Hello and greetings from a sunny day on the East coast.
The weather has turned back again and it is glorious outside, so the washing is done and hanging out.
We cannot believe we have three clusters of new buds on the Ancient mariner of 5, 6 and 7, Maggie’s rose has another two, Peace has one bloom out and another two to come, and the final red one on the In Loving Memory bush is just going over. It has been a tremendous show from all of them this year.
I had a card from my aunt in the post yesterday and the charity it supported was the Alternative Animal Sanctuary which was about a mile up the road from where we lived in the cottage! I wonder if she was aware of that, and I shall mention it when I next write.
Being Sunday, sunny and the music Tribute Band festival going on, we anticipate town will be heaving, so are content to stay home and plod. We like ploddy days as before we retired we had very few and always seemed to be doing something for someone, or having to be somewhere.
Lunch is a cottage pie and hopefully will be enough to do two days. I don’t think I’m making bigger meals though, just that we don’t seem to want so much. This is obviously good for the diet, Hubby not overloading his tummy, and me managing to keep my weight in check. I’ve maintained this week so am well pleased with that.
