How quickly Fridays come round - Friday and our coffee meeting of friends in The Post Horn Cafe. This morning we were virtually all there - eleven of us (we do make rather a lot of noise!) - and following on from this friend W and I went out to The Three Horseshoes and had a delicious lunch - (W - Spare ribs and me Quiche - both with their lovely chips!)
I think everyone around here in our part of the country is entirely sick of the strong wind blowing in straight off the cold North Sea. Today it is wall-to-wall sunshine but still very cold because of the wicked wind coming from the North East.
And I expect Thelma (North Stoke on my side bar) is feeling it even more up there on the North York Moors.
I must say that the countryside is 'greening up' in spite of this. I was pleased with my walking ability this afternoon. I am having to walk Tess on three walks a day - only short walks but they are getting longer each day and today I managed down the pasture and back up the next pasture. And I saw three Ladies' Smocks out and a handful of Buttercups - a sure sign that Spring is really here. In addition to that there are two swallows in residence in the yard, along with a pair of pied wagtails. The farmer would have been in with this news.
Tomorrow is our Church Coffee morning - how the months fly by.
