Sunday again.

How quickly Sunday comes round.   I think the weeks fly by, probably because I am always busy and also because I do quite a few things on the same day each week.

Sunday is, supposedly, the 'day of rest' - not so here.  If the weather is reasonably clement I suppose the farmer will be weeding the front garden, carefully avoiding going anywhere near the pheasant sitting on her eggs.   But at the moment it is very dull and rain is forecast.

Last evening we had a pleasant visit from my son and his wife, who live near, and their guests, The Solitary Walker (see my side bar) and his wife, who happens to be my niece.  Nice chatty evening over a bottle of wine.  There was a lot of ground to be covered as we have not met 'in the flesh ' for around fifteen years.   But, funnily enough, blogging with him regularly makes it seem as though we have met quite often over that time.

I know I have said it before, but it is worth repeating, but a blogging 'friendship' with a like-minded person certainly adds a new dimension to the term 'friendship'.   How often I have met folk that I blog with and found that I get on really well with them, as though I have known them for a long time.

My job today is to prepare the 'books' for the accountant - it is our year end.  I keep putting it off, but today I am filled with determination.

Good luck with doing the books Weaver. About which I can only offer what a colleague of mine used to say about the same subject "When in doubt
be creative"

I'm putting off the books. It takes ages even if I earn a few hundred pounds! You're so right about the blogging friendship thing - meeting up with Jess from Rusty Duck last week was lovely.

Great that you had these visits of Dominic and his wife, as well as Robert and Carmen. I agree with you entirely about the joy and durability of blogging friendships with like-minded people. Counterintuitive, but true.

I don`t envy you Doing the Books.

I have an online natural horsemanship forum to thank for some of my dearest friends. A small group of us have been chatting and supporting each other for years now and have met up fairly regularly.

Blogging friendships are also a great way to meet like minded people and I can understand how you felt that you knew The Solitary Walker so well.

It`s pouring with rain again here. April showers.....

I have discovered some lovely virtual friends since I began my blog, and would miss them terribly if I had to stop. Good luck with the book-keeping - I hope the task is not as onerous as it sounds.

Great to see you, the Farmer, Dominic and Karen, Pat! This morning we had a (muddy) walk around the village fields. Arrived home early this evening with good memories of Beningbrough Hall, your stunning cake and craftwork, and Dominic's jazzy double bass lines and Masterchef-worthy cheese on toast :)

As a certifiable hermit, blogging provides me with most agreeable contact with good people like yourself, P. Most appreciated.
