Good afternoon everyone.
The day started wet and cool, so we decided to take a field trip early and were certainly glad we did.
We didn’t need a lot, apart from fueling the car as diesel can vary by as much as 5p a litre within a ten mile radius. I know it’s not exactly practical to travel miles to save a few pence on fuel, but when there are other things to do, well it pays to top up at the same time.
Masks are practically a thing of the past as we were two of about 10 people in a crowded supermarket wearing one today. We didn’t hang around longer than we had to, and left a pack of 10 eggs on the counter as no-one came when we hit the help button on a self service till.
We got most of what we wanted overall, and the pickled beetroot can wait until next time.
Coming home, the sun had come out and with it the tourists as traffic going into the town was bumper to bumper.
Lunch today was salad and a fritatta for me, and pasty and cabbage/tatty cake for Hubby. I decided to stew the apricots I’d picked the other day, but they were too tangy and sharp for Hubby so he grated a banana to go with his custard instead and I now have two pots for the freezer for a later date.
Our plans are for a quiet weekend as we kiss goodbye to July and welcome August. I shall be writing my monthly Hello letters to our friends this evening.
