Gosh, it felt good to meet up with E., her dog, us and Ruby for our first proper walk this year. The weather was glorious although we were a tad hot and bothered by the end of the 4 miles.
We had a small takeaway snack, shared a slice of Bakewell tart between us and had a cold drink at the end of it. We had brought foldaway chairs and sat in the shade cast by the trunk of a large tree.
I was tired and aching so had a warm bath later on. This morning I was even more sore and stiff but it has now gone away. We concentrated on the dining room carpet and remaining rugs, gosh, that carpet was very grubby. Shows what you get used to! The house smells nice and fresh now. The bedrooms and conservatory will be done when the next warm weather arrives, might be a while.
We had morning and afternoon tea on the patio, plus lunch. I have finished dead heading the front garden as well as the new growth was showing.
