Sunday is one of the days when I have to take Tess for her walks. Luckily once I got going this morning .my ankles were not too bad and as I did my first walk of the day the sun was promising to come out so both Tess and I enjoyed it. On my return home I rang my old friend L to remind her that I was collecting her for our usual lunch. She is ninety-eight and apart from her short term memory is in near perfect health.
We stopped at friend W's and transferred to her car. My little car is only a two door and so her car is much better when there are three of us. Friend C comes from the other direction so the four of us meet up at The Golf Club for our usual Sunday lunch (today I had Penang Curry and (dare I tell you) instead of rice I had their delicious chips with it. For pud I had a chocolate brownie with cream. Then the four of us sat in the bar and had ourpot of tea and a chat. By the time I arrived home it was almost four o'clock and time to take Tess round for another walk.
Most of the time I had been away it had been raining heavily but luckily it had now cleared up, there was little or no breeze and it was a pleasant evening. After only a short while I met a friend and we strolled round together having a chat. She and her husband were greatly affected by the flooding up here at the end of July and hopefully tomorrow the contractors are arriving to put up some new skirting boarding. What a long time it all takes.
The News, as usual these days, was all pretty depressing. Personally I have no interest at all in the Prince Andrew affair and certainly don't choose to listen to it as headline news - like all the other news items today I can do nothing about any of it so I choose I suppose to bury m y head in the sand - I look upon that as the priviledge of my age.
My attitude now, at my age, is 'sufficient unto the day' - I apologise for it but that is how it is.
