My posts at present seem to be all complaining about the weather. Day after day of rain, fog, no sun, chill wind - today has really been the pits. For about an hour this morning I was able to see East Witton Fell from my window - beautiful. Then the fog came down and the miserable rain started and so it has been all day. Tess had her long walk with J, her dog walker, (reluctantly) so at least I don't have to go out with her again - I went very early this morning so she has had two walks and can go out in the garden later.
What have I done? Well I drove into town as usual this morning, went to the Bank, had coffee with friend E and then drove down to the Garage and asked them to check my tyres which they are always happy to do. I came back to a nice clean bungalow as my cleaner J had been while I was out. After cooking and eating lunch - my resolution is to cook more proper meals if I dont lunch out so today I cooked sausage, mash with onion gravy, sprouts and carrots - it was delicious.
And this afternoon I made a start on writing my Christmas cards so I feel I have had quite a productive day. Tomorrow is our Poetry Group so in the morning I shall have to choose my poems - I already have one - November by Robert Bridges as suggested by Sue -such a lovely, evocative poem.
Thanks to all those who suggested possible books for my Book Group (it is my turn to choose) - I am so grateful and now have a credible list to present on Monday morning. Some months I don't read a single book which I consider good enough for discussion and this month has been like that. I shall now go and watch 'Our Yorkshire Farm' and put my feet up - the curtains and blinds are drawn so I can forget that weather.
