I could just leave that here and end the blog with that. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
So this happened…. Almost 6 hours locked out the house today….. all because I went for a dog walk while my wonderful husband was getting ready to go to work. I come home and the house is like Fort Knox and he’s not due home until 4pm.
Calaidh is equally as sad as she is locked in the house while we are outside.
Now…. It’s hardly oh woe is me…. As I do live next door to a pub which opens at 12.30pm and I discover I’m locked out just after 12pm. It’s hardly the end of the world. It’s also dry and warmish in the sun so Bhruic and Freya will survive outside.
I should say here that yes… it would be a really good idea to get an extra key cut. Yes, I’ve been meaning to for ages. We had one in the pub and the guy who tiled our bathroom had it and it’s never been seen since. Hindsight eh?!
I started gardening … i actually did think I’d have to stay in the garden the whole time… maybe I was being a bit dramatic but didn’t want to leave the dogs out by themselves… but then was rescued by my lovely pub owning next door neighbour!
I got cuddles from Leo the pub dog! I had coffee and a bowl of Tomato and Chilli soup.
So this is my view for the next few hours. I’m really very lucky.
So let’s go back a bit…. I had another great sleep and was in bed from 9pm trying to ignore the screams from the living room as Rangers put Borussia Dortmund out of the UEFA Europa League 6-4 on aggregate. Suffice to say Mr A was over the actual moon last night and he was very vocal about it. Rightly so. they did really well.
The moon was a perfect crescent this morning.
The Fit Body Farm was great this morning. I was buzzing today. It was very hard work and I worked really hard at it too. The sky was stunning again this morning.
It’s amazing how much the ground froze between 5.30am and 7am…. It was wet when I got to the Farm and pretty icy when I left.
I watched a young guy, walking down a path in Stewarton, do a comedy skid on the ice!! He really made me laugh as he caught my eye driving past… he couldn’t believe he stayed standing. His eyes were so wide open with shock! He was looking at me as if to say “did you see that?!”
Then a wee fox ran out in front of me right across the road.
It felt like a great morning to be alive. Check me.
I came home and took Calaidh out for a walk with Holly and Leo next door.
I would like to note here that I did not have a shower at this point as it made sense to walk the dogs in the same gear I wore to the gym. Hindsight…. huh…
The sun was HUGE in the sky. It’s a beautiful morning.
So all good… I come home from the Calaidh dog walk and decide not to shower until I’ve walk the other two…. Again hindsight….. great thing, so I’ve heard.
I spent a couple of hours working on the Gateside Memorial Hall Accounts upstairs in my bedroom office. It was lovely and warm with the sun streaming in the windows. I just needed the ice to melt before I walked puppers 2 and 3.
By 11am the ice had gone and set off out with Bhruic and Freya…. Logically still in the same clothes ready for a lovely warm shower on my return.
It was very muddy now that the ice has melted….
It’s starting to cloud over.
And then we got home and tried to walk through the front door… as locked as a locked thing.
Back doors ditto…… so I decided to start gardening…. And the rest is history.
Here we are now…. Sad and homeless. it started to rain so had to bring the dogs inside.. I’d left my muddy boots at the back door of the pub so they are wet inside. My feet are like blocks of ice 🧊
Most folk would just drink the afternoon away…. Not me, Mrs Choose to be Sober when you could have just got sozzled. 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤣🤣
Chips?!?!? Did someone say chips! 🍟
Is dad ever coming home?!?
It’s now 4.31pm and we’re all having a nap now….
At 4.45pm he walked through the door. Hallelujah!
At 4.49pm I was in the shower…. 🚿🧽🧼
I’ve finally thawed out and am recovering on the couch 🤣🤣🤣 such a drama queen.
Happy Friday night to you all. I am super appreciative of my lovely warm house.
I may never leave it again… just in case.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
