Driving round the countryside

Lyn and I had to go see the accountant today - appointment was not until 3 o'clock.   we left home and went for a drive before arriving in Brinningham - which is where the accountant lives -  It is a beautiful little village here in Norfolk really old world...narrow streets and most of the houses are built with cobble/flint stones

We got held up in a line of traffic - when we arrived at what was causing the delay it was a beautiful Horse being driven by one man on a small cart.  he was prancing along and seemed very happy I just wished I had picked up my camera before we left home...but of course I hadn't.

We did our business with the accountant which didn't take to long, and made our way home.  calling in at the village store at Bawburgh - this is a lovely little shop...far superior to most village stores and the staff are so friendly it is a pleasure to shop there.

Had visitors tonight so all in all we had a very nice day...Nin and Barney came for a ride with us, and other than barking at the accountants cat which did insist on jumping on the bonnet of the car,they were quite well behaved...which for Barney is a first.

We did have a Doctors appointment - at 4pm but when we arrived we had once again got the wrong date not the 16th but the 19th. we really must get ourselves sorted out with these dates.

Hope your day went well......

Yes, sounds like you had a really good day and the journey was lovely. Pity you didn't have your camera but it's always the same isn't it If we take it we see nothing, leave it at home and hey presto! :)

We never have a camera when moments like that happen do we :o(  I'd say use the reminder service on aol for appointments but if it's anything like journal alerts then perhaps not LOL...My journals gone all iffy again and not sending alerts out <sigh>  Caff xxx

I will have to remember to start taking my camera with me.    The dogs seeing the cat jump on the car must have been interesting, lol .    I try to keep appointments straight but am off by a day or so sometimes myself.    mark

I am glad you and Lyn had a good day, a busy one too with having visitors in the evening. That cat was asking for trouble jumping on the car while Nin and Barney were looking on!!! Hope the doctors appointment on Thursday goes well.......Jeanx

LOL! Good for Barney, and Nin! Trying not to laugh about the second "early" appointment. Hope you do get the dates sorted, and there isn't a 3rd. lol.   ~Deborah
