Yesterday was a thoroughly wet and miserable day here but not cold. This morning there is a clear blue sky, a brilliant sunshine and it is ten degrees colder. So you takes your pick.
I never got round to putting a post on yesterday - apologies for that - time just caught up with me. I did think of putting one on later in the evening but my son called and we say chatting (arguing?) about deprivation. After moving up here from a large town in the Midlands where poverty and deprivation were evident, especially as I worked in a Comprehensive School in a deprived area, I suddenly found myself in a small town where there appears to be no deprivation at all. Everyone seems to be well dressed, well fed, in employment, no problems etc. This, of course, is not necessarily true - it is just that such things are hidden and it is easy to think that problems don't exist up here.
Tess had a very wet walk with her walker yesterday. I was out - having coffee with friends and then doing some shopping ready for my God daughter coming for the week-end (I am really looking forward to that). I usually go out for lunch every other Tuesday but by the time I had reached home, struggled in through the rain with my shopping, unpacked it onto the work top and towelled the dog dry after her walk it was almost half past twelve when the lunch starts, so I gave it a miss. I sat down with a coffee for an hour and regained my strength ready to wash out the fridge and store food in the freezer. Later friend W called to let me listen to her blue tooth ear pieces - marvellous clarity - I find listening to the radio impossible because of my hearing loss, but having ear pieces concentrated the words so well that I shall now seriously consider getting this facility.
And what does Wednesday bring. Well this is the day that friend S takes Tess for her afternoon walk - there will be great joy and tail wagging when S arrives!
