Hubby and I were up pretty early, though he’s always pottering about way before I surface.
I was hot and sticky, so had a shower before breakfast, then thought as it was the start of a new month, why not walk into town and have a 99p breakfast to start the day right.
He was all for it, so at 8am, our first walk there and back was just under 2 miles.
I put the final coat on the window cill when we got back so that we could leave the windows open all day. For non stinky paint, it doesn’t half stink, so the windows will be open again tonight. Saying that though, it’s come up really well. No pictures yet as I have curtains to put up (yep, finally got some!) and want to make sure the paint is completely dry in case they don’t fit or I don’t like them and have to take them back!
Today has been puttering about doing not much. I’ve been blogging and Hubby has been working on his model boat, but has to come up with another plan in order to put the name on it. Dinner today was nothing grand, jacket spuds with tuna and veg, after which I walked Maggie round the Avenue on my own.
It has been gloriously sunny today though, too nice to stay in, damn hot and nowhere cool indoors, so we decided to walk along the prom and get ice cream. This was another two miles in total.
There’s been a lovely breeze, but with the UV index at 8, we needed to cover up.
The tide was out and the beach was busy, with various sized sizzling sausages practically comatose under the sun. Some were already burnt to a crisp, others were red and blistering but the kids were all having a good time, hopefully having absorbed tons of sunblock on their delicate skin.
I saw one woman in a bikini who made me feel like Twiggy. She wasn’t what I’d call golden brown, more tobacco scorched with skin to match so I guess she’s been sunbathing for years.
We got our ice creams and sat down on the steps to share them with Maggie. She settled between us as we kept her out of the sun. She’s been finding it difficult to keep cool so we make sure she has plenty of water available and as much air flow through the house as possible. Our magic mesh door screen with its magnets is keeping the bugs and flies out, so well worth the £3 we paid for it.
I had the camera today and took a few pictures, but not of the beach bodies!
Hope you enjoy these.
Isn’t he gorgeous? He’ll be five on Wednesday.
And these are two further pictures of the gentleman’s garden from my second Colorful post.
