My second foray in a week.

Yesterday afternoon my daughter picked me up and took me to my old 'regular' pub. In my excitement I forgot my stick, not too much of a problem as we parked right next to the garden gate.

What an overwhelming welcome I received from my long lost friends, who have become a sort of extended family. I got very out of breath from all the talking, trying to catch up with their personal events of the last year. Wonderful to taste again what has become my favourite beer, from a small local independent brewery. Whilst I never went inside the pub I felt totally safe sat outside amongst friends on a glorious sunny day.

Down from a high with a bump this morning, back to the daily routine and an overcast day.

That sounds like a wonderful day all round 😊

So pleased you enjoyed your day and the beer 2greys. The sun will come out tomorrow hopefully. Xxxx

That short, simple get together with your friends will have lifted your spirits no end. Yes, apart from the beer, the good things in life are free. I can sense your delight and pleasure 2greys and hope your visit will be one of many more to come.

It’s so good that you enjoyed your day out and were able to relax and feel safe. On Friday my bestie and I went on our birthday dinner outing, postponed from last year. The wonderful old Mill restaurant is opposite to Ragley Hall where they are holding the Midlands Air Festival. As we arrived the red arrows went into full display mode, then a dozen hot air balloons took the sky and one landed next to us in the garden. Finally display planes took to the air, scattering lights and fireworks. So uplifting to see and to hear people enjoying themselves.Rain today but we are beginning to emerge blinking into the sunlight.

What a fantastic time ! Love the red Arrows!! Glad you were both able to celebrate your birthday in such style! 🌷🥂

So pleased you had such a wonderful day 2g. I can hear in your post how uplifting it was for you. We are in lockdown where I live today because of the Leeds triothlon with the Brownlee Bros, whose dad used to be the paed CF consultant here. Wish we could all meet up at your fave pub and have a drink with you. Hopefully your joyful day will be repeated soon.
