Monday 28 July

A quiet day at home with no one in or out so a chance to ensure accounts up to date and usual Monday tasks. Had hoped to get into the garden while the weather was holding and pick some blackcurrants and rhubarb before it disappears but phone calls and emails and general interruptions meant the afternoon went very quickly. Handyman up and with Chris spent most of the day doing work to the entrance to the courtyard where rain keeps washing away the gravel. After dinner went to the Over Haddon Hall where the villagers were treated to a preview of a play to be aired at the Edinburgh Fringe. The Frogman, by the Meanwhile Theatre Company was funny (but with some strong language) and any takings went to the benefit of the Village Hall.
