This morning I made a good start on clearing the upstairs sitting room for occupation. The many pictures have been stacked up for final sorting – those for passing on, others which have frames that may be useful to Charity Shops, and those which can be ditched. Eventually various items of furniture will find their own positions.
This afternoon I posted:
Later, Jackie and I took a forest drive.
Our first stop was on Brockenhurst Road where ponies often gather and vie for shelter beneath two spindly trees.
An equine Kindergarten was taking place at the corner of Rhinefield and Meerut Roads. It was sleep time for the younger foals.
Further along bright woodland reflections lit the surface of the stream slowly flowing under Rhinefield Road.
This evening we all dined on tender roast lamb; roast potatoes, including the sweet variety; firm cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli, with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden; Becky, Zesty; Ian, Moretti; Flo, Elderflower Cordial; and I more of the Cabernet Sauvignon.
