I decided to visit my old friends back where I had lived most of my life. I know to some of you 350 miles will seem a short distance, but my 350 miles showed up big differences. The pace of life is busier and faster than I have grown used to to in the north of England.
Also the season was further advanced – the daffodils were over, mine are still in bloom, the trees were further into leaf. I also saw grey squirrels, we are trying to encourage the red ones up here.
So we are a small country, but we see great differences.
Carol, the traveller again.
