I seem to be losing track of the year and the public holidays so far. This one crept up on me suddenly.
Friday evening we invited our friends over for a takeaway supper. One couple volunteered to pick up our orders on their way over and we were all ready and waiting, beers and bubbles in hand, when the food arrived. We provided a cheese platter and a fruit salad in case they were still hungry afterwards. It was a lovely evening with lots of interesting conversation and good humour.
Today (Sunday) I met three of the girls for a walk. It was dry bright and sunny but with a cool breeze. Just right for walking. We walked up the steep lane to Slieau Whallian then followed the old railway trail back to St John's.
It was only an hour and a half walk but I have been suffering recently with my hay fever so my lungs were a bit congested and couldn't manage any more steep climbs. I managed coffee and cake afterwards at Green's though.
P is taking part in a fell race this afternoon so I have showered and am enjoying a few peaceful hours of solitude . He had already left before I returned home so I had a brief wander around the garden, checking on the progress of the bluebells and pansies. (Excuse the rubbish photos. I am tired).
I am making a pork and apple casserole this evening which should be quick and easy to prepare. Another "bung it in a pot" meal.
Wake me up when it's time to go to bed.
