It must be a sign of maturity to be on guard all the time. I speak carefully, stay encouraging and positive. I avoid those dreadful topics which do not go well.
The most important thing is to leave quickly before any slide into honesty and openness. Gay smiles and bright comments are a brilliant shield.
However I stayed just that bit too long. Seethed for miles on my fast drive out of London.
Then the music on the radio took my mind away. The fields round here are stunning, the harvest has started. The rolling open hills are soothing. Being back is great. Top Gear is a bonus!
