1. Catherine arrives while Bettany is asleep. We can talk, just the two of us, no guilt, no worry, for the first time in years.
2. I thank the postman as he hands me a parcel and some letters and he says "That always makes my day, when someone's happy to receive a package."
3. At the place where the pavement narrows just beyond the station I spot an office girl running down the hill towards us. I stop and let her go through. She has a smile for us, despite being in a headlong dash for a train.
