Things have been pretty up and down this week, and in all honesty the weather has been dire, so donning waterproofs, hats, gloves and boots have not held much appeal.
Hubby walked on his own yesterday afternoon as he was feeling better thanks to the antibiotics, but my back was still playing up, so I stayed home.
He had a blood test this morning and the numbers are going in the right direction, but he’s booked for another next week. We did a bit of shopping, then came home and invited our neighbour in for a cuppa. She stayed for about an hour and a half, enough time for two cups of tea and a hair trim. I mentioned I’d done mine a couple of days ago and she said she needed one, so I offered. I’m no hairdresser as these pictures from the boat in March 2016 show, but I cut off about an inch and a half, and it looked tidy, so she was well pleased. Of course I didn’t cut hers this way!!!
This is October 2018 and I’m actually looking through it having brushed it all forward.
Anyway, after she left we had lunch, then went for a walk round the park while it was still nice. We took along some old bread for the ducks (and the five resident geese, so don’t tell anyone we fed them too) and were swamped by about 50 mallards including the forever vocal Geraldine. We managed to ensure everyone had a few crumbs, then went on our way intending to go up on the prom. However, there seemed to be a lot of activity ‘up top’ and a guy we didn’t recognise was coming down the slope with three dogs, so we walked along the back road instead.
It was still a pleasant walk, but there were quite a few people about, many of which we didn’t know. Our plan these days is to avoid everyone and keep ourselves to ourselves other than acknowledgements to our friends from the opposite side of the road if we see them. Luckily, everyone is of the same mind, so no-one is offended.
It’s actually been a good day.
