Today is New Year’s Day

It’s 1.15 in the afternoon and we have just finished lunch. I found some sausages at the bottom of the meat drawer so we’ve had those with mash and beans. I was ready for it.

We saw the New Year in then had to wait for the bubbly to settle before any hope of sleep. Fireworks were still being let off at 1am.
This morning saw the New Year’s Day charity dip for the local RNLI so we walked up to the beach armed with the camera. Not so many people participating as in previous years, but the atmosphere was good from what we could tell. A lot of enthusiastic people (and a couple of dogs) went in and a lot of shivering bodies came out.Β  I haven’t checked out the photos yet, so they will come in a separate post.

We haven’t known the tide to be so far out, and again I took pictures as it was beyond these.

We walked back along the shoreline, marveling at the different patterns of sand art, realising we would never see them again as they were unique and would be washed away by the next tide. There were umpteen worm casts, birdie footprints, partial shells and the occasional evidence of razor fish. Two guys were digging for bait using ‘the bicycle pump’, and another was casting his line by the post in my above pictures.
When we got home, we were so hot, bothered, uncomfortable and sweaty, we both had showers. I tried the new shampoo today, Tresemme for Deep Cleansing normal to greasy hair. It’s promising, lathered well and left my locks squeaky clean.

Hope 2022 is off to a good start for you and there aren’t too many hangovers this morning.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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 a lovely start to your year Di. Best wishes.

  3. It’s clear and sunny over here, but not at all WARM. The sunshine is very deceptive, there’s a brisk and very chilly wind blowing out of the canyons and brrrrrr, it’s COLD OUT THERE! Ziggy gets ice between his pads on his feet and gingerly limps back to come inside, where I have a towel and rub his feet. Poor lil’ guy. What a dog has to do to be ‘a good boy’, hmmm? I’m very glad the first day of this New Year has been good for both of you! May the trend continue!
