Good morning, one and all. How are you today? It is way too early to see what the sky is like but BBC reckons loads of warm sunshine.
However, overnight, it was surprisingly cool and comfortable - I was happy about that, even though I've woken far too early.
Yesterday was absolutely lovely. I drove up towards and through Braintree and on to Petersfield Village where I met Suze (I was a bit late - she was very gracious!). We had a little wander around looking at some fascinating antique/retro stuff, some of which really brought back memories of childhood and my Nana's home.
Then we went into the Fox in the Stables tearoom and we were there pretty much for two hours and I don't think we stopped talking once, did we Suze? It was so lovely discovering how much we have in common. I brought the lap blanket I'm working on and Suze brought some wonderful applique cushion covers she is making for friends. Not to do, just a sort of adults Show and Tell (after all, we were both KS1/FS teachers). And Suze gave me the most delightful counted cross stitch card to say well done for the Woman of the Year thingy. We sat on a sofa rather than at a table - very comfortable and conducive to chit-chat.
Once back home again, I got the dry washing in but that was it - I couldn't be bothered to get anything ironed so I have that to do today.
I ended up just doing some more crochet and fighting off waves of sleep - well, it was quite hot! That's my excuse anyway.
Today, the first thing I am doing is popping into town. I need to go back to Specsavers to get my new glasses adjusted - they are just a bit too tight and the arms are just too short before they start bending and they're giving me a headache.
Once that's done, I will probably have a little saunter round and see what there is to be seen in all the usual places before coming home to tackle the usual household tasks.
And I MUST get up to date with finances too.
Just an ordinary, gentle day and none the worse for that.
Are you enjoying the renewed warm weather or is it a bit too much for you? xx
