Sundays are quiet too now that I don't risk going out for Golf Club lunch. In many ways I miss it - most of all the company, but also the luxury of not having to cook my own food. But I kept another meal out of the freezer from my delivery - chicken and bacon in white wine sauce and I served it with a mixture ofparsnip , runner beans and leeks - the last two from a friends' garden. I have to say it was delicious. I also had the longest walk with Percy that I have had in a long time an my ankles feel much better for it.
I was back home (I stopped for a long time to chat to friend M - we are both members of the Book Group and got talking about books. ) in time to watch the final three hours of Le Tour de France - and I must say it was all very exciting. What incredible stamina those young men have and what a lovely speech the Irish lad who won the Green Jersey made. It was also a joy to see the parents of the young man (the youngest for 111 years I believe) who won there to cheer him on. They looked so proud of him.
Later this evening I watched the new three part play on BBC1 - it is called 'Us' and was a delight to watch I thought. Did anyone else watch it? If so do let me know what you think.
So apart from my walk and cooking my lunch I have really had a very lazy day with far too much television in it. I fear with the advent of the darker nights this may be the pattern of things to come. When I think of the craft work I used to do - the beading, the quilting, the knitting and crochet, the machine embroidery - none of which I can do now because of my shakes - I am sad. It's called 'getting old' and you have to fight it tooth and nail!!
