It’s been a bit of a funny day today.
We woke up to grey skies and drizzle, but by 7.30 the drizzle had stopped though it was still overcast. We had a lot of washing to do and as the weather was going to be even worse tomorrow, thought we’d do it anyway and take it up to the launderette to dry.
I was taking our neighbour shopping this morning as her son and the family were coming to stay for the week and it would have been too much for her to bring back on her own, plus she’s hurt her back and there’s no way we’d see her call a taxi for shopping!
I had some stuff to get anyway, so we had a trolley each and did an amicable trolley dash like Supermarket Sweep.
What she spent for the week is what we’ve just spent stocking up for the month, but then there are only two of us and now 5 of them, so it all works out pro rata I suppose.
The weather turned glorious so the washing was put out and has dried beautifully.
We had a walk in the park this afternoon, taking up some seed as the geese aren’t usually there during the day now. The holiday season is getting well underway, there were a lot of boats on the lake and the beach is packed.
We settled down to feed the ducks and their babies when a woman passed us shaking her head and said
‘There’s a sign you’re not to feed the geese you know,’ to which we replied
‘We’re not. We’re feeding the ducks.’
‘Well you’d better not be feeding them bread!’ she added angrily and stormed off.
Enjoy your holiday ma’am we thought and carried on chatting to our feathered friends at our feet who were having a good nosh on the seed.
Then Radar turned up: ‘I am a duck, Honest!’
All pictures taken with my phone today.
On the way home I was invited to pick some apricots rather than have them rot on the tree, so I picked a fair amount and we’ll have a crumble tomorrow.
I took a few to SW for the Slimmer of the Week basket, and am pleased to say that I have stayed the same this week. No loss or gain, so I’m well pleased, and pleased for my two friends who lost one and two pounds, and also someone I discovered lives in our road who lost the half a pound needed for her four stone certificate! She’s just two and a half pounds away from target, so I’m rooting for her next week.
My blogging has sort of taken a back seat and I have a couple of challenges in my WIP file which I may get round to, though I see time is pressing on and it’s nearly Tuesday!
