Jessica became a British citizen today, and Sheila who had helped her with the application went to Manchester to attend the ceremony. Great that this somewhat complicated process is completed now!

I stayed in Mallorca. One of the things I like doing is walking barefoot on a sandy beach in the sun. I indulged this passion for three hours today on the beach in the Bay of Alcudia. In summer this is terribly crowded and full of sun umbrellas and chairs, today there were only a few other wanderers like me.
