Hello again folks. Thanks for all those commiserations. At least my brain is more or less in gear today, which it has not been for the past ten days or so.
I find the trouble with these infections is that they always seem to disturb my thinking too, so it is a relief to have conquered another hill today.
Now all I have to conquer is the walking bit - arthritis in my ankle is very bad indeed, making me virtually unable to walk.
Weather-wise I seem to be missing absolutely nothing up here - one minute there is bright sunshine, the next it is raining. At present the farmer is walking with Tess on her evening walk - he left in sunshine, but you don't need me to tell you what it is like outside now.
Two fields of winter barley opposite have been cut. They didn't look anything like ripe to me, but the farmer says it is for forage and therefore can be cut ahead of time.
I shall sign off now - my brain has gone down into second gear and is getting tired, so best to stop while I am in charge. Take care - hope to be back tomorrow.
