Today is Tuesday 22nd December

Hello everyone!
It’s Tuesday, and the day dawned so bright and sunny, I thought we were back in the summer. That was until I put my nose outside the front door and a cold wind hit me straight in the face!

Breakfast and minimal housework done (that little sweeper really is efficient and there’s no point dusting while the decorations are up), we went for a walk.
We had a birthday card to deliver down the road, so started by turning right out of our drive. As we were coming off our estate, we stopped to chat with a couple who had just got back from town. They said it was manic, cars going in all directions to park and people barging everyone out of the way. There was no social distancing and people were generally ‘quite horrible’. Made us glad we’d done our last shopping yesterday. Checking the fridge for basics like Hubby’s yogurt, cheese and spread, we are fine until New Year.
From there we went up onto the prom, deciding to turn right and walk towards the clubhouse.  This picture was taken in April 2019.
The tide was going out, but our photogenic post was under several feet of water as it was when I took this picture in August 2019.

There were quite a few walkers down on the beach exercising their dogs. No puppy fix for me today as they were too far away. Several people were up on the prom out to enjoy the day, and we could tell they were locals as everyone was courteous in giving others space.
Rather than walk back along the path that runs parallel to but above the road, we walked a little further and went exploring!
There are several caravan and park home sites that back onto the prom, so there are steps giving access from them to the beach. We decided to follow one set and as entrance to the site is via a security gate, ended up on a windy (and muddy, oops) track that ran behind it. It brought us out about 100 yards down from the hall where I used to go to my Slimming World meetings and added extra to a normal walk, so I guess we must have walked a good mile and a half this morning.
The beach is quite lovely now as there are few visitors. Most stay at the top end of town, so we have it more or less to ourselves. We got home feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Lunch today was pasties, mixed veg and wedges. I made sure Hubby had the bigger ones which weren’t crunchy, and he managed half a dozen. Nice to be able to add something else, albeit cautiously, to the list of foods he can have.

Hope you are having a good day.
Take care and keep 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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Sounds like the expanded diet is, well, expanding! All good news! Here is cold and gray. I’m in the midst of my “cleaning frenzy” so my husband has retreated to the basement to finish his gift wrapping…

  2. Kathy is going grocery shopping today for our Christmas dinner. It is partly cloudy today. Went out last night to if I could find the Christmas Star but couldn’t find it. The skies were cloudy and just dark the disperse. A Merry Christmas to your hubby, neighbor, and yourself.
