Today was friend M's birthday and nine of us took ourselves off to a restaurant for breakfast.- delicious. We all had something different - I had 2 slices back bacon, 1 hash brown, 1 slice fried bread, mushrooms and a sausage. Couldn't fault it!
Home again and after an hour it was out to Poetry. Tess came too as friend S lives next door and had promised to take her (as S goes on holiday in the morning this was above and beyond the call of duty - so thank you sincerely S).
Poetry - nine of us - was a lovely peaceful and restful afternoon (just how I like it) and the choices - three poems each - were a perfect mix. We had lots of laughs, heard some poems we hadn't heard before, listened to some old favourites (Philip Larkin's 'Whitsun Weddings and Mary Oliver's 'Wild Geese' for example) and then finished with a slice of birthday cake and cheese for M's birthday.
The sun hasn't shown his face today, there is a breeze and it is chilly. I have just put the central heating on (sorry Derek, but my thin blood needs it). My visitor comes for the evening and overnight tomorrow, so I have just washed out the fridge and got it all ready to receive my Tesco order which should come in the morning between eight and nine o'clock. After that it is my Thursday hair appointment and a walk for Tess.
The Appleby Horse Fair starts early into June and caravans pulled by horses are beginning to appear on our roads and camped on grass verges for the night. If I spot one I will photograph it and put it on to my post.
