Saturday

Day started with blue skies, but ended with a shower of rain. A very gradual deterioration took place over a period of 12 hours. Never mind, a maximum temperature of 21C / 70F is not to be sniffed at. In the morning, we cycled to a garden centre in Arnhem to acquire some grass-seed. In the afternoon, I sat outside in the shade (sun is a tad hot) to read The Mayor of Casterbridge, one of Thomas Hardy's classics. Does tend to get you down a bit, so I switched to Soil and Soul by Alastair Macintosh, about the empowerment of the people of the Highlands and Islands, most especially those in the Isle of Eigg. After supper, we nipped over to the cemetery to have a look at my mother's grave.

It sounds like a nice relaxing day for you. I'm sure that second book was more to your liking. It was too windy here to sit outside today, I'm hoping for better weather tomorrow to do a hike over the South Downs. Jeannette xx
