We all have them when we or our partners want to do our own thing and/or offers of help aren’t wanted. We’re left dangling wondering what to do with ourselves, can’t settle and feel basically like a fifth wheel and in the way.
After the door episode, we haven’t had a mosquito net curtain up so the door has remained closed or on the safety chain to try and keep the flies out making airflow indoors minimal.
Hubby went out and bought a new curtain this morning, but things were not going well putting it up so I kept out of his way.
After breakfast, I took the dog for a walk on my own, deciding to walk through the park and up along the prom.
What’s wrong with this picture?
It was gone 10am and apart from half a dozen ducks, the lake was empty.
The ducks don’t seem too worried about the green algae as they were paddling contentedly and feeding on it. Although we’ve seen no sign of any dying fish, we have seen NO FISH at all, so it’s possible they have all died and will float to the surface in due course.
The ducks above were tufted ducklings and kept diving under the water. First there were seven, then 5, then only 3, then they all popped up again!
The edge of the water was teeming with flight feathers, which makes sense as the geese will be flying soon.
I met and chatted with several people this morning, two were visiting though lived only five miles away, another couple were on holiday, and a single male was interested in the photos I was taking and made conversation about the lake not being drained last year.
I walked up to the prom and it was quiet on the beach too.
I took these from the same spot but in opposite directions. Still hard to read the screen and focus when it’s sunny, so it was a point and hope job. The colour contrast is interesting!
A lot of the beach huts were occupied though, and the cafes doing a good trade, so the Summer is arriving and as the schools break up next week, the town will be really busy.
Coming back into the park, I found the geese.
All are getting ready to fly as they were preening and bathing themselves. I’d hoped to get a couple of shots of ‘bottoms up’ but the phone wouldn’t co-operate and I couldn’t see the screen because it was so bright.
I tried again to get a picture of the yellow roses in the park, but no joy. One of the houses on the Avenue had a single bloom which I’d previously missed, but even that isn’t well defined.
I think my lovely purple/pink flowers from the other day could be delphiniums.
