Only three of us girls for coffee this morning - friend W had to take her car in for its first service.
Remember the days when we had to run our engines in and they had to have a first service after so many miles and all that rigmarole? Now it is just once a year and a two-hour job - things have come a long way.
I am still waiting for things to be finalised. If I let it concern me it will take over my life so I am just carrying on, meeting friends, going out for lunches, making the best of things. Yesterday I learned of more friends who are seriously ill - we really do have to make the most of each and every day while we are able to do so.
Two walks today so far - one before I went into town this morning and one down the pasture after lunch. The trouble with going down the pasture - good because I can take Tess off the lead and she likes that but bad because if I don't watch her she pushes into a large bank of thistles after the rabbits and last week when she did this she got a thistle seed in her eye. Luckily her eye watered so much overnight that the seed washed out.
Ukuleles tonight so I am now going to have a bit of a practice because I have not taken the instrument out of its case since last week. Tess seems quite impervious to the noise I make so I don't feel guilty. I am no George Formby (thank goodness) but I do like to do the best I can.
Tomorrow is our Poetry afternoon - one of my favourite afternoons of the month - anybody got any suggestions for Poetry I might read? Just to please Tom I might read 'Seasons of Mist and Mellow Fruitfulness' - what do you think Tom?
