Field trip 24 April

Skeg won, as it’s market day the other way and a bit iffy to park.
It was a long way to go for lasagna sheets though, so naturally we bought other things.
There is a place we stop en route where we let Maggie have a short run and potty break.
You may remember us finding this when we stopped here last time:
I didn’t have the camera today and we walked on the other side anyway, but Maggie was content to sniff and do the business in her own time.
I am a somewhat sad individual as I was trying to work out how many Seaside Buses there are as they all have names. We saw Shelly, Salty, Rolly, Pierre, and Sunny, but there are also Sally, Millie and Mollie that I can remember. A few years ago they put in a bus/taxi lane to reduce traffic congestion which is working pretty well, especially as there is a large Butlins Holiday complex on the outskirts which was really busy today.
We were relatively early going in and able to park in the High Street, just a few yards up from our favoured bakery, so lunch was sorted (hurrah, no cooking!).
The tins are well in date so the corned beef hash is waiting in the wings for another day.

Skeg was busy as you would expect, but not as busy as we’ve seen it. It was interesting to people watch as we ate our lunch in the car having first given Maggie a much needed drink. She has been so good lately.
We then went up to a retailer of tools and hardware for some rubber nitrile gloves as Hubby noticed he was getting low. We never like to run out because they come in handy for decorating, mucky jobs like cleaning drains, and of course pest control!
Hubby has purchased some rat bait as we have runs in three places that we can see. Our neighbour mentioned to us today that there was a fresh gnawing site at the bottom of his garden that backs onto ours and he could see a run there. We found it yesterday so put a trap there and now bait at the entrance. Maggie can’t get anywhere close so she’s safe.

We were home by 3pm, having stopped off again to give her another walk.
It’s been a really lovely relaxing day and it helped that the forecast thunderstorms are nowhere near us. We had some rain, though I could practically count the drops that fell!

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
