I’m back. I shan’t bother telling you about the last few weeks except to say they’ve not been ones to write home about. My blogging silence has also partly been a result of computer problems.
However, the sun shone yesterday and I went out for a bus ride as far as Burton village where I ambled through the woods and fields and admired the thatched cottages.
Then I got the bus to Parkgate and had a walk along the Parade.
It’s amazing to think that in Mum and Dad’s lifetime Parkgate went from having a fishing fleet that sailed down the River Dee to being the silted up marsh we see today.
It is traditional to have an ice cream when visiting Parkgate but I settled for some chips instead.
If I had had an ice cream as well it would have meant missing the bus and waiting another hour.
I shall have to return soon because I can’t stop thinking about all the different flavours that were on offer. I think Cinder Toffee, Coconut and Mint Choc Chip are my favourites. What are yours?
On the way home I did some shopping and then made a hotpot which smelled wonderful. The stewing steak was melt in the mouth. The only problem was, despite the smell and the texture the thing was so bland it was yucky. I really do have a hit and miss approach to hotpots. I'll have to start measuring the quantities of the things I put in instead of taking pot luck.
The rest of the day was spent in the garden beginning to get it organised after a long period of neglect. There is a long way to go but at least I have begun. Today I managed another hour or so in the garden before the rain came.
