Then on Saturday night I went to Barrytown with a friend to see Rachel Dawick and Jon Saunders in their concert 'Boundary Riders'. Great music and great stories and great company.
Come Sunday, I was ready for more wonderfulness and so Brighid and I took Mary K (86) to the Sunday Market. Persons in fashionable parts of the country might be forgiven for not understanding what a significant achievement it is that we finally have a flourishing weekend market.
Then in the afternoon my lovely family and I went for a walk on the latest part of the cycleway. Where I took the photo of the cabbage trees as pictured above. It was all so good that I even came home and made hummous and chocolate cake for school lunches. Budget fortnight requires planning for home made lunches every day. Swimming lessons, dancing lessons, kung fu classes, cubs and hockey fees and subs have arrived at once.
Now I am off to read The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck.
