Summer has arrived for a few days at least. Such periods are often quite rare up here, so we have to make the most of them when they arrive.
The last couple of days have been pleasantly warm and sunny without being really hot. And in the early morning (when I am writing this) you can hear the silence - does that make sense, I hope so because there is no other way of describing the beautiful noise-free 'noise' outside. Have you ever noticed how different the sound is in the early morning from that in the late evening? I suppose the difference can best be described as 'fresh' and 'tired'.
Yesterday our exercise class was cancelled at short notice, so of course friend W and I exercised by ourselves (our jaws mainly as we ate delicious scones in a local cafe).
Tomorrow it is the journey over the top of the Pennines to Kirby Lonsdale in Cumbria to meet our friends for lunch. If the weather stays like this we should be able to see the tops of the Three Peaks for a change.
