Thankfully I managed to get my head out of bed today and the rest yesterday did me some good. Bounding out of bed (ok not quite but I’m thinking motivation here!) at 7.30ish, dogs fed, toast with butter and raspberry jam. Uh-maaaaazin 😋 it’s the most miserable looking morning we’ve seen for a while…. smirry rain (that hardly rain but it soaks you!….. yeah I know…. it all does but you know what I mean) so all suited and booted to head out with the dogs.
Had Beith Trust deliveries at 12 today and I’ve had an extra 4 people added to my list. Did my usual Wednesday run and had a lovely chat with my last lady as I usually do. Then headed back to Geilsland to pick up for my new Beith run. It’s great to meet some lovely folk from Beith and learn my way around the town! Got chatting at my last house to a lovely lady… least I know who to leave until last! Her hair is driving her mad as she can’t get it cut and she is desperate for hair clasps and I said I’ll try and get her some over the weekend. Nothing worse when short hair grows and is in your face, I’ve been there!!
Finished by about 2.15pm and back home for a quick bite to eat before the whole Overland & Borders gang loaded up into the Jeep for the first time since about New Year! (I just asked Craig if he could remember when the 5 of us were last in the Jeep together…… “erm about 15 minutes ago” dead pan….. this is what I live with 😳🤦🏻♀️)
It was such a shame that the first time we got to see Helen and Doug that we had the heaviest rain of lockdown, only saved by the fact they had the gazebo up!! It was so lovely to catch up with them and hear how lockdown has been for them…. also so lovely to have Cookie cuddles!
It was so lovely to spend some time together after so long, so strange not to be in the house or hug them goodbye but Helen said how pleased she was that we’d gone and that she wanted her boy to know she was really glad to see him. She said I knew she’d be glad to see me but she had to tell Craig. ❤️❤️❤️
So a really lovely busy day and I’m only loading this up at 9.30pm which is late for me. We had a takeaway for dinner and Craig and the pups are crashed out on the couch. I will pass out too shortly.
Lockdown has shown us how important our family and friends are to us. We take people for granted in our busy lives and this has been a chance for us to reflect on all of that. Our relationships matter…. a whole lot.
Stay safe everyone ❤️❤️❤️
