Dinner On The Field

 It's been a busy day on intensive care. I got home after 8pm to find my sisters and their husbands ( and my sis in law )on the field grilling sausages on a charcoal fire. We sat eating until dark fell, and blankets and rugs were dished out as the chickens wandered slowly to their beds and the owls started to hoot in the Churchyard Elms

Off to bed.....another full day at the hospital tomorrow

  14. Me and my little brother have grown up a bit, and we do not fight anymore like in childhood. It must feel nostalgic to you meeting your siblings after you all have grown to your 40s or 50s. What do you think John?

  28. One of the things I relish about the summer is al fresco dining and sitting late into the evening with friends and family - a wonderful close to your busy day.
