Sorry for lack of blog yesterday… I was a bit shattered and couldn’t quite bring myself to think enough to write.
So I should get to the wetting the bed part first as to be fair some of you may only be reading it for this explanation….. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
So…… I got into bed on Sunday night after a lovely afternoon and evening with Doug and Warren… and Craig obviously. I lay down and something felt very wrong. The bed was soaking wet. Totally soaked right through… I jumped up and investigated and could not figure out where it was coming from until….. aha…… lightbulb moment…. I’d carried my water bottle and clothes through wrapped in a towel after my shower late morning. As I cleared up I realised the towel was soaking wet and the water bottle was open so I quickly scooped the towel up and mopped a teensy weensy tiny spot of water that lay on the blanket over the bed.
Job done. Forgotten.
Until 10pm when it was wet and cold and for the first time, in at least 500+ days, we had someone sleeping in our spare room and using both spare duvets. 😳🤯
Suffice to say I did not sleep that well. I slept on two towels with my WonderWoman dressing gown over me (do not even bother to ask why I own one of them?!?) to try and stave off the cold dampness. I’m screwing my face up just at the memory.
Work has been super busy this last few days. I’m loving it and enjoying learning more about it. My level of control is so much better now that I work longer hours.
The only fly in the ointment has been the £400 that I have to pay to the man who’s BMW I reversed into. It all seems above board and I have spoken to and paid the garage directly and they will send me an invoice to make sure I am covered and I’m confident they will do a great job. One stupid moment of lack of concentration…. Boom…. Here you go stranger have £400.
That conversation was happening at blog time last night and I felt so super grumpy I stropped to myself that I “wasn’t even going to bother with the blog…..” that’ll show ‘em 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️😆
Last nights sleep was amazing and I was dead to the world. So lovely when you tell your husband that and he says “yeah and you didn’t even snore….” Really???
It poured with rain this morning at Tartan Camper Land. It was torrential and as the ground is so dry it had nowhere to go so all just formed huge puddles everywhere. I was in my shorts today. 🩳 of course I was….. ☺️
So today’s news is that Jemma Reekie is a runner from my local town of Beith and today she took part in the 800m Olympic final in Tokoyo 2020. She came fourth with a personal best of 1:56.90 and was only 0.09 behind the bronze medal. It looked like she was in with a medal chance until just before the finish line.
I’ve just been to the village pub for a wee celebration that my neighbour Holly put on for her mum and dad and family. They are all so very proud of her as are the rest of Beith. She did so well. she even FaceTimed when we were in.
I was telling them that I watched in the office and was screaming at the phone and then my mum messaged the result in case I’d missed it… congratulated them all.
Apparently she’s now “verified” on Instagram which the kids say makes her very famous. 😁
So this is my view now. It’s lovely and sunny again… and warm despite being 7pm. The dogs have been fed and are playing around in the sun.
I’m much calmer now the bump in the van has been dealt with.
All I have to deal with now is to remortgage the house as our mortgage rate is up and arrange new buildings and contents insurance. Not sure about anyone else but this adulting can be hard work at times eh?!? I’m cool with it when it all goes my way.
Oh and just remembered that the village hall has been treated to some new blinds and finally relieved of it’s old threadbare, scabby curtains.
It’s looking lovely and modern now!
I missed this today but there’s been another announcement about COVID-19 rules relaxing in Scotland 🏴.
I still want to keep a record of all this although we’ve agreed in the pub tonight that life is much more normal than it’s been for a long time and we are all pretty happy with what we can do now so this just lifts the rest of the restrictions.
Think that’s me up to speed now. Just nowhere near as fast as Jemma ran today.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
