So As I said I am recounting my trip from where I am living in Stroud. I am lucky to be living in the home of Alex as her lodger. Living with Alex and until recently her son Gabe – who just went back to school in Brighton and Ozzy the cat. I have the loft room. with great light. One of the many positive things about being with Alex and Gabe is that they both have American experience, to put it mildly, and are able to translate for me and explain the things I just don’t get.
