Days 241 last day of holiday

Ok so I know I don’t exactly have the stressful working life that I used to have but it has been really nice to have a week off from the day-to-day.

I’m antsy today. My head is running at 100 miles an hour and despite attempts to calm it, I’ve not quite managed it through the day.

I’ve struggled with this today

My head has a million things running round it. I dreamt very heavily, woke up with a headache and have been irritated for a lot of the day. I have so many things that I want to do that I’m spending time stressing about not doing them rather than accepting what will be done and what won’t be done.

I see stuff everywhere, everything is cluttered, surfaces covered, things out of place. Honestly nothing is even that bad, it’s my head that’s telling me it is.

I even struggled to talk without being breathless today as my head is running ahead of my mouth. Must be a bad day if my mouth can’t keep up. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️😆

Craig went out to fix a drawer in the van than had collapsed a bit and when I went out he told me my hat was hanging over the near side mirror. Someone must have found it near the van. It was soaking so I left it there to dry……. no prizes for guessing what happened next?!?!? I pottered about and decided to go for a drive.

Heading out the village and I see something fly past the window behind me…. yip… Hat. Of course it was! Slams on brakes, u-turn, back for hat… still soaking…. u-turn… back on my way again.

Headed up to Barcraigs Reservoir.

The view from my first stop
Tidied up the back with my crochet blankets
Tried to find a better parking place

This was a pretty cool view but kind of in a passing place which wasn’t ideal.

Looks like a good place for dog walks

Decided to take a scenic route home. Just put gone into the sat nav and turned a few times against the quickest route.


You have to squint to see this but up ahead there’s a Council van filling potholes. They did not close the road and they refused to move. They were also slinging tar stuff in holes like they didn’t give a damn.

This was the view over to the reservoirs

So there I am with the mini in front of me stuck on a single track road with nowhere to go but backwards. The verges were too soft to turn in so I had to reverse all the way back down the hill until I found a turning point. Good old reverse camera and a bit of nifty reversing!

Went back to the reservoir on the way home and got more photos!

The sky was stunning

When I got back I blackened the floor of the van where the twin seats had been removed. Pottered some more, ate lots of pizza, crocheted but all the while there is an irritation. That antsyness that needs to go.

No it doesn’t!!
I read this and breathe a bit easier

Stay safe everyone 💕💕💕
