For the first time for ages, Dropscone and I went round the morning ride together (I am still borrowing his bike) and had a sociable cup of coffee or two afterwards. The wind was pretty strong and there was no chance of a specially good time but the weather was otherwise kind.
After coffee I had time to mow the lawns and in the evening Mrs Tootlepedal took her strimmer out and edged one of them and she always likes a neatly edged lawn and I must say that I like it too, especially when someone else does the edging.
In the afternoon I did my usual stint in the tourist information point at the Kilngreen. This was re-vamped in the great Langholm makeover by Ty Pennington last year and it looks very smart on the outside.
One of the volunteers, Gunter, has taken a lot of trouble with the interior and it always impresses the visitors when they come in. I had two sets today so I wasn’t exactly rushed off my feet but I used the time to do the Guardian crossword and a Herald difficult Suduko so I was quite content.
In the evening, we entertained Dr and Mrs Tinker and I enjoyed a good tootle accompanied by Mrs Tinker which rounded off the week very well.
