Hello – it’s me – Briar!
Jane has been a bit busy – with work and life – and I haven’t done a blog for a while, and so I am going to tell you about my weekend.
I like weekends, because Jane doesn’t have to go to work and we can do more things together.
On Saturday mornings we always go out in the car, to visit mother in her nursing home. We park in the centre of the village and walk to the home. I know the way, and once or twice I have had to pull on the lead when Jane tried to take the wrong path.
Mother has settled into her new home quite well now and I have made friends with the other ladies who sit with mother in the lounge and with the staff. I go around to say hello to everyone and then I settle down while Jane talks to mother. I keep a look out for Tilly the cat, but I’m not allowed to chase her, because she lives there.
And while we have the car out I usually get a good country walk. This time we went up to the top of a big hill where we could look down on St Just, Sennen , Land’s End, and lots of the places that Susan Howatch mentions in Penmarric. In the distance, because it was a clear day, we could even see the Isles of Scilly.
We would have taken a picture but it was a grey day so it wouldn’t have come out very well.
In the afternoon I guarded the house so the Jane could go to the library and do her shopping.
When she came home I had my supper and then we sat on the sofa and saw a film. It was ‘The Woman in Black,’ and Jane said to tell you that the book is much better.
I had another big walk today, on the paths and fields around Gulval. We hadn’t been up there for ages and I had a lovely time. I walked between the rows in a cornfield and I inspected some fields that had already been harvested.
You can see across the fields to the sea and St Michael’s Mount, but it is a shame that somebody put a supermarket where our heliport used to be.
We got back to the car just before it started to rain.
I’m not quite sure what happened after we got home, because I went to sleep in my chair. But I woke up for supper and my evening walk.
And now I am writing you a blog.
I hope you had good weekends too.
I will be back soon, with a new round of my game, and Jane will be back in a day or so, to talk about books.
Love Briar xxx
