Number three stencilled on a lamppost.
Grandson Jacob brings a bottle of Sauternes, Rousset Peyraguey 2004 when he visits us yesterday. The name on the label signifies little to me, but the honeyed wine with a fine edge of acidity on the finish, lingers in the memory. As it happens I have baked a rhubarb meringue tart. It turns out to be a perfect match. Chance and generosity together make triumphal music.
Sport doesn't as a rule feature in my notes. With exceptions it brings in its wake nowadays too much noise and nastiness . But every now and then a sporting achievement transcends the unpalatable . I read with a lift of the heart that one Jordan Clark playing in a second X1 game between Lancashire and Yorkshire, last week became the fifth professional cricketer to score six sixes in one over. I wish I had been there.
