~*~ The Sap is Rising......~*~
It has been a truly beautiful Spring day here today- warm sunshine and the birds singing...!
Verity and I went for lunch in "Truffles" in Corbridge and had a stroll around a few of the nice shops.I bought a 25m roll of pink ricrac for £5 which is just ideal for my new Rosalie Quinlan BOM.
When we got home,I got to work outside, Clearing gutters,cleaning out stables and henhouses. Spring must be in the air because the hens have started laying and the cockerals are strutting their stuff !!
I have a date for the new house - 28th February, the recent central heating discussions have put things back a full month.
The quilt shows an example of the Gammill's handywork at the FQ's
Calum has been in London this weekend with the English Lit dept of the school, They are going to see a production of Othello staring Ewan McGregor and then visitng the Globe Theatre and the infamous "crack" at the Tate Modern.
Alex is on the Trans-Siberian railway as we speak, so is incommunicado for a week until he gets to Beijing.
Molly, the Great Dane, seems well again and all in all things seem to be coming together.
Think I might have a P&P marathon on BBC 4 tonight !!!!!
