Well last week I spent a lovely day with Pat ,Joanne and Lucy at Cobble Hey Gardens, up near the Forest of Bowland.
It was gorgeous and a perfect summer day with blue skies and sunshine the whole time we were there. Lucy skipped ,ran and danced along the gardens and enjoyed seeing all the animals, especially the new born piglets. We then finished off our day with lovely cake and drinks at the tearooms there and of course came away laden with jars of local jam and pickles and a few little bits for Lucy.
It has been pretty wet lately and the frogs in my garden were hopping all over the place in the rain.
Most of you reading this will also probably now know that our son Mark is getting married, not as orginally planned next spring but in September this year, to Emma his girlfriend of 8 years and it is to be up at Gretna Green. So we and a few others on our side of the family have been busy making arrangements to get up there for the service .We are also making plans to visit our niece Lisa who has now moved to Scotland and lives on the coast near Edinburgh, we are really looking forward to seeing her and and of course lovely George the dog who is, as I write, no doubt running on the many beaches near to them.
On the home front we were delighted to at last be rid of our horrible leaky garage roof and the new one looks a real treat, it is made from rubber the same as Firestone tyres and has a life of about 50 years . Pete had a massive clearout of 30 years of 'stuff' and is now in the process of getting it into shape. Pictures on next blog!
