All of that stress was well worth it though. Our lives are so different down here. The air is clean and smog/exhaust free. The evenings are peaceful, its a rarity to see an aircraft in the sky overhead, unless it's a coastguard, on a rush job to save a holiday maker from the cliffs, and every Wednesday evening we get the faint drift of the church bells in Carn Brae village, as they practice their ringing for the weddings etc.

We have 200 kitchen tiles, a tub of adhesive and an exercise bike (a little dusty you will notice) and still he manages to get into his favourite spot. ....... OK he had to climb onto the bookcase to get there, but hey ho - he did it anyway!

As it is, I did actually win something, and chose this lovely begonia. The bonus was the bar of Bourneville dark chocolate we found hidden inside the cellophane cover!
A fantastic night was had by all, despite my tired eyes by the end of the evening.

and as it came back down for the final time at the end of Act III to enchantment ended, and I became a 40 year old again.
It was a wonderful evening, and the Duchy Ballet should be very proud of themselves for the fantastic performance they gave us.
