Can it really be more than 4 months since I last posted? Where did the summer go? September is here and autumn with it and the hedgerows are full of berries and ruby red rosehips, the mornings are misty with an occasional promise of sunshine to come and although it is over half a century since I went back to school or even college I always think of this time of year as a new beginning, time for a new start.,
Our summer has been a mixture of hospitals both me and Mr M (I am glad to say all is well with my eye and I am now about to have the other eye done) outings on our own and with friends political upheaval in the UK and so on.
...and this after with the ruched fine lace representing the fog I felt my eye was stuffed with in the day or two after the op and the grey stitching the barbed wire I felt was in my eye before all became brighter.
A lovely day - and on the way back we stopped at a hotel for tea and views before reaching the hotel where we had a lie down on the bed till it was time to go out for some fish and chips for supper! The short break did us both good and we resolved to reschedule our cancelled break for later in the year.
Another Exeter walk this time we got a bus from the city centre to Polsloe Bridge where the path set off between a pub and an off licence not a very auspicious looking start but within a few minutes we were in open countryside and climbing away from the city and its noise. We stopped for our picnic lunch of a sandwich and a shared bottle of lemonade, purchased in Exete,r overlooking this view. Shame it was a bit hazy but we enjoyed it none the less.
