Today really has been the most perfect day in terms of the weather. After waking up to a wet morning here in North Yorkshire, within an hour the sun was shining and it has been wall-to-wall sunshine all day. There was a slight cool breeze but in the sun it was still quite warm.
Our morning coffee meeting - three of us today - passed off nicely as usual; plenty of laughs, plenty of chat, good coffee and delicious toasted teacakes. Then it was home to cook lunch and the afternoon catching up on blogs, ordering a sweater from M and S as a birthday present from the farmer, ordering new cartridges for my printer, and welcoming (and chatting to) the lady who called to sell us our poppies.
Now there is just about time to empty the dishwasher, feed the dog, get a salad ready for tea and put my feet up in time to watch 'Flog it'.
I really was overwhelmed by everyone's birthday greetings yesterday - thank you all so much. I also had lots of cards and letters from friends - all of which added up to a very nice day indeed.
