Our elder daughter has been home with us for the long Easter weekend - what a delight. Saturday was fine and we visited the small Somerset village of Mells and the cathedral city of Wells. (On share my garden.)
But today, just look at the weather, it has rained the whole day long. My water butts, emptied and cleaned last week, are full to overflowing.
Never mind, we stayed indoors and talked and talked until it was time to head to the station for the London train.
Both daughters are dark haired and dark eyed. They can carry off colours that defeat me. Beside them I look somewhat invisible.
I'm dressed for warmth today in a cashmere Boden cardigan and blouse, grey Gap trousers and a pair of socks from M&S.
The blouse is spotted cotton with a scallop trim. It's from this season's catalogue and I'm very pleased with it. The cardigan, in one of my favourite colours, is older. The buttons are stitched onto a velvet band - a very satisfying detail.
