Running repairs, floating away and into the past.

1. My glasses pop apart and while trying to repair them, I loose the screw. On the first day of a four-day holiday with so much computer work to do, this is not good. But I go into town in search of an opticians; find one open and discover they'll do the repair for a pound. Never have I been so pleased to see a lady holding a tiny screwdriver.

2. I pass a mother and a little girl in fits of laughter because their balloon on a stick has escaped and blown away down the road. In between laughing, the little girl shouts 'Save my balloon' and the mother warns her away from the road. A lady with grey hair and lots of shopping retrieves and crosses the street to bring it back.

3. Baby photos of respectable and dignified friends.
