|the well underneath the dining room in the pub we went to yesterday|
I woke up early yesterday and it was pouring down so I texted M and said it was okay if she wanted to cancel and stay dry. She opted to cancel, which was fine by me, but as it turned out the sun was shining by the time she would have arrived although it was probably too wet to be planting in clay soil. I only had the crocosmia bulbs to be planted and they can easily wait until next time so it'll all work out in the end.
I spent most of the morning practicing the piano. I'm struggling playing both hands together so am patiently (not!) working through very slowly, doing a bar at a time. It hasn't clicked yet but it's not so bad that I think I'll never get it right, it just seems a big step from the level of music I was playing before. I'll feel better about it after a couple of days ... hopefully!
I met L for lunch at the Westbrook and we both enjoyed the meal. I had roast lamb with roasties, veg, and Yorkshire pudding, followed by jam roly poly and custard. L had exactly the same. We both agreed that it was delicious and will be going back again. I'm glad it worked out that I could leave home early enough to have lunch with L as she's not feeling too good and it meant that we had more time to talk.
Today there is nothing in the diary so it'll be a quiet day at home. I have a few bits and pieces to do, which won't take too long, and then can settle down for a pleasant day filled with crochet, piano, letter writing, and reading.
