Today was one of those semi-retirement days I have come to appreciate. We took the train in to Leeds to stock up on books and then on the way back Tony suggested stopping off for lunch at Lady Bs Cafe in the Park - unexpected but very nice indeed, as was the Broccoli and Cheddar soup!
Tony drove to the garden centre to search for cucumber plants and I walked home via Coppice Pond armed with a box of duck food from the cafe. I soon became very popular! In the middle of the activity was a mallard family with several ducklings and I thought this the cutest!
