It's my mother's birthday today and the weather has been gorgeous, I'm glad to say. We had nice morning coffees and cakes here and were actually able to sit at an outside table in the sun, which was lurvely. Then we went a wee walk here and got so hot that an ice lolly was definitely justified!! I've still gone on with my plan to make carrot and butterbean soup this afternoon, even though it doesn't feel autumny enough for that just now!!
Mum was pleased with her card:
Long may that sun go on shining! (even though I should be painting another coat of oil onto my decking - but I can't be bothered!!)
