Lovely jubbly

Charlie and I are in Jaipur for a month on business. Today, we’ve been out for a stroll after lunch and happened upon many of Rajasthan’s top Anglophiles.

Dear Gran

My nana passed away yesterday. She’d been experiencing the waking dream that is dementia for a while. I loved her very much; she was calm, kind and compassionate. Everything a grandmother can be to her grandchildren. Dear Gran. I’m sorry that I couldn’t visit more often. Please forgive me. Thank you for bacon, cheese and […]
