Today is Wednesday 7th April

Good morning one and all!

The sun is shining, and through glass, it’s lovely and warm. Outside is a different matter and I got very chilled reading the meters this morning!! All good, and in budget. Hurrah!!

Field trip planned today. We’ve got to go to the bank as the Easter Bank Holiday has thrown my bookkeeping and I want to check. We used to do it by phone, but since they’ve changed it all to voice recognition, that’s not so straight forward as I do Hubby’s accounts too. It’s a good excuse for a drive though, and we can do some basic shopping too, even if  we don’t need very much. It’ll be nice to go out.

I had a better night’s sleep last night, but woke up at 5.30 hearing voices!! I thought they were in my head, and it sounded like two men but I couldn’t make out what they were saying. I nudged Hubby who was just waking up anyway (he’s an early riser) and he heard them too, so got up to investigate. Turned out to be two blackbirds on next door’s roof, probably waiting for the worms to surface.

That reminded me of the thrush on the TV aerial in NZ that would be singing his heart out at 3am! This was definitely not singing!!!

It’s not yet 9am yet I have already seen 4 dog walkers pass our window. Seems they are thinking along the same lines as us and getting out early to avoid the masses. We walked into town yesterday with our neighbour and Hubby got a new flip latch for her gate. I also got some colouring pencils so will be having a little play later with the stencils. More ideas are filtering through the grey matter, but I think it will take a while for me to sort out how to do them. The shop we went into, a hotchpotch of DIY materials, sweets, tins and household  items, was packed, and not many were locals judging by the ‘Look at this’ or ‘We don’t have this at home’. One couple had two children, I’d say about 7 and 8, who were demanding, whiny, and eventually screaming for what they wanted.
Grrrrrr. ‘Go Home!’ Brats.
The bakers was also full and we had to queue for our treat. I’m glad to say the Easter gain has gone and I am back where I should be.

Hope you all have a positive start to your day.
Keep safe and well.

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.

    Your pics reminded me of:

    We are spared the out of towners but the stores were packed with the after Easter shoppers looking for a good sale on hams, candy, and pastries… I ran in grabbed what I needed and got out. I was lucky that the self checkout was open and there wasn’t much of a line!
