Cowart's Common Room
Foggy Lark

Morning Larks.

Thick fog here at the moment and 9 degrees but it will clear later and rise to 19 degrees with some spells of sunshine if the weather forecasters are correct.

Out like a light early last night and I took FN's advice and ate a digestive biscuit well two actually and it seems to have done the trick.

No plans for today other than walks over the dunes with my Patch, when we were walking back home late yesterday afternoon from our walk and nearing our cottage we noticed a lady in her mobility vehicle had suddenly stopped and she said she could not get it going again. She had a little black and white chouhwawa dog on a lead with her that would walk beside her as she drove the scooter along. I offered to help the lady after she said the battery was probably flat and that she had only acquired it that day as a hire out and was on holiday and that she was renting at the bottom of the road. As I began to push the vehicle along with lady in a young couple came to help too, the young lad took over and said he would push the lady home, ah very kind I said your good deed for the day.Very Happy

Have a great Sunday everyone.Very Happy

Fennie's Avatar What a wonderful photo. I shall have to bag that one for re-use.
Of course if your lady had had a proper dog like Patchcockle or one of those seal fodder Alsatians and a little harness then the dog would have pulled the scooter and your lady could have had little reins. Hope all is well today. Very HappyVery Happy

Camilla's Avatar Morning Fennie and everyone,

Haha sounds like good idea with Patchcockle pulling lady along with reins not so the lady's own dog he was incredibly tiny little pixie dog.Very Happy

Enjoy your planned lunch today with friends Fennie.

Fennie's Avatar It's the usual gang, Camilla, but we'll have a few laughs and a couple of bottles of wine and I might try and play my new twinning anthem. Then it will be back to the church this evening for another session of Chamber music. I spoke to someone last evening who came from Kent who said that although she lived in a big town they couldn't put on anything like we did. I told her that we might be a small town but we had a big heart. But I don't contribute to the music festival at all apart from a very small financial contribution. Others do the work.Very HappyVery Happy

Withy Brook's Avatar I thought it was lovely that the lad so readily helped. Unusual these days.

Camilla's Avatar Well everyone does their bit and contributes in different ways to the music festival so that's got to be a good thing. Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar Yes that it is what I thought Withy at least he stopped to help he could have just gone on and walked by.

Camilla's Avatar Well I have cleaned out all the oven this morning, loaded the dishwasher on, hung out two big lots of laundry, washed the kitchen floor and made up a bed of fresh linen and walked the dog and my HL is still not up from his bed this morning. Just about to make a coffee already had breakfast ages ago, two rounds of poppy seed toast with Raspberry Preserve and a small bowl of fresh strawberry's and Greek yoghurt.... What's not to like.Very Happy

Fennie's Avatar Give a double tick goldstar to that woman and tell her to take the rest of the day off before she blows up. And I can't think of a nicer breakfast, Camilla, than poppyseed toast with raspberry jam. I made do with a boiled egg (which was still very agreeable) and will sustain me until luncheon. Just in the process of laying the table (for 7). We usually eat in the kitchen and use the dining room for printing but the kitchen table is just too small to take 7 comfortably but the dining room means all the best crockery and cutlery and what not all has to be taken out and dusted down as opposed to using the everyday stuff. J is kindly preparing food. Serve them right if all they got was a takeaway pizza in a box and we told them to eat with their fingers! Gannets! Still no doubt they will arrive bearing bottles of wine to ease the pain. Very HappyVery Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Lucky Lady to have so many good Samaritans to help her home.

That sounds a yummy breakfast Camilla, we has scones and very berry jam.

In my old house the dining room doubled as the rehearsal room for the band in the winter so looked more like a music shop sometimes. Laughing

KitKatCot's Avatar We had to go out today to buy some more 'stuff' to deal with our little mouse problem!

Where better to go than to a local garden centre? Where they happen to provide a cafe where the cooked breakfasts are legendary?

That was at 10 o'clock this morning, now it is 6:30 pm and I'm just about to make a sandwich for our tea. In between we've had a cup of tea and a biscuit.

Withy Brook's Avatar I had an egg too, with a piece of whole meal bread, with honey on the extra part. Yummy! I managed to get it in peace before the decibel accompaniment arrived down for its breakfast! Thankfully they all went out and did not come back till about 3.00 so I got to Church and then had a peaceful lunch and a nap. They made up for it later of course!
They go home tomorrow and my, won't we miss them!
Just interrupted by goodnight kisses!

Camilla's Avatar Reminds me of when my two little ones are here Withy the noise is enough to deafen you wish it would get rid of my old tinnitus I have had for years.
