Dear Lady Gray,
It was so nice to see you and Sir Donald last Friday. I trust that Sir Donald has recovered from all the excitement. Frankly I thought that three cameras was overdoing it a bit – but such is the enthusiasm of youth.
Nice to see Sir Donald's improved mobility. You where quite right, he does get a bit frustrated with walking around in circles. But as you said, once he gets the other hip done, straight lines will be possible.
I was quite shocked to see Sir Donald driving a car again (but not half as shocked as the car). I am afraid I am unable to explain the unfortunate incident with not being able to lock the car because the engine was still running. This despite having the car keys in his hand. Do you think he's been hot wiring his own car again?
The good folks at Yeovilton have made several improvements following last years difficulties. The PA speakers where mounted at a low hight so giving us a clear arc of fire. In fact they where just as we left them last year after Sir Donald had finished doing the local modifications – so no need for the cutting gear this time.
Another improvement was that ice cream was back on the menu !!! Thanks for reminding me about the old pills in the ice cream trick – that got the meds down the old duffer a treat.
As you warned me – getting Sir Donald to sit down was difficult enough – getting him to stay down was another thing entirely. I'm sorry about the rope burns – hopefully they will have faded by the time he is next due on the Antiques Road Show.
Thank you once again for the wonderful supper. I have no idea how you manage to fit in all the cooking – with just now being the hight of your tourist season at Gray Towers.
As per your request, I have attached an invoice for my days work. As agreed I have billed you at my standard Child Care Day Rate.
