Another Friday, another week gone by, another week when nothing seems to be moving, another week of frustration. But there is nothing to be done; these things take time and I must just be patient. The trouble is that the word 'patience' is not normally in my vocabulary and I am therefore finding it very difficult. Most of my boxes are packed and I am ready to go. The plumber is ordered to alter the bathroom and the patio doors are ordered. Now I must just sit back and wait.
I have decided 'no more boxes for a few days' - I shall do other things. I have a new step-great grandson arrived yesterday (a little boy, no name as yet) so tomorrow I shall make it my business to fill up with petrol and then go and find him a welcome present.
Today, after our usual coffee morning friend W and I drove up the Dale to Hawes and had lunch in The Creamery. The Wensleydale Creamery was created some years ago when there was a Management Buy-out. It has gone from strength to strength and now has a lovely cafe and shop. We had grilled ham topped with Wensleydale cheese and pineapple, served with chips and salad. We finished off with a cup of coffee and then drove home through a beautiful Wensleydale. How lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place. I have so much to be thankful for - I must not lose sight of that.
