On Friday afternoon I went to the local park with my girls, their boys and Gary. It’s a lovely park and fortunately it was a lovely day. As in most parks and public places there are benches. More and more we are seeing memorial plaques on them. I love to read the inscriptions, like the one below. Do you think this means “Our Ann’s” ashes were scattered hereabouts? If so, I think that’s really nice. Her favourite place and last resting place all in one!
George stayed overnight on Friday (more Uno) and I promised to go and watch him rock-climbing at the indoor centre where he is learning the sport. So I tagged along yesterday when Victoria went to pick him up. I was amazed when I walked in and saw how high he climbs. He’s only six!
Later on in the afternoon Caroline rang and asked if I would like to meet her up at the King Bill. That’s a local pub in a lovely setting up on the hill behind our house. Muffin and I set off on foot to meet her. It’s a lovely walk up through the fields and I was looking forward to sitting outside the pub, with Caroline and Charlie, and a nice cold drink when I got there. Unfortunately when I got there this was the sight that greeted me.
The pub was shut!
Caroline arrived minutes later and she was as disappointed as I was. However, we went back to her house and had a drink there instead. It’s been a lovely weekend and I’m hoping for a good summer filled with many more (a bit sunnier maybe) just like it.
