Lovely lunch with friends today, just as I expected it would be. Then after lunch N took Tess for a nice long walk while we 'girls' sat around dozing after eating too much food and drinking too much wine. At half past five Tess and I returned home.
Since then I watched Strictly Come Dancing with half an eye - except for the one or two couples who were outsstanding tonight and am now about to go to bed.
Yet another lovely Autumn day. I don't know how long these lovely days will go on for. I noticed on my walk this morning that the silver birch trees have now lost all their leaves and that the Siberian Crab Apple tree in one of the gardens near to my bungalow has just about shed all its plentiful fruits onto the footpath. And now early in the morning there is enough frost to show just how many cobwebs there are in the hedges and trees. Sitting at my friends this afternoon there were at least a dozen Goldfinches on her niger seed tucking into their favourite food.
Autumn really is such a lovely time of year isn't it?
