It’s still sooooo windy but the sky is blue and that will just have to do.
I feel a lot less of life’s stresses and strains when the sun shines. Maybe we are all the same but a good dose of vitamin D really helps improve or maintain my mood.
I feel so full of gratitude on a sunny day. The vibrant colours, the warmth of the sun, everything is magnified. I can sit for hours just looking around and nothing runs through my head except the need to write it all down. 🤣🤣
I had a lovely walk with the dogs again this morning.
I didn’t feel anxious, I felt in control and in command of my little doggy family pack.
I took some arty shots…. 😬
They had a great time running around in the field. Calaidh went off exploring while the other two herd me and try to get me to through a stone for them…. Has never happened once so don’t know why they think I’ll change a habit of a lifetime. 🤷🏻♀️🤣
Every year I’m surprised but these late bloomer daffodils and every year I think I’ve never seen them before….. then remember I’m surprised, every year. The first one looks like the inside of a cream egg!
I had to hold them steady as they were blowing in the wind.
I got home and pottered around and Claire messaged to see if I fancied a cuppa… not seen her in weeks so had a good catch up… on THE bench in the garden.
Then…. Check me… on a Saturday lunchtime… I went for an actual food shopping. I know…. no one is more shocked than me.
Auntie Jac said yesterday that I really needed to think about getting back into some nutrition and being kind to myself by eating the right things. She struck a chord as I know she is right. I’ve been very lazy since we had Norovirus and have been eating my preferred grab and go.
I did a lovely healthy shop and am determined to at least think about what I eat before scoffing.
So, I’m sitting right here as I write. I’ve rushed back to my happy place as Craig is working. It’s a jacket on, jacket off kind of day.
I have been down on the rocks for an hour and a half already.
I’m having a Lidl’s pretzel for lunch. Ok so my healthy eating starts after I’ve finished the pretzel 🥨 🤷🏻♀️🤣
I’m right out on the edge of the rocks. No one can get to me here. No one will walk out here when someone is sitting. I am alone but I am not lonely. I am at peace.
This time I sat for a bit then did some scrambling for some different angled photos and now I’ve found another place to sit over by the castle.
In all my time here I’ve never noticed this giant rock pool.
It’s lovely to get a different angle…
Every rock pool is different.
I love seeing the Scotland flag flying above Portencross Castle.
The tide is coming in fast.
The bit where I originally sat is now under water.
This next one is a panoramic… best viewed if you click in it and scroll through.
I had such a lovely time, I could have sat there all day.
Folk were actually starting to put up tents on the grass at the car park which I think is incredibly rude. It’s not a campsite. I don’t mind if people turn up late in the day but pitching a tent at 2pm in between two benches and one picnic bench seems a bit unfair. Watch out if you want to take over the whole place. A second tent pitched right in front of a couple as they sat reading papers. He took out some kind of chain saw to chop wood into small bits. I mean… come on.
That’s a negative end to my very positive blog. I’ve just been brought up to respect other people and not to start pumping up air beds when someone is sitting enjoying the peace and quiet…
I’m back home enjoying a Corona Cero…. Who knew that was a thing. It’s really nice. There are no tents here to spoil my view 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
