Meeting friends


Yesterday I went into town on the early bus and met a couple of friends from the forum; was a lovely day, sunny and hot. The town was busy even early on - lots going on tow atch while I waited , knitting, outside the abbey; a young lad was digging two test pits for and archaeological dig prior to path widening; people on their way to work; milk floats and delivery lorries; cyclists weaving in and out; pigeons searching out their breakfast; clatter of shop shutters as they open up for the day, the rustle of pristine nespapers; sights and smells of a small town waking up. I don;t go intot own very often any more, so really enjoyed all this, and getting the heel turned and the instep done on the sock was a bonus LOL. Headed off to meet friends for coffee in my favourite coffee shop - lots of talking, exchange of views, gossip.......then a trawl around the charity shops which yielded a few very useful bits and pieces and an interesting book on country remedies I hadn't seen before. A lovely way to spend a few hours away from the kitchen at this time of year and a well-need break.
Oh yes - and the odd things you find in graveyards:



LOL

It's lovely meeting up isn't it? I have just had Yarrow and children staying and we had a BRILLIANT time.

I can't get into CL - I changed my e-mail addy on my profile yesterday and should have had an e-mail with a link to reinstate myself, but none forthcoming. Ah well, end of an era perhaps . . .

I've been in and re-activated your account for you; if you change an e-mail address on most forums, it de-activates your account. All sorted now, should be fine.If not, just shout.

Sounds like a lovely day.
I always enjoy going into town early and seeing everything waken up.
Is that a pineapple head you found? :)

MrsL said...

Yes, the topknot from a fresh pineapple, lying beside a bench in the graveyard outside the Methodist church. No sign of the rest of it LOL.........
