H went to spend the weekend with his son and family watching rugby, playing cricket and having dinner. They””””””””””””””””ll have a great time. I””””””””””””””””ve had a rare treat… A visit to the exquisite cheese counter in Booths trying new cheeses and buying two to have with crusty French bread and salad later. Meanwhile, its breakfast in the garden. It””””””””””””””””s like being on holiday in France! Long may this weather last I say!
Glorious hot day. I waited til 5pm before a walk. 25degrees. I did a favourite 2-miler to Eden Lacy but it was VERY hot. Rosie was puffing and my face was the colour of a beetroot when I got home. Not a good look. But it was very lovely out there.
A wonderful song about a cat. These girls Red Ruff are brilliant. Saw them at a festival in May and loved them. http://youtu.be/tyBWtGUzhNs
Can it be true? There are only 500 ice cream vans left in Britain. In the 70s – 250,000
We have one visit our village every Friday at 5. Like clockwork!
Village sports day, fancy dress and floats starting at the pub. Always a hoot!
Then spending the afternoon with 2 of my fave people (and H!) at the lake. A good day ahead!
Hector got a ride in a VERY old and interesting car….
An afternoon at Glenridding with the wonderful Chrissie and Crusty (who had just completed the walk along Hadrians Wall that took one week) We swam in the Lake – when I say we – Chris swam and Chrissie and I ””””””””immersed”””””””” to our necks and wallowed!
Had a LOVELY walk with the lovely Heather at Edenhall. Good company and a nice place lifts a jaded heart!
21st July. Practically perfect weekend. Slept much of yesterday afternoon to try to catch up on many nights of lost sleep. So, was feeling good to go to see the ””””””””Scottish Play”””””””” last night with Sally at a screening in our lovely local independent cinema. It was stunning. Then we did something new for us, we sauntered next door to the new Indian Restaurant and had a very late dinner. Yum. We got home very late, almost 1 am. Great fun. Then a cooler night so actually slept around four hours. A record for me of late, so today felt good. As I lazed in the garden with the new Dan Brown book ””””””””Inferno”””””””” H got up late, as per, and came out to say he was making a full breakfast. Sausage butties and proper coffee for me and then he suggested a nice walk, so back to Eden Hall to do my current favourite 2-miler. Lordy it was HOT! At two pm VERY hot. Poor Rosie was panting like mad as we walked thru the big fields of crops in full sun so I carried her, but at the river we had a nice paddle. It was lovely too in the woodland above the river. Dappled light and birdsong and nobody else around. After that lazed on a lounger under the wisteria until it was time for some nice saluted pistachios and olives. It was all just like being on holiday.
For the first time ever I placed an online bet – on the Royal baby names (so convinced was I of the name for a girl!).
Hector went to London for the Olympic Anniversary Games. He had a great time. It was expected to rain at lot!, but I packed him a yellow plastic cape!
