I slept in today, or rather stayed in bed late. It was so luxurious to dally rather than be up and packed ready for breakfast at 7.30!
I feel for Debra who went back to work on Monday. I certainly need these few quiet days. Karen went to the Poetry Festival at Ledbury and though I was tempted ( I went last time I was here) I decided to remain at home.
I explored the woods on the property and I am amazed how much they have grown since I was here last. You can hardly see down some of the walkways. I have observed all the renovations on the house and wandered through the garden and the field with the van. It is a rather wild garden with lots of secret spots.
Andy used to farm pigs and sheep some time ago but now married to a vegetarian and wanting to be free to travel, he has given that up. The old shed is going to become his studio for painting when he finishes the brick wall, the patio and other concerns. Now they are retired they are both free to pursue other interests.
The van has a great view over the farmland to the hills.
This is a lovely part of the world and I enjoy the garden, especially the raspberries! The rest of the day was just reading and doing some travel arrangements-very relaxing. I did stir myself to get tea for Andy who is building a brick wall along the edge of the garden beside the wood and pick raspberries. Nothing too arduous!
