453 Village Life

The harbour was surprisingly busy this morning. There were two small fishing vessels heading out with one coming in. The Pilot vessel was behaving unusually. It was loitering and cam to a stop towards the harbour entrance. I can only think this was to allow the Amourique to come in. Once the Brittany Ferry has passed through the pilot cutter resumed its exit.

Whilst we were on lockdown (and we still are, to a more or less self imposed degree – with relaxations) when we started doing some binge watching of boxsets. One of the earliest we worked through was Downton Abbey. I have to say, we were completely addicted and watched barely anything else. This included the inter-season specials. There were 52 episodes including the specials. Actually, it didn’t take us long to get through the 6 seasons. We were devastated when it finished, we had come to love most, and hate some of the characters. It was wrapped up in the film. During the series, we got to learn about both levels of the house, above and below stairs.

Elayne was given a book about Village life in the 19th & 20th centuries. Of course I grabbed it immediately. It was fascinating to read about the life of people during those times. The conditions in which they lived we can’t help comparing to today. The comforts of housing; heating, lighting, clean water, waste disposal, and yes new, recent additions starting with the telephone, progressing to radio, television and today broadband are beyond compare with the house of a hundred years ago.

Of course, we now have the time to wonder how people a hundred or more years from now will be living. I wonder.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
