Our little market town is very busy today; busy because it is a local 'Food and Drink Festival'. One of the roads through the Market Square is closed off and tents and stalls have been put up in order to show the best in food and drink in our area.
There are of course some things which need no advertising - Black Sheep Ale, Wensleydale Cheese for example - but there are various artisan producers who take this as an ideal opportunity to show off their wares.
Rather than find somewhere to park in the town I decided to go in super-early. I was there by eight o'clock this morning to post an important letter,
buy The Guardian, fill up with petrol and then take Tess for a walk down the Lane. By the time we got to the Lane at nine o'clock, it was almost too hot for her to walk - so for the rest of the day we are just lazing about at home.
Because the boiler engineer is coming to service the boiler on Monday morning I decided to do the week's washing today and it is merrily blowing on the line in what breeze there is.
And I am reading The Guardian. So many pages are still taken up with the terrible fire in London - pages which make almost unbearable reading - it just makes me realise what a different world we live in up here.
Enjoy your week end whatever you may be doing.
