I had invited her to my home for tea/coffee, she had an appointment in the local high street first, but she suggested we went out for coffee and then for a walk. When I considered this it seemed almost alien to me, I am used to going to friends' houses for coffee and chat, if Ian and I go out, say to Kew Gardens, we would have tea and cake, but it isn't something I have ever done with girl friends, yet it seemed quite routine to J. Notwithstanding my doubts it turned into a lovely afternoon, we went to the Pheasantry Cafe in Bushey Park, gluten free carrot and nut cake cake and Earl Grey tea provided plenty of energy for walking around the Woodland Garden.
Didn't manage to photograph the rabbits, but did attempt to capture this heron on my phone
It was good to walk, talk, laugh in the fresh air, much better than sitting in our stuffy house, all part of my attempt to try something new.
Nowadays I just use my phone for photos as it has more pixels than my camera, by magic the pictures appear on my iPad, also photos of Edward sent by Whátsapp end up there too. I am not so pleased with my attempts to take photos with my iPad, however that comes into its own for FaceTime instead.
