C tells me that we used to come up here as children, and whilst the cousins played on the castle I would read, invariably leaving behind clothing or other items they later had to fetch.  I feel faintly guilty, for anti-sociability and for forgetfulness – particularly as I’ve also forgotten to bring a book today and am reading my phone and sneaking peeks at her book. It’s cold and my fingers wish that I had brought gloves.
