A Grocer, A Country Ride and a Bicycle
Recent days have been filled with appointments,
driving to and fro.
Sometimes you just have to tell yourself to stop
and smell the roses or produce.
The next best thing to the flower shop is our local grocer.
I always like to see what is new and was happy to discover
and an array of other goodies.
There is always a mystery or two or three...
Elephant garlic, English Marrows and Pommelo's.
Anyone know what these are?
I managed an outing out to the country in the afternoon
where I had a run in with my beloved
navigation system 'Tom Tom'.
We got lost.
I say 'we' because it was his fault.
The end result was a great lunch with my dear friend Kate.
We were laughing on our way out of the pub
at the great collection of art
by artist Annie Tempest.
She produces a series of cartoons,
about a delightful elderly couple with attitude...
Note to self...never think one left turn
and then a quick right and another left turn will solve all your problems.
You then end up with photos of a sign, a car, a phone box
a bench and a bin.
Once home, I popped on my 'sneaks'..
grabbed my bicycle...Pashley
and took a ride out our back door
to meet Mr. H at the train station.
On this occasion...while I was busying taking pics,
our dog, Tika had other ideas.
Pond water, yuch!
Well, I smelled the roses and the fruit and veg,
took a long ride in the country,
had lunch with a dear friend
and rode my bike alongside a wet dog and Mr. H.
All and All...
another wonderful day in England!
