The most amazing thing.

No Power.

We've been without power for  hours and I had an adventure cooking eggs and tomatoes by  candlelight, and making toast over the fire.

William and Harold – the sharing of war Ideas.

HAS GIVEN HAROLD ARMS – HERE WILLIAM HAS COME TO BAYEUX – WHERE HAROLD… The pennon on Harold’s spear proclaims him a knight. He had agreed to aid William in his rights in England. In William’s mind he was looking forward to the crown: Harold could not have believed such a thing, and probably felt…
