Happy New Week and Happy Father's Day!
Sounds like a lovely walk, LINDY, if a bit smelly! DIBNLIB- I'm pleased for you in that your Mum's funeral was as good as such an occasion can be xxx Nothing exciting happening here today. Callum was here from about 11am until 4.30, the car washing and cleaning was interrupted at regular intervals for food, drink, essential (!) checking of his phone and so on. He took me to Tesco for stuff that had been forgotten yesterday - fresh vegetables etc. Sorry that I've nothing interesting to say!

Lurker Alert! Goodness it's quiet on here today. Just spent last few minutes catching up with end of last week as Ive been away for the weekend.
I hope all those with ailments are coping and proving.
Yesterday I set off to drive to Oxford for lunch at Balliol College for a celebratory lunch in honour of Dorothy L Sayers .I have belonged to the DLS historical & Literary Society since the 1980s when I started reading her Lord Peter Wimsey Novels and have read everything she has written including her Poetry and Theological writings. She was such a fascinating woman. The only thing that spoiled the day was a series of downpours which meant that I couldn't have a wander around Oxford. After that I drove to my Daughters in Silverstone where I stayed last night and spent a lovely day with my 2 Granddaughters, Seraphina & Luna - they grow so fast. Then drove home to Suffolk but the dreaded A14 was closed for 2 junctions so was diverted for about 30 miles through Stowmarket, making journey time3.5 hours! Naturally I a sitting at laptop with a glass of wine at my side!
I hopw everyone has a good week and some respite from the relentless rain!
Nice to see the latest posts. My OH had phone calls from both our sons, but we are expecting cards in the post tomorrow, as neither of them seems to realise that todays postal service is not as prompt as it used to be! Glad you managed to get to church, OG. Bonnie still rolls in things occasionally, but often they are dried up remains of birds and animals, which don't leave a smell. She was, however, stopped just in time today from stealing some bread & butter from the dinner table when my OH left it to fetch some of his home made jam! He finished the jam in that pot today, which leaves only one pot left now from last year (he makes his own every year).
Our nearest M&S is only small, and sells food and a tiny amount of clothing, but you can order most things including homewares and bedding, etc, to be collected. Its very useful!
