Another small triumph today followed quickly by a second.
The first was having a shower and washing my hair therein on my own.
It doesn’t sound a lot I know, but it’s still awkward raising my right arm above my head, so instead I took my head down to my arm to lather up. I then stood under the showerhead and let it rinse me off, using my left hand to eek out the suds. Result and one very pleased (and clean) me!
Drying it isn’t so bad as I just add my anti frizz stuff and comb it through to the ends, then attack with the hair dryer for about ten minutes. I bought two new scrunchies yesterday so I’ve tied it back as normal.
The second thing was a long walk. Not as long as we have done of course, but today my goal was to walk round the park to see what they are doing to the lake as they have been draining it.
This is looking down towards the far end of the park towards the white bridge which marks the half way border.
The water level is at least a foot lower than usual, and any fish were supposedly ‘stunned’ and removed. We doubt many, if any, survived the chlorine treatments of a few months ago, and saw a small dead carp floating on the top.
The ducks are as numerous as ever though, and geese numbers have fallen back as the majority of the flock have moved on for the winter.
This is the view from the far end of the park looking back towards the bridge from the other side.
I couldn’t resist taking this picture of two gulls on the swinging mooring board.
I’ve given it the caption: Guess the new diet’s not working for you then.
We finished off with a walk round the block so I’ve done exceptionally well today.
I cooked dinner too. Hubby had fish whereas I had my tomato pasta, adding some odd mushrooms and sliced peppers.
I’m tired, but it’s a ‘good’ tired, and that’s me done for the day now, so I’m just going to laze around and blog for a bit, then might take a nap.
