Well all you folk there in the South East - I think, after reading your posts, that we have got off quite lightly up here. Yes it has been windy and yes it has rained all day (and probably all last night as well) but not in sheets and although it is wet and soggy everywhere the wind has now more or less died to a breeze and the rain is just a light showery rain and there is a feeling that just perhaps it is going to be a bit better tomorrow. We shall have to wait and see.
I had lunch (fish and chips) out with a friend D today at Tennants Auction House in Leyburn (Google it if you want to see our fantastic Auction House) and afterwards we wandered round an exhibition of the work of William Morris. What a talent and how timeless his designs were - they lose none of their beauty as time goes by and are as fresh today as they were when he was alive. I think of them all perhaps 'The strawberry thief' is one of my favourites.
It is an image familiar to everyone.
H took Tess for a long walk this evening, brought her back and came in for tea and cake and a chat, and that passed a nice couple of hours . On grey days like this it is nice to sit and chat to someone when one lives alone. Now it is almost time for a programme I want to watch on Dementia - how good it is that at last we are all able to talk about it. It is out in the open and much better for it.
