First in three days

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.

About pensitivity101

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.

    I have been cutting my hair myself since the first lockdown. I am glad you have had a really good day 💜💜💜

    I’m considering taking the scissors to my own hair. The worst that can happen is that I’ll need to wait for it to grow and then visit a professional!

  3. We walk in similar fashion…the dogs are getting used to long distance sniffing each other.
    I really like the DIY hair trim method!

    I’m glad you had a good day and your husband is feeling better.

  5. Even though we’re now allowed to go pretty much wherever we want (provided we wear masks inside stores and within 6 feet of each other outside stores), I find that I really no long have any desire to go anywhere unless I absolutely have to. I did go for a long overdue haircut the other day, but as soon as I got home I took a shower and donned fresh clothing – just in case. Glad your husband is recovering and that you are able to enjoy your days a bit more.

    • We’re the same. We go for our walks and avoid people, and shop when we have to masked and gloved. I cut my own hair, and gave my neighbour’s a trim yesterday. I must admit, actually doing anything specific is a bit of a chore!!!
