develop. I had a lovely time [hope she did, too] and I ended up extremely glad that this meeting happened -- it was one of the high points of my trip.
