Good morning everyone ,I cant believe I havent posted for two days ..well I suppose I can! we have been busy ,out and about and enjoying the sunshine ...we are nothing if not flexible ! in my last entry I told you what we were going to do ,now I'll tell you what we did !
Maurice came home Tueday morning after working the night shift,after a sleep ,he got up and we went and bought some maggots and bait and bread ,then went over to Mereside ,only to find the lake was now closed !,and is now a fisheries (for breeding ),very disapointed ,we drove nearer home to have a look at the lake near the golf course ,after studying it for some time ,whilst I wandered around with my camera ,Maurice decided~this lake will be good in about five years time ,where it is full of small fry,he suspects its been recently stocked ...so his venue tomorrow will need to be further a field ....When we got home ,we went allllllll the way next door,armed with a couple of bottles of wine , to Alan and Allys,who had invited us for a Barby ...we sat and chatted until Glen came home from work ...then Alan got stuck in ,he cooked and cooked then we got stuck in and ate and ate,what a feast ,we thoroughly enjoyed our evening ,in the sunshine ,whats better than good company good food and good wine ,?all overlooked by Scooby who watched us through the hedge until he discovered he could get a better view if he stood on a patio chair! he also enjoyed the titbits Alan gave him !
The next day,dawned bright and hot again ,but Maurice decided against going fishing ,so pottered around at home ,I meanwhile got ready and went to the club ,I had taken as instructed a pkt of sweets ,I had wrapped up ,we all had to take a present, not more than a pound in price ,which we handed in when we got there ,we then bought a ticket for a pound ,and as our number was called out ,selected a present from the sack of pressies that one kind gentleman,'dragged round ' he soon became hot and out of puff ,so the announcement was made ..When your number is called can you collect your prize....the gentleman was then seen dissapearing out side for a ciggy to recover!!! Its a good fund raiser.... A dear little lady came and sat beside me,can I sit with you my duck ! says she? ,she was so little and frail but a little chatter box ,she wore the thickest lenses in her glasses ,my word you'd have to have good eye sight to see through them ! she told me her late husband was a special constable ,a few times ! That she lived alone and had a carer who also took her shopping,and when I asked did she have meals on wheels,Oh the indignation ..course I dont its that frozen stuff ..and you have to have one of them michael waves ! she was a babe and she called me girl ...I like that ! her name was May too ,remember I met a May last time ..can only assume Fen workers hibernated in September and then called thier resulting daughters May !!!......a gentleman read us some of his poetry ,then we had tea ,I was then asked would I like to go on the trip to Felixstow in August,yes please...Felixstow is a seaside town on the East coast ,like Shirley said last month the meetings can be a bit boring but they do have some good trips ...and I agree and plan to go with them whenever I can .. . .
Well this is developing into quite an epistle so I think I will tell you all about yesterday, tomorrow ! (I'll just say no water feature yet !) thats what happens if you dont post each day you find yourself playing catch up!!,'and we know what happens if we do long entrys dont we ? ' and the weather is far to nice to be sitting in at the computer ,so with love to you all and enjoy the sun...
