Last week, these three things made life beautiful:
1. On Thursday, a friend on a flying visit up north finds time before a long-drive home to come and see us.
2. Home-made baked beans, herby mushrooms, balsamic cherry tomatoes, locally sourced sausage, bacon, a baked egg, malted toast – breakfast at Fyg Deli in the northern quarter on Saturday.
3. Yesterday, we escaped to the Peak District again, this time to Combs Reservoir and surrounding area. No wind, no rain, only peace and quiet and a little bit of sunshine.
