Poetry afternoon again today and all eleven of us were there. With all the trouble in the world I cannot tell you of a more relaxing and soothing afternoon than ours - sitting around in W's conservatory reading out our specially chosen poems - three each. Today many of them had a humorous flavour, which made for a lot of laughter. We are a group who know one another well and there is nobody who doesn't fit in - and that makes all the difference.
It is actually two afternoons because the day before I think we all spend a lot of time searching for what we are going to read out and getting just as much enjoyment from that.
I got home to find that the farmer had actually put on the central heating for the first time (as we have an Aga in the kitchen it is always warm in there, but the rest of the house was cold so he decided it was time to switch on.)
Delightful and so cosy. Come along Autumn - do your worst.
