Letters from a Hill Farm
I would recommend taking along a good Stilton or Wensleydale on your day out. ;)Have a lovely day with your daughter.
Thank you for your birthday wishes!! I just love Wallace and Grommit and I hope you have a fun day out with your daughter!!
Oh yes, we have a 'day out' here in England and visit a stately home, or go for a walk at the coast, go shopping etc. What would call it in the USA? Have a lovely day anyway.
I'm partial to the phrase, "retail therapy"! :)
Nan: I saw that you visited me in RI at 'Ledge and Gardens' so I came over to see you! The day out sounds like fun although I do remember shopping with my daughter was more trying than fun as we have very different taste but we do 'do lunch' together very well! Love the corn recipe and I will have to try that as the new batch is just about ready! What state are you gardening in?
My daughters and I always had a day out right before school started. It involved the mall of course, but the best part was lunch. When they were teenagers the lunches were a little more expensive in nicer places than a fast food restaurant. They enjoyed the time with their mom as I did with them. To this day, I have an urge to gather them together and "do lunch" at the end of summer.
Thanks to each of you for the wonderful comments. We were going to eat at a new Indian restaurant but we were too early for dinner, so we're planning to go down another time and bring Tom. :<) I guess over here we just say, "we're going shopping, or we're going to the ocean, or we're going on a garden tour" but I greatly, greatly prefer a "day out" and it is now part of my vocabulary. :<) Madre Karin, how we laughed at the cheese.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
