On Monday July 11th I enjoyed spending time with Cathy as I took her for an appointment in Leeds. It is always a pleasure to spend time with her when she is home. I was able to spend more time with her on Wednesday too which was lovely. Cathy had got a ‘groupon’ voucher, so we enjoyed a free afternoon tea at Darley Mill. We had a sandwich, a scone and a choice of cake; I chose a piece of carrot cake and Cathy chose lemon drizzle cake and we had half each of each.
On Thursday I went to the Guild Meeting in Molly’s garden and fortunately the weather remained fine. It was lovely to relax with my friends then. My beloved relaxed with Piper. I thought I had better not take Piper in case he took a fancy to digging up her lovely garden! As usual Lynn had set us a quiz and as usual I did not do very well! I certainly missed my beloved’s valuable input; he is always can work out clues better than I can. Once we knew the answers they were obvious!! It took me back in time to the treasure hunt we used to have at Oatlands Chapel years ago; it nearly led to divorce proceedings for my first husband Stephen and myself! We usually did not do well; I do not like competitions, but Stephen always felt mortified if we did not do well! We solved the conflict by my driving and leaving Stephen to find the clues or I went on the treasure hunt with someone else. The best part of the treasure hunt was the fish and chips tea afterwards!
On Friday I helped at the Acorn Centre which I enjoyed. The students have varying needs and it always good to see them. Beth came to see us after work or rather to see Piper! I had a drink and cake with her at M&S.
