It is now 3.30 in the afternoon and I have just accessed my blog.
The day has been warm and sunny, the washing is out on the line and we’ve had a field trip.
Our plan was to go early, but when I turned my laptop on this morning, I could have walked round the block before I got to the sign on screen, everything was S O S L O W.
Hubby did a bit of behind the scenes digging and discovered a few things going on not of my making, so we did some housekeeping. Skype was opening sessions for no reason and our antivirus checker was fighting another we didn’t even know we had on board!
Anyway, we got away by 9.45.
Traffic was building up but at least moving until we hit the main road into town, so turned off and went in the back way. Local knowledge comes into its own then.
We ended up parking a considerable distance from where we wanted to go, so had a good walk to start the day!
The town was heaving. So many people, and nobody giving an inch. Wearing masks, two of the few who were, we tried to keep socially distant, but were barged and shoved out of the way by impatient types trying to get into cake shops or takeaways, and the one way system in the shopping arcade was totally ignored as people came at us from all directions.
We got a few things we saw on special offer, then escaped back to the High Street pretty sharpish.
We were hoping to find some footstools but there was no way I intended to pay £65 for a sheep or hippo to put my feet on, smilingly cute or not.
We had a cup of tea and snack in the car, then went to one of the other supermarkets we frequent for cleaning stuffs. Turns out I have loads in the cupboard which had got pushed out of sight when Hubby was having a clear up. Never mind, I’m set for the next year now!
