Sunday 14th March 2010
The temperature this morning was in the plus - what a change;
(it was minus 7 again yesterday morning at 06:15, let's hope that the freezing mornings are now behind us)
The day dawned very promising and the sun soon appeared - along with the wind - it has been nearly gale force and very chilly!
a daffodil (narcissi) for mothers day
this is the first open one I've seen - albeit my pots have been under the pram hood since mid-December
We went to the Saracen's Head for lunch just instead of having to cook, (appart from the fact that I need a Tesco delivery soon) - we'd been there for Sunday lunch about 18-months ago and it was nothing special, rather ordinary food at a reasonable cost. We are moored about 1.5 miles away and walked there because it is the closest pub - there was a set menu on for Mothers Day 3-courses for £17.95!! But we stayed and ate, the roast beef was a bit tough, but the pudding - Baileys Panna Cotta - was absolutely delicious!
Looking towards Weston on Trent at 18:30
I've spoken to the kids this morning after opening cards etc and all in all have had a good day
