Post Bluebelt Greens

What a wonderful weekend. My wellies had several trips out and now look genuinely muddy. My coat/waterproof thing to sit on is also showing signs of being ill used and I am so thankful that Dad left his brolly behind when he visited last week. Several toddlers commented loudly, “Mummy/Daddy why is that lady using an umbrella as a walking stick?” I rarely stuck around to hear the answers, but it was probably because I was walking up the hill behind the grandstand and not coping well with it, my back having objected to sleeping on a lilo and sitting on hard floors with no support.

Anyway, I am now home, clean and using cutlery again. I did have to think about which hand uses which implement, but not for too long.

It was lovely to meet so many people on Sunday and my husband is very grateful to you for not abducting me. He was rather worried when I said I was going to meet some people I knew from t’internet.

More tomorrow – I am off to have some cake and custard.

PS I have just got the new broadband connection working with Linux! Hurrah, I am surfing ethically again.
