Back from the Dentist, two toasted crumpets and a coffee later and I feel able to face the world.

Perhaps a 9am appointment wasn’t such a bad thing after all, gets it all over and done with early and leaves time to fit in other things.

Curried chicken for tea, and I have an urge to make an apple tart, so I need to do some of the boring domestic things first.  And then maybe I can get on and if there is any time left I have some old prints and books to sort which will be my reward.

We had a nice day yesterday,  we took our son and daughter out for a delightful pub lunch.  A nice thing to do every now and again.  We had a lovely cheerful gossip, ships and shoes and sealing wax and the sun shone.  What more could we want?
