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:
