Needless to say after yesterday’s walk I slept like a log and couldn’t open my eyes when Craig got up. He crept about like a wee mouse 🐁 and shut all the doors so I didn’t wake up. So much more thoughtful than I was yesterday. 😆 (the fact that I know he did it all kinda says it all but you know… we’ll give him this one!)
Reminds me of something I did the other day…. we have 3 baskets in the bathroom that we keep toiletries in. One of them (the middle one… Craig’s one… of course!) was full to overflowing and the lid didn’t sit on top… it was driving me mad.
So up and tidied the kitchen and fed the dogs. Outside for coffee and admiring the garden!
I suggested we take a dog walk up the end of the road to the Trearne Quarry. We’ve not been there for years. It’s the site of the old Trearne House.
Have to say it looks really nice in the photos but actually the earth was really soft and riddled with bits of plastic, grass, metal, you name it. The water that is there now is stagnant and looks pretty rotten just like the end of a puddle… and it stinks… so all in all not the best place for the dogs. Think I might go back and explore one day without them.
So back home for a lazy day in the sun I think. It’s so hot. The forecast says a maximum of 21 but it’s been hotter than that for days! I’ve already done two loads of washing and they are dry within an hour. Not sure if folk in warmer climates realise how long it takes us Scots to dry washing in the winter??! Days and days….
Craig’s away down to the Co-op while in lie with my head in the shade and my back in the sun trying to tan the ever elusive back of legs…. actually I’m writing this and I’m finding it can take up to 3 hours out of my day. It’s definitely faster the earlier I do it. If I wait until evening it’s like being on line with the old dial up!!!
In coronavirus news England are easing their lockdown from today and yet it’s different to what we have in Scotland. Our First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, is urging us not to be confused by what Boris Johnson is releasing in England as Scotland is a few weeks behind as our virus spread happened after England.
Over the weekend there have been so many reports of huge gatherings down south. An illegal party in East London. A protest in London for American George Floyd who was asphyxiated by police in the States, beaches have been mobbed. In Scotland police had to issue 797 dispersal notices over the weekend with tourist hot spots like Glencoe and Loch Lomond heaving. We are only meant to be outdoors within 5 miles from our houses. No way all of that is caused by locals up there.
Stay safe everyone ❤️❤️❤️
