Today is Tuesday 5th May

Good afternoon! I’m late accessing my blog as we decided on a field trip this morning.
Hubby was given a rather posh mobile phone yesterday as a neighbour has upgraded hers. He hasn’t been happy with the one he has, especially as it tends to dial the emergency services of its own accord unless he turns it off completely.
We thought we’d get him a similar PAYG deal that I have, but to do that, we needed a specific supermarket.
So off we went.
We didn’t need anything else, so it was pure indulgence on our part, though we ended up getting some nice crusty baguettes to go with our stew, I treated myself to a small bar of chocolate and we bought some flowers for our neighbour to say ‘Thank You’.

Sadly we have come home with just that, as the queue to get inside the shop we wanted was tremendous. Last time we went, we didn’t want anything in there anyway so only had to go in three, and had no problems whatsoever. We will have to work on our timing for this one.

Hubby did want something from a shop in the High Street so I stayed in the car and people watched. Several were wearing masks, but it was surprising how lax most of the others were on the social distancing, which made me wonder if they were holidaymakers. The town is as quiet as our own, and the local media believe both will take years to recover, if at all.

Meanwhile on the block we have some new residents.
Well, not exactly in our road, but Hubby walked back round and took these.
The park is some considerable distance from where these little babes were today. Both of us think Momma duck is thinking outside the lake box and bringing her babies inland to keep them safe, or they have recently hatched in someone’s garden.

Keep well and safe everyone.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
