Sorry, in spite of my promise to return 'tomorrow' I just never had time yesterday, so here we are at tea time on Friday - the first time I have a few minutes to spare. This morning it was coffee with friends as usual and then home for about ten minutes and then out with friend W to go to a big Craft Fair in the town at our Auction House. Hundreds there and a long queue to get in which was well-directed so didn't take long. Huge crowds looking round so very noisy. Luckily we were walking on carpet so it wasn't too hard on my ankles and I managed to walk round reasonably easily. It wasn't all that exciting I'm afraid, although I had on my list to buy two presents for Christmas and I managed to tick those off so felt quite pleased with myself. Then it was down to The Three Horseshoes in Wensley for lunch - quiche, salad and chips for me and cottage pie with broccoli and carrots for W - delicious (they make the best quiche around). Then it was home.
It really has been a beautiful day here - full sun, no breeze and a clear blue sky all day and although the temperature was quite low there was a lot of warmth in the sun. But of course I have a white car and as I drove up to the garage door I realised just how very dirty it was. I had a sit down and a cup of tea, then Tess and I together drove the mile to the Car Wash where two nice young men made my car sparkling again. At last, after at least a month, the roads are dry today so it was worth a risk and I do feel better driving a clean car.
Now it is almost time for The Repair Shop (such a good and interesting programme) and I shall wish for no tea after that large lunch, but a cup of tea will be very welcome, so off to make one and then sit with my feet up and marvel at the absolute skill of the people doing the repairs. Hopefully see you tomorrow.
