Splat!

‘Don’t fight it, splat through it,’ Hubby said on our walk this morning.
We had just emerged from the Bunny Route and turned left to go down towards Humphrey’s Stump. Where trees had fallen and the centres cut out by the forestry commission guys, it was pretty muddy underfoot.

splatI was tentatively trying to walk along the outskirts rather than risk sliding in the mud.
In the past, though not here, I have been known to slip and land on my backside.
Once, before I started to wear steel cap boots, I lost my shoe in a muddy suction hole, and without thinking tried to retrieve it with my toes. Those were the days when I didn’t wear socks, and even though I squelched a bit, I had the added bonus of exceedingly soft skin after the event.
Hubby has a unique way with words sometimes. I mean, who else would come up with the label ‘Splatty Tatties’ for boring herby tatty (potato) cakes.
But it would appear that there is a lot of money to be made in Splat Merchandise.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
