Today the DP prepared an amazing lunch, different salads, prawns, boiled eggs, potatoes, sausage rolls, chips, and a lush chocolate cake.
The reason - our niece and husband and their two children visited us. They live in Glasgow but are visiting the North East, camping, and visiting friends - and us.
After being a b&b provider for many years I do get quite anxious about such visits. I know the DP does the job magnificently, but, I so miss not being able to do stuff! Stupidly I get quite stressed, but am fine once the visitors have arrived. I can't do anything about it then can I!?
After lunch we all went down to the Shedudio.
I cleared a space so they could 'create'. Our great nephew said he didn't want to paint, but then he did so I cleared an even bigger space.
The kids helped the DP to feed the birds.
I took the photos through the window, so a bit of reflection there.
There was some football out on the lawn, which I did not partake in....
A successful and very pleasant day with lovely people.
So successful our great nephew made it quite clear he wants to come back again! I pointed out one had to leave before returning as he was not going to get in the car when it was time for them to go.
A good day.
A post script. While we were in the shedudio I heard a noise. From the wood burning stove. I turned to look and there was a Sparrow looking out at me. It was a young one and must have fell down the flue! As I got up it disappeared and must have gone into the bottom of the flue. I opened both of the doors of the shedudio wide open and then opened the door of the stove. Telling everyone to stay still. Out came the sparrow and onto one of the rafters and then out of the doors. Whew. Think we may have to have some sort of (anti inflammatory) netting fitted , there is a cowl but there is a gap. What larks.
pps..Christine the email address I had for Tina didnt work. Sorry. Perhaps she will see our conversations.
