We were taking a friend out for lunch – our mutual friend, Mike, whose husband’s funeral we went to last year. On the way, the Sage phoned to tell her to expect us later than planned, and all was fine. We had a very good lunch (Ben was being walked later by a friend, we weren’t leaving him all day) and then went on to visit Al and co. I had, most remarkably, remembered to put Easter eggs etc in the car. I haven’t got around to buying Al a birthday present mind you, his birthday is on Tuesday and I’ll have to get that sorted out. He’s even less interested in birthdays than I am, so it doesn’t matter too much.
It was a lovely morning, quite warm compared to what we’ve been used to, and I didn’t take a coat – which was okay until we went for a walk this afternoon with the children. My dress was reasonably warm and I had on a short wool jacket, but I was freezing by the time we got back, especially my hands. Al and Squiffany had made hot cross buns, most impressively, and then I nipped back home to take Ben out and feed him before going back for supper.
Tomorrow, flower arranging. Gill is an expert flower arranger, which I am not, but in her absence I’ve been roped in to do the altar flowers. I’m sure it’ll be fine. Flowers are beautiful by their nature, I can’t mess it up that much, surely?
