Today has been cool, wet and quite unpleasant here, but when W and I went into Northallerton
it was much brighter, so maybe the really miserable weather was localised.
The reason for going to Northallerton? To buy my own ukulele!! Now I can return friend S's instrument and music stand and break in my own instrument. I have just played it for half an hour and find it very different although enjoyable and I am sure that after a bit more playing it will be more comfortable.
The other reason was to look for a new mattress for the bed. The mattress we had is about twenty five years old and well past its sell-by date. I have ordered a new orthopaedic one. For some reason the delivery date is eight weeks away but I don't suppose that time really matters.
Of course we had to have lunch out - a cheese and chorizo toastie with cole slaw and salad - absolutely delicious.
I do hope the weather improves. Someone who reads my blog (Frances?) has come up from Hertfordshire to Northumberland for a week's holiday. She did ask me to order good weather for them and yesterday the weather was so good that I thought the order I put in had done some good but looking at the forecast it looks to be all downhill from now on, so I do apologise for it. Be assured that we do get some nice weather up here.
