Sunday Evening

Isnt she lovely? Donna calls her Watering Angel,she is welcome in my garden ,we keep getting clouds over head ,but then the strong wind that we have at the moment ,blows the rain clouds away again,We had one shower the day before yesterday,but that is all ,so like the Angel in Donnas lovely graphic ,I will be weilding my water can again this evening ......

I have had a busy few days ,on Wednesday I went off to the over sixties club ,where we were entertained by eighteen little girls from a nearby school,and their teachers ,two lovely young ladies ,who dont look much older than their pupils,have you noticed how teachers, Policemen and mothers pushing prams ,all look so young these days ,or is it me getting older lol ?The school choir was so talented ,and sang a range of songs ,some we knew and were invited to join, in some we didnt ,some funny ones ,and some in the round ,can you remember doing that at school ?I can .....I helped with the tea ,and enjoyed myself ,made lots of new friends too .

The next day ,we all went to Oakham ,a lovely drive through lots of pretty villages ,and then a little wander round Oakham ,a very county town ,no big shops ,lots of smaller nice (expensive ) ones but enjoyed window shopping,stumbled across delightful thatched cottage ,in the picture above ,then we all met at the Methodist hall ,for a delcious home made  afternoon tea ,sandwiches ,scones and cakes that were very very yummy ,much more than we could eat but we tried very  hard !   Friday and Saturday I spent ,doing the usual chores ,today a lazy Sunday Jean and Pete came over to see us for a while ,which was very nice ,Maurice has gone off to start the first of three nights ,and on the TV Italy and France are playing  Football ,I am now going to make myself something to eat before I watch Poirot,which is much more to my taste ,though we have had nothing but repeats as an alternative to Football ,maybe after tonights match ,we can have our tele back ....

Have a blessed Sunday evening everyone ....with love

I love the little independent shops. With the chain stores it does not matter which town or city you are in they are all the same.  We have had a few showers here today and we had rain overnight so not watering for us tonight. Love Joan.

Mothers pushing prams are definitely getting younger.
Oakham looks nice, I love the pic of the cottage. There's something particularly scenic about a thatched roof I think. B. x

I do love the watering angel.  She reminds me of my Cari when she was about 2 years old.  The picture of the thatched roof
cottage was so charming.  It's how I picture little English villages to look.  I'm glad you had so much fun being entertained by the children's choir.  There is nothing more refreshing than those sweet young faces and voices.
