Today is Tuesday January 4th

It is a beautiful day here, cold and bitter wind aside, so after breakfast we walked up to the prom to see if there was any storm evidence apparent.
We had flood alerts yesterday, though flooding to property was unlikely, and people were advised to keep away from proms, defense walls and low lying areas along the coast at high tide.

It was just after 10am and the tide was still going out. I was glad of my hat and yellow coat to keep the chill out, but our hands suffered, even though Hubby was wearing gloves.

I snapped this because it looked interesting:
You might think kids had been building sandcastles, but when you see the full shot, you get an idea of how far up the beach the water actually came this morning.
There were quite a few people about on the prom but on the beach you could see clearly that it stretched for miles.

Back home it was a case of putting the kettle on for a cuppa and lighting the gas under the pressure cooker. We’re having stew today as I found a full stewpack at the bottom of the freezer so added potatoes, garlic and an onion plus two pints of stock before we went out. That should see us OK for three days.

I went through the new SW paperwork last night with my trusty hi-lighter and not much has changed. They’ve combined the diet plan, speed food, free food and syns lists together with the Body Imagery in one book top to bottom (so half is upside down) and the weigh in record is in another describing the way the plan works and planning your progress. I preferred the SW Bible and weigh in record in one book, but will now have to refer to two. I’ve kept all the others though so still have all of  my certificates.
I was in and out of the hall in about five minutes as I was very early and no-one else had arrived yet. Our consultant has it all very well organised with limiting her numbers and keeping seats apart, but in all honesty, I cannot see me resuming attendance to group. Some might think I’m silly, but there are so many variables with 30 people or so I no longer know, I am just twitchy and prefer to play safe.

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.

    I felt cold just thinking about it Di!

  2. We are all twitchy these days!

  3. When I googled “what is a prom” it came up formal dance. Unless you and Hubby are out dancing I’m not sure what a prom is! 🤣

    I went to my Rosary Society meeting (where I’m the youngest person there) and of the 15 ladies there only 3 of us had masks on! It made me very nervous… I understand the concern and the wariness.
