A friend is 'home alone' this week as her OH is away so we arranged to meet up for coffee today and a browse around the shops. I enjoyed putting on some makeup and dressing up a little, something I don't usually bother with if I am staying at home.
I parked in the village close to where she lives and enjoyed a 15 minute walk to her house. It was a typical autumn morning. Sunny, crisp and breezy but still pleasantly warm-ish.
She drove us into town and we spent a very pleasant 3 hours having coffee and sharing a slice of banana and pecan loaf before strolling around the shops.
I tried to ignore all the Christmas merchandise that is already out on display- we haven't even had Halloween yet for goodness sake!
I am so glad to be going away next week and leaving the Christmas overkill behind for a few weeks.
