We went to Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.  We walked 6 miles.  We hadn’t intended to, obviously, but she just kept wanting to see a bit more…  We wanted her to walk with one of my Leki poles, but she won’t have it.  Thinks people will think she’s old and infirm.  (Instead of 96 and stubborn as a mule).  She is a bit of a phenomenon.  And the day after that she weeded one of the beds for us.  She looks and sounds so much happier just in these few weeks.  I think knowing that she can be here once or twice a fortnight, that we’re only down the road, that we cared enough to do it – well, I think it’s made a difference. thumb_IMG_4804_1024
