10am I woke up this morning…. actual 10am. 😳 could not believe it!!! I had been out for the count since about 10.30pm the night before!! All that fresh air has done me so much good that I “musta needed it!”
Funny when you say to anyone up here that you had a really long sleep then that’s the standard answer… “you musta needed it”. So it’s 5.30pm already and it only feels like mid afternoon to me. It was that lovely subconscious sleep where I was aware of things going on around me like the bin men coming, the dogs barking, but I couldn’t open my eyes…. As soon as I saw 10.00 on the phone I actually jumped up out of bed an action that I wouldn’t recommend and nearly fell over as soon as I’d done it!
I’ve mentioned it before but there’s a lot of anger in Scottish tourism at the moment where locals are under huge pressure from the staycation Scots. There’s been som horrific mess left behind but some locals are photographing any tents and campervans they see and posting all over FB. I’ve had to leave these groups as they weren’t doing my mental health any favours. But the following made me wish I was still a member so I could post these.
So we have decided to finally arrange a camping trip for this weekend! What could possibly go wrong?! We are looking at a camping and Caravanning Club site as we are members and that might keep the locals at bay…. so we trialled the tent again since we sold the Roof top tent. It’s all hoovered out, aired and freshened ready to go.
Then made 3 calls for Pawsitive Solutions and the day has been my own since then. Craig’s been out at work so I have weeded the garden (not certain my lovely pink nails will thank me for it as they are not so lovely anymore…. !)
Also had a call with Claire McWilliams from Beith Trust to see how I’m getting on with volunteering. We had a good chat about how the chance to volunteer has helped my confidence grow and has helped me to start making the Pawsitive Solutions calls. She gave me some great advice on some books to read and podcasts to listen to! Also getting some training courses to do through them. All good.
We’re seeing a huge spike in new cases in the UK just now so we all have to be extra vigilant. Aberdeen and Preston are back in lockdown now.
So yeah, it’s still here, still very much around but I’m very thankful that no one I know has caught it.
Stay safe everyone ☀️☀️☀️
