A better day today - things get into proportion when you have slept on them I find. When I opened the curtains this morning it was to thick fog and although it has cleared the dullness has remained all day.
This afternoon friend W and I went looking for a very small table for my kitchen so that when I am alone and actually eating at home, I can sit in the kitchen and eat rather than carry my meal through to the dining room. We found just the thing.
Then we came home from Richmond the long way round, through Swaledale along a beautiful route by the side of the River Swale. I apologise for having no photos to show you but packing my battery charger was a stupid idea. We were hoping for Autumn colour in the trees but we were too early - almost all were still wearing their Summer green.
We made a slight detour to call in at a cafe for a pot of tea and a slice of cake (Victoria sponge for W and Coconut cake for me - both home made and both delicious). Home again by four o'clock.
It is almost beginning to get dark so it is close the farm gate, draw the curtains and feel cosy for the night. Just a cup of tea will do for me so feed Tess and then sit and do the Guardian Quick Crossword - my son has already done it today so must not let him beat me.
