My Very Busy Day!!

Phew, I've had a busy day today.  I had arranged to meet my friend for a coffee at 10.30 this morning, so I picked her up and we visited a little farmhouse coffee shop. We had a lovely coffee and a scone - 'twas lovely it was. Well we blethered for a couple of hours - I don't quite know how we managed to talk for so long - ok I do know I'm a chatterbox. I didn't think I was, but I suppose I must be, mind you I did have some help.
Anyway after a very enjoyable few hours I came home. 
Karen wasn't working today and wanted to do something with her old mum (that would be me). So we decided to do lunch and then go and take some pictures - she is into that as well now - my wee photography buddy hee hee.  Karen wanted to go to the place I had just left for coffee. They must think I am a bit mad in there! Anyway that's where we went. I had a lovely bowl of sweet potato and leek soup and Karen had her usual chips (you know the healthy food). 
 Then we wandered along the country road - no pavements - squeezing into the side when a car came by. Just as well it is a fairly quiet road. We found some lovely picture opportunities. 

The Farm Donkey (so cute)

This sheep was definately giving me the eye!


Raindrop soaked spiders's web

Lovely Red Berries

Then it was time to go home to get the dinner on.  Such a hard day lol.

I learned a new word...blethered:) Beautiful pictures!!
Here blathered means piddly eyed drunk!!!!!

But I know in Scotland it means "chatted"
- well I hope it does
I would be worried about you Ellie if you
were drunk as a skunk at 10.30!!!!!!

Glad you had a nice day with your friend and with Karen.
Her diet sounds like the 3 here!

Photos are great, love the rainy ones.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I loved all of your pics and liked the sheep the best, my friend. I was born in the sheep year according to the Chinese zodiac sign.
Love you always, Orchid*
