Meg and Bob

are both a fit and enjoy being outside especially on a sunny day. Both are great walkers and can walk for miles! Today’s sunshine was marvellous despite the cold wind

Getting things done together

in the garden is so much more fun than on your own, even if one just wishes to be busy doing not very much at all. With blankets, hats and warm coats people enjoyed the sun, the company and pottering around with friends. What a great end to the week. A hot cup of coffee upon the return, a newspaper was a great finish to a busy morning.

Who doesn’t like shopping?

a set of cups, cookies, a top and a cuppa at the market! What else would a woman want  😀

The garden is open for business, When Harry met Ron and Bunny and Spring

Bliss, finally a beautiful day. Morning  fitness with Mick, and there was a dash to the beach.  The sun so warm we spilled out straight after lunch and it was only rain that pushed us back inside at 3.15pm! Gerry and Reg took a walk and fed the fish. Meg helped with sweeping.

Ethel and Ethne loved listening to the spring sounds  and views (yes, daffodils!) , Kay and Betty chatting away and all four watching men at work.  And men we did have! Ron continued with digging out what was a very big and prickly shrub and Harry helping out and supervising. And as you would expect they moved after that to discuss the important aspects of wisteria 🙂  It was great to see both Harry and Ron enjoying doing something they love and enjoying each other’s company. And if that was not enough Harry has now got a second garden mate – Bunny. Where do you find Bunny on the terrace? Under the raised beds cleaning the paving 🙂

And the gardening was followed by another wonderful live music session / music quiz. As usual Eileen and Clare enjoyed the music tremendously watching John’s playing. We all had a super day!Let’s pray for more days like that…
