The temperature has suddenly dropped. When the sun is out there is still a lot of heat in it, but when the clouds roll in it is chilly. I fear that Autumn has arrived. I love Autumn but just do not feel ready for chilly days yet. Also, I am loath to light the wood burner because the room is full of boxes, so I prefer to stay in the kitchen. I think the central heating may go on in a minute as well as the heat from the Aga.
Lunch out with friend W today - smoked haddock fish cakes with a dressed salad (garnished with a pansy flower), then it was home to take Tess down the silaged field - lovely to walk on short grass. She could even see rabbits worthy of being chased so had one or two good runs.
My daughter in law has had an operation today - she had to be at hospital (sixty miles away) for half past six this morning. My son has just rung (he has stayed down there all day) to say she is back on the ward, he was sitting with her and she was eating her tea!
No more work tonight - some drawers cleaned out this afternoon, lots of things sorted, some thrown out, some filed away and another feeling of satisfaction at something done. Now, at half past seven, a restful evening is planned.
