merry meet )o(
a dim, drizzly day smelling of wood smoke and bonfires~perfect.
we had another load of wood delivered today so once swampy has worked through the huge slabs of tree trunks turning them into fireplace/rayburn sized lumps, we should have quite a load stacked up in one of our lean-to's.
we popped out today for swampys dental check up and came home via Bulbarrow~what did we find at the very top but a young traveller family camped up in their converted horse box and yurt selling the most beautifully woven baskets. We stopped for a chat and if they have not been moved on next trip over i hope to have the money to get a basket.
arriving home i found the first of my university mailings had arrived so the afternoon was spent sorting paper into files and starting my reading~i also had to get on amazon to order a book that i needed yesterday~the perils of changing courses so late! i am very excited about starting my studies and was happy to find that some initial prepartory work involves reading and discussing the poets of the first world war, a topic i covered for my a' level english literature~although it was many a moon ago now i can, luckily remember a lot of the work!
tonight is a big rugby world cup match~england v's south africa so we shall be settling down shortly to watch~swampy having informed me that he will drink beer throughout and shout at the screen~all well and good, however i know that after one or two bottles he will be back with his faithful cup of tea!
well time to get myself a drink~organic blackcurrent squash in my case~and get comfy in my armchair!
This comic is based on actual events. My favorite time of year is when I can lie under the ash tree in my backyard without getting swarmed by mosquitos. ...
