Today was our jolly outing to Kirby Lonsdale to meet our friends P and D for lunch. We left here in murky, foggy weather and a temperature of five degrees. Crossing over the Pennines, just for a moment, the sun broke through - it is a long time since we saw it! But you will see from the photograph I took as we passed the Ribblehead Viaduct (photo specially for you Rachel) that there is still a lot of murky weather around.
After a delicious Italian lunch (including a Tiramisu pudding), it was a walk back to the car and the journey home via Sedbergh. It is one of our favourite outings.
When I arrived home it was to find that my gardener, D, had been here all afternoon, had cut my lawn and put in all the plants I had bought. My garden is beginning to look so much better and is already giving me such pleasure, so thank you D for the work you have put into it.
Now to go and watch Monty Don do it all so much better than me!
