At least I think it is Tuesday. When one is retired it is easy to muddle up the days and really I need pointers/markers to identify what day it is. Tuesday - alternate weeks - is that day when W and I go down to TOSH (The old school house), which is a community centre with all kinds of activities. Every other Tuesday lunch time A cooks a meal for whoever likes to turn up as long as they are over 60. Today it was lamb casserole.
A is a volunteer and gives her services (and provides the recipes) along with another lady who provides a pudding. Usually there are around a dozen of us there; we all get along well together and we have an hour and a half of chat and a delicious meal. Today the lamb casserole was delicious - the lamb had been provided by W; she has a few fields which she lets to a local farmer and he pays her in kind. Pud was Dutch Apple Cake and custard. Followed by coffee or tea the meal costs five pounds and worth every penny.
This afternoon there was a dancing group in the hall - another afternoon there is Tuesday club when members either have a speaker or play a vaiety of games. Our ukulele group meets there twice a month. There is a film every Friday night. These activities are all run under the auspices of the U3A which is very active in our area. This afternoon the Garden Club have gone on an expedition to Ampleforth.
Now I am home and shall watch Antiques Road Trip. I started to watch it last evening but fell asleep so need to catch up tonight. Then it will be time to take Tess for her last walk before we shut the bungalow up for the night and get warm and cosy. A sure sign that winter draws near.
