..today didn’t start off too well. So when my housework was done I packed my book in my bag, put the lead on Muffin, got in the car and set off for Uppermill. I knew exactly where I wanted to go (after I had taken Muffin for a nice walk along the towpath) to spend some time reading my book and enjoying the peace and quiet of a sunny afternoon.
I wanted to sit on one of these benches and enjoy…
…this view and read my book and…
watch the occasional boat tootle along at about 4 miles an hour. Actually these were the only two I saw, just like buses eh?
I liked the urns and cans on this boat painted in the traditional narrow boat pattern of roses and castles. I didn’t know until just now that that was what the pattern was called, I looked it up on the internet. I can’t imagine life without the internet these days.
Anyway, that was my Saturday afternoon and it was lovely.
