Tuesdays always used to be Darts Night, though I had already decided not to play for this Summer. Walking along the prom the other day we met up with a fellow player from another team. We always seemed to get drawn against each other and I think we’re equal in games won and lost. She’d also intended not to play this time, but admitted she was surprised how much she didn’t miss it.
I was thinking about if they would plan a Winter league in the circumstances, though it wouldn’t start until September. However, that is not actually that far away and I for one would not be happy going to crowded pubs or clubs just now.
In the meantime, Hubby and I continue to play in the hall, and I’ve actually won the last few sessions.
We didn’t get up on the prom yesterday, but did walk round the park. I took the Nikon in the hope of seeing the goslings or ducklings, but only saw the former from a long distance, so even on zoom it wasn’t worth taking a picture.
It was quite lovely
There were a few people about though
The group above are locals blatantly disregarding social distancing and were discussing their rents. Judging by the language, they are not happy about the increases.
We seem to have new neighbours across the way, though apart from nods and waves in passing, we haven’t introduced ourselves. We’d noticed the previous occupants had gone away, we thought on holiday, but we didn’t see them for a couple of months and wondered if they’d been stranded abroad. Then we noticed a different car in the drive, and a van turned up, out of which a double bed was unloaded, then drove away.
No-one seems to know what happened, though next door said the property had been rented at one stage. Oh well. Hopefully I won’t have to ask them to keep their music down.
Today is Tuesday and our weekly shopping trip. We are going to see if any more shops are open in the hope of getting me a new laptop. This one blared at me this morning as soon as I switched it on!
If you have trouble finding a laptop, Di… Amazon have a range of refurbished (good as new) for bargain prices…
Thanks for the tip, Hubby has checked out quite a few and the problem is delivery dates……… they can’t give one.
I’m not having any trouble with their deliveries!
I know he checked Amazon and he’s pretty thorough in looking things up as he used to fix them. DELL had a couple of great offers, but couldn’t give a delivery timeframe as each was built to order.
Life gets better and better, doesn’t it?
Hope you get your laptop Di. I keep threatening to get one, but need to find outwhich is the best one for blind people. Good luck with the shopping! Always a trial these days. Who would have thought life could change so much! Simple shopping trips becoming marathons. We saw a lovely swan the other day, and hubby took a photo but it looks very far away in the photo, yet itvwasn’t really apparently. Pigeons are still making egg in our gitrer above our bedroomm window lol. Have a good day Di x
no new laptop as everywhere is still shut, but never mind, I can manage.
Shopping was nice and straightforward, no queuing and done in two shops. Home within 2 hours. Lunch was a takeout so microwave job, and we’ve cut the grass back and front today. Washing now in. 😀
A good day then. We are just off out in a short time. After my coffee and walnut cake lol
Good luck with your new neighbors. Did hubby’s test turn out ok? I am also surprised that your friend doesn’t miss darts.
The new people seem OK though we don’t actually see much of them. Hubby’s INR is 2.5 so he’s ‘safe’ but his range is between 3 and 4 so he has another test booked for next week. The darts colleague is younger than me and still working (or was, I’m not sure what she does). I’ve been in touch with my team by text just to say Hi. The chap up the road who asked me to play for his team this summer then decided against putting one in before all this kicked off says he doesn’t miss it very much, but the guy Hubby used to play pool with on our home matches misses it and his pub mates.
Just getting outside and walking seems a luxury in this uncertain world. Glad you still can play a bit of darts. We are staying out of crowds ourselves. Everyone has to decide what risk they are willing to take. Take care and enjoy the critters – even if they don’t cooperate for photo sessions – they are just a joy to see sometimes without a lens in between.
We love to watch them. The adults can be so funny too but they seem use to us and don’t fly off or panic. If they start to hiss, I tell them to shut up and they look really surprised! I;m not daft enough to push my luck where babies are concerned though.
