We hadn't prepared for the public holiday, the shops were all closed, so milk was strictly rationed today, for Philip's porridge and a limited number of cups of tea and coffee. Basking in the after glow of our strenuous day climbing a mountain yesterday, I felt no obligation to do anything useful. Friends dropped by for coffee (black), it rained a little, Philip was busy polyfilling around the new windows. I continued making and unmaking my five metre cushion for the bench on the terrace,the ends don't want meet in the right place, will persevere tomorrow. I might have to tack the seams in place first.
