You see, Friday I had plans to ‘go out to play’ (as children have it) and soggy February weather is NOT enticing. And on Saturday mornings it almost (nearly almost anyway) turns out sunny – as Saturday morning is Honey Pot morning and, as my friend Mary SK says "Another lovely Honey Pot morning! You are so blessed by the weather on Saturday mornings." Which is true. Far more Saturdays were sunny and bright than were not, last year. The sun pours into our garage and people arriving wrapped up in warm coats, hats and scarves, begin to divest themselves of a few layers as the warmth of the sun works its magic.
It has been so dull, damp, cold and dreary, with the world news so depressing and at times plain worrying, that I decided it was time to cheer everyone up!
So, think of us this Saturday morning – the Honey Pot (and the house) will be open at 9.00 a.m. for an ‘end of winter’ celebration – a continental breakfast with all the nicest things I can think of, flowers on the tables and (as I had hoped) sunshine pouring through the windows…….. with a collection basket for the Haiti earthquake relief fund, so that we can do a bit a of good across the world, as well as amongst our neighbours.
It does people good to get out and do something different, once in a while – and round here ‘breakfasts’ are not the norm (especially those eaten in a garage in February!! A number of people asked me whether it would be outside – to which the answer was ‘only if you want to be!)
Thinking about it – the sunshine would be lovely, but if I turn a few lights on, play some springtime music and fill the place with flowers and cheerful faces, I think the sun will be shining on the inside! Let’s hope!
Oh, and if you are in the area, pop in and see us – but come early if you want a croissant!
