Other half most pleased to see mother yesterday evening, especially given story recounted that arrival almost two hours late. Incurred displeasure of both nee Miss Payne and Mrs Payne with regards to approval for opening suitcase. Can see this week will have endurance of "ex-Payne and a Bitty Payne". Great disappointment that can't share this witicism.
Further disappointment occurred on having meal compatible with tinned
mince for dinner.
