Hello. I seem to have done a lot of chatting this weekend. That's what happens when you live in a village and know a lot of people. I popped in to see Angela, she is into furniture refurbishment. I don't know how she does it but she always drops lucky in finding things that people give away. Someone wanted to get rid of a full set of cane furniture which is suitable for a conservatory. Settee, two chairs, coffee table and footstool. The cushions were shabby so she has made new ones from some curtains she bought for £1 from the charity shop. She has made a good job of them. I don't think she will have any trouble selling them.
I had a natter with Bob, he was at the bowls club having a practice to get in shape for the start of the season. I had a go but didn't do too well, my right wrist is a bit achey. Probably too much time on the mouse that causes that.
I took Bailey dog a walk today and popped in to see Jane, she has not been very well. We sat in the garden and had a natter. The sun has been shining all day, it's been lovely and warm.
My three mile walk took a bit longer this afternoon, my fault, more chatting. Because I walk the same route all the time people are getting used to seeing me, and the sun was bringing people outdoors, so they say hello. Sometimes a simple greeting leads to a lengthy conversation, that's mainly down to the fact that I like chatting. Truth is I can't resist a good looking fella, especially one with a gorgeous smile :o)
I've got a few snaps for you. On Friday I changed my routine and did a six mile walk, I've done this one many times before. Walking past the woods it looks as if this tree has come a cropper and been blown down in a storm. The woods are in pretty poor shape at the moment. When I first came here I thought it was magical, there are steep steps down into it and it's on a steep slope. Over the years it has been wrecked. I used to do a lot of litter picking here, mainly beer cans and bottles, but it is disheartening to find it is just as bad a couple of months later. There was only one path through it, now there are several unofficial paths where the ground has been trampled on.
This is a new bench, I haven't seen this before. A nice place to rest and take in the view. A bit further along I came across three men flying their model aircraft. I don't know how they manage to get them back if they crash land them in the river.
Thank you very much to the kind reader who sent me a parcel of goodies. I am chuffed.
Relax time. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
