I am glad you all like my new header and my new blog. For the record the view in the header is of Wensleydale and was taken by the farmer from the side of Penhill, our local hill. The two figures walking are his two walking friends as far as friend W and I can tell - C and R. They had many happy walking hours together.
Today has been an almost perfect early September day. There was a blip in the middle as we left our lunch place and the rain came down quite sharply for a minute or two, but then the weather improved again.
Lunch out today was delicious - king prawns and chorizo in a thick, home-made tomato sauce - served with herb-sprinkled garlic bread.
This evening Tess and I had a lovely walk for a long way down our Lane. The setting sun was low making it difficult to see but the breeze had disappeared and it was quite balmy.
I have packed one box today and shall now go and sit down with a cup of tea and read today's Times.
