Tuesday

A very haphazard e mail connection means that sometimes I can get on to my e mail page and sometimes I can't.   Just as I was about to get on the phone to my computer engineer up comes a message on the screen from BT to say it is all their fault and they are trying to deal with it today.   So far no improvement.

In the garden plants are growing apace in spite of the fact that the temperature here in North Yorkshire is only seven degrees - and that is when the sun is out.   Mr and Mrs Blackbird are both searching my front lawn for food, which surely points to babies wouldn't you think? 

Yesterday Tess and I had a pleasant ride out over the Pennines to Sedbergh, around thirty miles away, to meet my God-daughter, A, for a pub lunch.   (ham, leek and potato soup with a smoked trout sandwich on sourdough).   It was six degrees when I left here and twelve degrees in Sedbergh - and bright sunshine with it.   A nice hour's chat and then back again (temperatures still the same on my return and sunshine in the West, mist and cloud here). 

Today I am determined to do various administrative jobs - so far done one or two and after tea I intend to do one or two more.   My 'in tray' is so full I need to move a few things on and clear some space, both in that tray and in my brain.

I like the sound of your pub lunch. Definitely worth the trip. We have had sunshine on and off over here today and warmer too, around 15C. I hope your corner of the country warms up soon!

Why is it that when things go belly up on our computer, we immediately blame ourselves? Glad you're back.
Wish I could have joined you for a piping hot bowl of ham-potato-leek soup. Yum.

Your lunch sounds delicious. Spring has definitely sprung here. It's been a beautiful few days. X

I have felt quite cold most of today and it has been very overcast. Looking forward to another dose of sunshine. Spring is being very capricious this year.
Hope your computer behaves itself from now on, and I am glad you enjoyed your lunch trip.

Computers can be quite frustrating. It's a good time to get out for a drive and lunch after dealing with all that! I think it is so nice that dogs can go in so many pubs there as they can not here. Any place that allows pets seems to be much more homey and comfortable.

Forgotten what the sun and warmth are like down here on Sheppey. All we've had for several days is cold, mist, rain and gloomy light, looking forward to Spring.

I enjoyed my weekend, I think I used most of it positively for a change

How I wish I had flowering plants to enjoy. It will come.

It's not been the most Spring-like of Springs this year, has it? We should all take a tip from Mr and Mrs Blackbird and just get on with life no matter what the weather.
