Today has been what has become a normal Sunday - four of us going out for Sunday lunch. We have now gone to the Golf Club for so long that we know a lot of people and there are always folk to chat to. Also today, after a bit of a misunderstanding over a Parking problem we made friends with another group of four people and had a good laugh with them. When you live alone this chunk of almost four hours out of the middle of the day helps enormously. (half an hour in the bar sipping our pre-lunch drink, an hour eating our lunch, then the rest of the time back in the bar with a tray of tea and coffee just chatting).
I always come straight in and take Tess for her walk so that is done for the day.
Today's lunch for me was a Vegetarian Lasagne with garlic bread and salad. It was delicious and I shall attempt to make it myself.
The ' season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' (ha-ha - you know who you are) has really hit with a bang today. It is damp and cool and the breeze is beginning to get to 'wind' force. The leaves are falling from the beech trees in showers.
Friend W has just rung to tell me there is a programme on the poet Charles Causley on BBC4 tonight - Auden last night and Causley tonight - two of my favourites - what a treat.
Time for Tess's tea - goodnight and sleep well.
