For my first daily blog I picked a day when nothing was scheduled!Normaly on a Friday I meet a friend for tea and toasted tea cake but she couldn't make today.The weather here has been wet and windy for days so I suggested a trip to Marks and Spencer's at Cheshire Oaks.This is the largest of their stores outside of London so good for a bit of exercise.I went in thinking there would be lots of new Spring clothes in but it was just full of racks and racks of sale items.I really do think M&S have lost their way.I didn't buy anything but I am not really into clothes.What I have suits me fine.We had had an email so say there was a wine sale.All the spaces where they had been were empty.
Back from there we did the Tesco shop.C usually does this on his own while I am meeting my friend.
After lunch it cleared up a bit so into the garden we went.We spent two hours out there.We have three enormous trees in our garden,two with TPOs(tree protection orders) on them. Autumn is a nightmare but we are still raking leaves up and it is March.Where are they coming from?I shall probably be very stiff tomorrow.
I promise tomorrow will be more interesting. It is our daughter's birthday and we are meeting up in Chester.The forecast for tomorrow is dire- again.It is back to raining and blowing a gale here.
I have just poured myself a glass of rose ,my weekend treat, and I stall have a read of my book ready for Reading Group next week.It is Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri and is a collection of short stories.
