Sometimes I switch on and go to new post without the slightest idea what to write. Today is one of those days but I make it a point in the day when I really try to write something as a form of discipline. It is easy to become aimless as one ages and I refuse to get like that.
It is friend W's birthday today and instead of our usual four out to Sunday lunch we were seven - a jolly gathering.Then coming in and immediately taking Tess for a walk walks down my lunch (salmon today followed by lime and coconut sorbet) and means that I can come in, shut the door, turn up the heating and settle down for the rest of the evening (and watch Countryfile and Strictly Results of course).
The week ahead is set to be much milder than last week so maybe a few remaining planting jobs outside might get done. Now that I have been in my bungalow more than a year (just),things really seem to have settled into a pattern. The next job to tackle is the boundary fence - the dying hedge needs taking out and a fence building. I have it in hand and am waiting for the fencing man to call and see me.
