Day 217 lovely wee shopping day with mum 🛍 🛍

Despite the Jeep’s attempt at ruining all my plans this week I still managed to meet mum for a few hours in Braehead shopping centre. Just had to get Abbie the camper back in time for Craig to go to work. It all worked out well except poor mum had to drive all the way over here!

After a late night last night (10.50pm!!!) unheard of for me these days… and mostly due to waiting for Craig to come home so we could have a mutual rage at how hard it seems to be to get parts fo the Jeep… anyway, the point to this is that I was still awake at 6.30am.

Got up, showered and washed my hair…. must be a special day…. and finished some dog behaviour work that I started last night.

Set off just after 9.30 after waiting to see if I had to go to Paisley to pick up a Jeep part but no, my services were not required and I was free to leave 👋🏼

We had coffee then a wee wander round the shops and got my birthday present! As a kid I always wanted ankle boots 🥾 for my birthday, must have been that time of year that I just needed new boots so I got them again this year. Why break a long tradition 🤣🤣 love them and want to wear them now but trying to forget they are there 🤣🤣

We went into Costa for a bite of lunch. There was a very strict one way system of entry and exit. We went up to the “entrance only” to have a couple appear from the other side (the exit!) and get into the queue just before us. The guy then told us that was full for tables and we would have to takeaway. While I don’t want to be one of those people who moans… it’s annoying that they won’t let you wait… and yet they can’t because of COVID-19…. I am one of those people moaning now….. sorry I take it back. He’s just doing his job.

COVID-19 is on the increase again and nurses are reporting that the second wave seems worse. I worry that I may be a bit blasé about it all now and I should tighten up my act a bit.

So home for 2pm and got the loveliest surprise from my friend Andrina! She said just to keep doing what I’m doing and writing the blog!!

A sloth that I can heat up in the microwave and snuggle! A lovely card and wee pocket rainbow 🌈 how sweet is that.

Back out this time with the dogs! 🐶 🐶 🐶

Tried to catch Bhru and Freya racing past this gap in the fence!!
The sky is mean and moody

Back home and put the fire on as the weather had taken a chilly turn today. The sky seems to have brightened up a bit.

I still don’t feel right this week and I just can’t put my finger on what it is? Maybe everyone is the same in the COVID-19 boat and that’s all it is. I’m antsy, irritable and very sad. If I hadn’t met mum today the blog would have been called “Return of the Rat” as Ratty McRattface is lurking. as I drove into the car park today I felt tears well up in my eyes as I knew she was waiting for me. The tears don’t feel far away today.

The fire’s roaring!

So I’m going to sit here and crochet. No pressure to do anything. Everything can wait.

Jeez it’s back to me again… 🥴
While Freya is actually snoring by the glow of the fire 🔥

Stay safe everyone 🔥🔥🔥
