Been, I'm glad to say, so far, another good busy week. I think Wednesday was easily the most full, so will give a quick run down of Wednesday's events:- up early, to early service at St. Mary's (7.30 a.m.) quick breakfast then motored over to Gazeley (near Newmarket) to fix good long case clock by Suffolk maker Thomas Moore, of Ipswich. Job done, clock ticking away nicely when we left. On to Sudbury to search for (and eventually found and acquired) silver chain. Did what turned into a major shop at Waitrose's in Sudbury as we've a fairly busy weekend coming up (Sarah and tribe staying). Had light lunch in 'The Secret Garden', still in Sudbury, then drove home, arrived about three thirty p.m. Grabbed a needed afternoon snooze, then up, changed into decent clobber, and out to supper with friends Milly and John. Usual super grub and excellent conversation there, catching up on all the town news.
The photos are of (from top) an Azalia that Rog and Catherine gave Ann on Saturday; Chrysanthemums purchased from usual roadside stall (no new rude messages this time) on way to Gazeley; and orchid, given to Ann a few days ago by her husband.
Off up the wooden hill now (Ann having preceded me there some few minutes ago).
So - Goodnight all.
P.s. Just reopened this to say that as I was going upstairs, I met Ann coming downstairs to remind me that we'd not supped yet. I thought hard, then had to agree. "But I thought you'd gone up to bed ?" I said.
"No," she said "I went upstairs to do the ironing".
"A pressing engagement ? ", I answered.
Sorry Rog, I know I was poaching on your preserves.
