Another busy day.
Now that I can drive again I seem to have got back into my old ways of dashing here and there - I shall have to watch it.
I have re-joined Wensleydale Writers' Group and there was a meeting this morning. I have not written for so long (other than this blog) so I think it is important that I give it a chance, to see if it rekindles my ability to write. H, at whose house we have meetings, had the most wonderful agapanthus in her lovely garden, so am posting a shot here for you to see.
This afternoon a friend, M, came up from Ripon and we went to the Wensleydale Sheep shop, which is at the bottom of our lane. I do love these little specialist shops. This one is a tiny one in the yard of a farm, where the owners keep a flock of Wensleydale sheep (black ones and white ones). They have out-knitters who knit garments for them, they have wool in variously dyed colours, patterns, bits and pieces made of wool, and (what my friend was looking for) 'tops' for felt-making. She has gone home with a large 'ball' of wool for felting so that she can make a teddy.
A cup of tea, a chocolate digestive and an hour's chat completed the afternoon. As she left it poured with rain but now, as I write, the sun is shining and it is a lovely evening.
