Friends have been across from the Lakes for lunch today and took this up to date photograph of Tess. I thought you might all like to see her as she has not featured photographically for quite a while. You will see that she is still going strong. She is always so pleased to see visitors, particularly like those today who love her.
My yesterday's Guardian news paper sits untidily under the chair in the kitchen. I am trying to finish the Quick Crossword which is not living up to its name today and has become the Slow crossword as there are one or two I just can't finish.
The temperature is decidedly cold and it keeps raining then sunshining - altogether a rather stormy day. The friends have come over here today rather than meet us in Kirby Lonsdale, but we do intend to try and get one more meeting there before the Winter. We never attempt to go once we get to mid October; going across the high Pennines at that time of year (and then until April next year) is always a bit foolhardy.
No more information as yet on the moving front but I am hoping it happens in the not too distant future - this time lag is beginning to sap my will to live quite frankly. Thank goodness for friends and family.
Tomorrow the lady who cleans for me is coming back. She has not been for a month as she has not been well. I am very pleased to see her return - it is only when she is away that I realise how lucky I am to have her.
