Today was full of smiles. In the morning I saw the little boy with his happy face, and in the evening I saw my son, his wife and their twins. In the middle of the day I had a long journey, by bus, first train, second train, coach, third train, fourth train and car, from Cornwall to Swindon. The River Tamar was very lovely as I crossed from Cornwall to Devon. It sparkled in the sunlight.
