Lovely lunch out at friend W's when her friends N,K and S came to stay. Lunch is made up of S's favourite things so was - Roast ham, chips, new potatoes, cauli, petit pois, asparagus, sprouts - lots of mustards and sauces. This was followed by one of her famous fruit salads of various berries, pomegranate seeds - a bright, jewel-like mix of fruits with ice cream and/or cream or if you preferred sticky toffee pudding (the original Cartmel variety) and then coffee. By this time Storm Brian had sent us buckets full of heavy rain so we just sat and chatted until half past four when I came home. Tess took one look outside and decided that she just didn't wish to go for a walk this evening thank you. I shall now sit and read The Guardian and then do a few more packing jobs. Tomorrow is another day. Only 5 more nights sleeping here.
