Yesterday was cold, more like winter, luckily not today, but by evening, had turned cold.

Looked in Godalming Parish Church. Candles lit, prayer cards writ.

An interesting and quite moving display on World War One. Shocking the millions killed.

WWI was the result of one fatal shot, and the major players badly misreading and reacting to the events. We are still living WWI, the conflicts in Europe and Middle East, the refugee crisis, are all unfinished business from WWI.

I picked up a few leaflets, which I meant to and did not hand to local businesses. The leaflet was encouraging people to buy on-line from big business, a tiny trickle down to the church. Extremely short sighted. It would be far better to encourage people to shop local, support local businesses, support the local economy.

A walk along the River Wey. It seemed higher and muddier than usual. There was very heavy rain Sunday night.

Cattle in the water meadow opposite, walk into the river to drink.

Lunch at Cafe Mila, which sadly was not up to their usual high standard. Soup was excellent, but the chickpea curry was awful. The service too was not good.

The deli, Godalming Food Shop, or whatever it is called, has changed hands though nothing to say it has. I asked, new man behind the counter and fresh vegetables (which is new).

I returned to Cafe Mila for afternoon tea, only to find they had closed early. Not good, close early, people will think twice late afternoon, then on a downward spiral.

I thought I had missed the bus, then saw it 20 minutes late, so hopped on.
