Yeah I know I’ve not mentioned this before because you don’t really but we’ve had crazy silvery patterns on our hall rug every morning for weeks now… there are no trails leading on or off the rug and I’ve lifted it so many times to look it’s unreal.
When you live with dogs and your doors open for about 15-16 hours a day you can’t expect your house to be as lovely as the 2 bedroom flat you lived in on your own before you met hubby…. the flat that you put everything away when you used it and hardly needed to do a clean and tidy as it was always clean and tidy. Yes so I have adapted to my new level of cleanliness…. gradually over the years, some days better than others…. some days I can turn a blind eye to the mayhem.
Strangely I have coped remarkably well with slug living in our hall. For some reason when I woke up for the loo at 4.30am I got the fear and thought to tippy toe over the rug very quickly. Like a light-footed 13.5 stone ninja 😬🤣 and sure enough on my return, Sluggy McSluggerson was doing it’s “thang” just slugging around. I shouted out that I’d finally got the wee f&ckr 🤷🏻♀️🤭🤬
Of course after that I was awake for about an hour before I could get over the excitement and fall back to sleep. We were woken this time by small muffled barks or dog yawns…which sound like a cow mooing from our bedroom below the dogs’ room. I tell you, never a dull moment in this house!
So a very productive day, Craig went out to work after all that and I cleaned the living room and the sunroom. Then I reckoned I really needed to sit down… before I fell down and yet I’ve done half of what Craig’s done. Craig says it’s not a competition so that’s good, I’m sat in the sun because I’m tired and it’s not a competition as to who does the most. (We all know it’s a secret competition but I’m allowing him to win, just don’t tell him…)
So on my dog walk today I saw 7 planes…. 2 very high level that seems to be on true same flight path (I really wanted to use the word trajectory here but flight path really does cover it) of course I took a photo!
It seems like things are starting to pick back up as at least 3 flights landed in Glasgow in the hour I was out. I do look at them and wonder who’s on them? Where are people going and why?! We’ve hardly seen any commercial flights over these 11 weeks. Plenty of military and freight planes but that’s been all.
We can only watch and wait and see the outcome of all the Black Lives Matter demonstrations in London and major cities as people have crowded together with not social distancing. 49 police officers were injured as protests turned violent .
The reduction in deaths is great news those as we continue to stay in lockdown on Scotland. It’s still 55 too many. It’s honestly been the strangest of years.
I keep meaning to talk about the price of things during this virus. Craig is having sirloin or rump steaks almost every other night as they are so cheap. I can get them in Asda for £2.75 (rump) and £2.85 (sirloin). There’s an excess of steak due to restaurants being closed.
Fuel is still super cheap due to the fall in the price of oil. It’s just a shame that none of us are really using it! I know the neighbours have all stocked up on oil for their heating due to the cheap pricing.
Stay safe everyone 💜💜💜
