Day 357 I don’t think I was ever this cold in Winter?!?! ❄️❄️❄️

I may have suffered a little dehydration overnight given than my sunburn is a weeeee bit hot. Was awake about 6 ish with my head buzzing away with noise. Nothing significant, just noise. Instead of sleeping I deleted over 3,000 photos off my phone this morning.

I still have this many….. but I was up at about 55k at one point so I am being ruthless.

Mr Sporty Spice left for the gym about 7.30am so I got up, dressed and walked the dogs!

Been a while since I walked all 3 at once.
It’s much cooler today
Spotted these wee guys in a field I’d normally let the dogs run in. Thank god I hadn’t!! 🦆🦆🦆
Also the sycamore trees are starting to bud. They fascinated me last year as I’ve never taken the time to watch a tree from winter through to full bloom
A very old gate and mossy wall

Back home for a 9am poop scoop followed by a coffee and all of a sudden it’s 2.44pm.

It is so much colder today!!! I’ve been outside that whole time with just a thin hoodie and I was cold. My sunburn is cold…. in fact I am freezing!

I did a wee mod on the van this morning.

I’m sure it will improve performance?!? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤣 honestly it’s just bit of bright colour on an otherwise dull interior and I’ve just it just because I can and it cost me £5.99!

I have cleaned the van and swept it outZ all good ready for the next time the pups are in it and put sand all over the seats 💺 🤣🤣

Popped next door for a cuppa!

Lovely to look at someone else’s garden 🪴

Claire made me cheese on toast too! It was amazing…. AND gave me a hot water bottle.

I came home and have my fleece lined hoodie on and my hat…. and 2 blankets and I still can’t heat up….We’re watching the movie San Andreas…. loadsa drama for a Saturday after almost 3 months in lockdown.

So exactly a year ago today I had a drink. For the first time in 443 days of not drinking I decided to have wine as we were told the pubs were to close on 20th March with immediate effect. I wanted to feel normal, wanted to fit in and wanted to be part of the gang. We had no idea what was going on. Life seemed so strange…. our freedom was being taken away from us in a way it never had been before.

My next door neighbour runs our village pub. She had to close down that night with no idea of when she would reopen. I felt that drinking allowed me to share in her pain. Giving the pub one last hurrah…..

I loved holding the glass, loved that it held wine, loved that I finally felt normal again…. but hated the taste. I felt it right to the tips of my toes. It literally felt like drinking poison… yet I had another and another. To be fair, I only had about 4 glasses but felt rotten the following day.

A year ago today our world was changing. I started writing this blog 8 days after Craig and I went into proper stay at home lockdown. I called it day 8…..I have no real idea why I’m only on day 357 now but we’ll stick with it. I must have duplicated some days along the way 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 hey I’ll stick with it.

If you’ve been reading for a while you might remember I got a Hope Blamire original painting for Christmas from Craig. Look what Hope posted on Fb yesterday…

She has the gate bug too!!!

I also got a mention from my blogger friend! Go have a read of The Windsor Waffle.

Now these are stunning gates! Nothing quite like that here!

We have a Chinese takeaway booked for tonight so maybe that will heat me up. Sunshine forecast for tomorrow. Thank you in advance!

Stay safe everyone ❄️❄️❄️

  1. Wow! I’m very chuffed my gate pics made it onto your blog, thank you 😊.I really love your artist’s gate pics with beaches.. they are SO lovely. I haven’t seen a beach (apart from on your blog!) since October 2020 when we went to Wales on our hols. I think that is my new mission for 2021… to visit a beach and get a good beach and gate photo combo!! Hope you warm up soon.. all that crazy mid March sunbathing eh?! Xx
