Not feeling all that well at the moment . I relaxed in bed for an extra hour then got up in leisurely fashion, showered and took Tess for her walk. On my return I sat down with a drink and dozed off - quite unlike me. Then I cooked myself a lunch, slipped and ended up on the kitchen floor. I didn't hurt myself but had difficulty getting up. I rang my son but he wasn't at home so I struggled and I made it - which was pleasing.
After lunch friends S and T called to take Tess for a walk - so kind of them - and I went with them to the Reservoir. I settled down in one of M's folding chairs (I don't possess any but M, who lives next door, lent me one for the afternoon) with my book (The Good Immigrant (a collection of essays - very interesting)). The sun was pleasant and it was a restful afternoon. We called for a cup of tea on the way home too, which was nice.
Rain is expected, but so far (7.30pm) we have had only a few meagre drops and we really need a downpour. Our gardens are crying out for it. Hopefully it will arrive overnight.
