    I must have missed this lovely tribute to your ex-husband, Sarah. At least he left a legacy that you can watch and enjoy, as well as your personal memories. That’s more than most of us manage.

    Thanks, Pete. It’s very comforting that Sara, his widow, and I have each other. Actually, I’ve just re-read it and burst into tears!

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
