I am going through a stressful time at the moment for various reasons - I have several things on my mind and at my age I can really not cope with more than one at once. So Saturdays, when I am usually alone for most of the day, are not favourites of mine. But today has been carried along nicely.
Friend W collected me just before nine and we tootled along to our Medical Centre for this year's flu jab - over in a minute and never felt a thing. I then came back to take Tess for her morning walk and to stop for a chat with the son of H, my dog walker who sadly died suddenly. As most of us suspected, she died of an Aneurism. The death was extremely sudden but of course has been a shock to everyone.
W called at two o'clock and together with another friend C we had an ice cream at our local Ice Cream Parlour (I had Liquorice and Blackcurrant and Clotted Cream - delicious) and then it was back home to take Tess for another walk. Then at seven my son and his wife came round and we had an Indian Take-Away. So a pleasant day after all. And after a wet start it has been a warm, sunny day with very little wind. It promises to be very wet tomorrow when the Mens' Elite World Cycle Chanpionship comes through.
