Friday 17th May
Another lovely sunny day. I just love this weather as I am sure most folk do. I measured up a lovely country cottage in Peasholmes lane adn this morning my computer showed that it had received 333 views and we only put it on the website at 4 pm. Not bad ? Good news with STead and Simpson's old shop as it has a "For Auction" board on it now. I do hope it sells and the shop springs back into life. It is such an eyesore. The Farmers Quiz was as brilliant as evern and teh Rollover ( £87.25 ) was NOT WON so it will be over £100 next Thursday. Taste of Cumbria is coming to Ulverston 25th and 26th May.

THURSDAY 16th May
A beautifully sunny day. Clear blue skies! Had a very busy day on Wednesday as it was my first day back from Ascot, so there was an amount of "clearing up" to do. Measured up a truly delightful cottage with lots of character, 3 bedrooms and a huge garden. Details coming shortly! Perhaps later today. It's such a pleasure to be out and about on sunny days like today. I have already been over to Broughton and the ride over was lovely. Met up with Derek at the Farmers at 9 and we were joined by Val and Bryn who are just back from yet another holiday. We then went to the Captola to be entertained by a delightful young lady singing some Tamla Motown songs.

I'm back after a few days away in Ascot visiting Lisa. And what a lovely time I had! The train journey was faultless on the Pendolino. Smooth as silk. All seats are reserved so there is no panic of any sort. We went to Ascot Races on the Saturday ( didn't win anything ) and met up with a few of Lisa's friends which was very nice. Everyone was "dressed to impress". Then afterwards to the Royal Forresters for a lovely dinner and G&T's. On Sunday we visited my grandaughter in Kings Sutton. A very pretty village with some thatched cottages and a village green. Really lovely. Marissa and Ben seem to be very happy and they make a lovely couple.. Monday was a visit to Windsor which is always a pleasure and we walked down the "Long Walk" to the castle. And Tuesday saw me on the 10.15 from Ascot to Waterloo and then via the Tube to Euston and home again. Throughout I was treated like visiting Royalty. A lovely few days.
