I got up on Tuesday morning to find an email from a friend with the devastating news that her beloved husband had lost his life in a terrible accident three weeks ago. They made a wonderful couple, led a life full of love, laughter & adventure. Anyone who met them could see that they were soulmates and for him to be snatched away is just so cruel. My heart breaks for her. If ever there was a reminder to appreciate our every moment and live life to its fullest then this is it.
I was able to check into my Wii Fit for my weight and a balance check but the exercise option is well and truly kaput. Instead, I caught up with Blogland, did a load of washing which I pegged on the line before exploring the garden. When Jon was up we had breakfast, made sandwiches and headed off to this week's grand National Trust day out.
Our destination was Canons Ashby in the county of Northampton, neither of which I'd visited before although Jon had been to Corby a couple of times when he worked for a living. (A journey of around an hour and twenty minutes).
Here she is again, enjoying feasting on a scabious.
Tea was a salad whilst watching the Wales match with our hearts in our mouths. Well done, boys! I'm off to water the garden, then it's the first half of Italy Vs Switzerland, rum & cola and the grand finale of The Great British Sewing Bee. Raph to win!
See you soon!
