Tomorrow and the next day are, hopefully, going to be very enjoyable days for me and I am so looking forward to them.
Tomorrow an old friend who now lives in Kent but is up in Ripon for a few days is coming up to see me. I haven\t seen her for a few years and we are going out for lunch together.
Monday a friend I used to teach with thirty four years ago is up in the North of England visiting
relatives. I haven't seen her and her husband in those thirty four years although we have always kept in touch by letters at birthday and Christmas. They are driving over to see me on Monday and again we shall be lunching out.
This means plenty of time to sit and chat and enjoy one another's company without having to prepare and serve up meals. I suppose I could have used my slow cooker to cook something, or I could have cooked something in advance and frozen it but these days - as I am sure all my followers know by now - eating out is a more favoured option.
What started out as a damp, windy and chilly day today ended up by around four in the afternoon as a still, sunny, warm, pleasant Autumn day. My washing dried outside on the line, I got two more tubs of pansies and polyanthus planted up and Tess and I had three pleasant walks. So altogether quite a fruitful day. Hope yours was too.
