Despite life’s little troubles the good life in retirement continues. I have been lending moral suppport to a friend this week whose Mum (91) is in hospital with a chest infection. Her prognosis looks good.
So… I had one of these this week.
With some of these
The first of three bouquets as it happens. Gorgeous. And some presents including these
The top book is for the poetry group I have just started to attend. I’ll write another post about the other book later.
I chose to go for a walk as the day was mild. We went to the forest and up to the Bridestones.
Signs that it is Autumn everywhere. Just where does all the fungi come from?
There is something very other worldly about fungi I always think.
Afterwards we went to the New Inn in Thornton Dale for lunch. I love the sandwiches and salad (ok the chips) there. As it so happens my short-lived career as a waitress was here. At just the time this was written!
It was then ruled over by a temporary manager who went by the name of Mrs Driscoll aka the Dragon.

Thornton Dale Village Green. Couldn’t resist the colours. We had an evening meal out too, but I forgot the camera.

Think we should go to the tip, but Mr E is all for having a bonfire.
One more treat this week
A trip to the theatre. Now I know I have said this before, but the Northern Broadsides ( based in Halifax, West Yorkshire) are brilliant. I haven’t laughed so much in ages. And maybe they will come to a theatre near you. Link here- http://www.northern-broadsides.co.uk/
Hope you have all had a good week. Be really happy if you leave a link to a post about your week, or tell me what you have been up too.
Have a super weekend.
