Day 886 the Fit Body Farm, 🏋🏻‍♀️ dog walk, 🦮 the AA annual renewal 😱 and a lovely huge lunch out!

It was the sweatiest of workouts this morning. 🥵🥵🥵 we worked really hard at the Farm this morning and if it’s possible I seemed to wear the thickest leggings and T-shirt I own. Bad move with so much running this morning. 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️

I took Craig’s car as Abbie the camper van still has super glare full beam lights so I had a wee luxury drive there and back without dazzling anyone! I have bought the part I need, just need to get it fitted and she she should be back to normal soon.

As soon as I got back home, I took my sweaty ass out with the dogs.

It was threatening rain but we managed to stay dry. I had a shower as soon as I got home!

I made the best smoothie for breakfast… an Alpro Protein Yoghurt, mixed with banana and oat milk. It was so good and great idea after a work out. I’ll make that again.

So… I decided to call the AA this morning to renew my breakdown cover this morning….

That’s a few hours of my life I’ll never get back.

(I should just say here for my stateside sober friends the AA is the Automobile Association and not Alcoholics Anonymous 😂)

Why is this kind of stuff so hard?!?! I’m an intelligent person (hey…. Shut it 😆) and jeezo that call was hard work. Every single year I have to phone them to remind them that we get some cover through the bank and to reduce the renewal they give me.

Finally went from £42.40 a month to £22.64 and THEN a one off payment of £70.19 and that’s us got the same breakdown cover we had this year. Done. Dusted. Why hours on the phone for that?!? Worth it though I guess!

So I met my friend Carol-ann for lunch today. Now we don’t meet up very often, the last time was a year ago but we’ve decided to make it a quarterly event!

We went to the Linwood Farm and had a THREE course weekday lunch for £9.50. A huge portion of garlic bread, a carvery main course and brownie with ice cream for dessert.

And we talked the hind legs off of several million donkeys. 😆

We put the world to rights in a big way. And what a giggle!! It was honestly the most refreshing 3 and a half hours spent with a lovely lady!!

A lovely way to spend an afternoon!

It’s still been a bit surreal after the Queen dying yesterday. We now have a King. That’s the strangest thing to say. The UK is a bit crazy just now and I just think losing the Queen is another huge change that we weren’t really ready for. She was a constant in an ever changing world and commanded a unique respect in the world. When you said the Queen, the world thought of her.

Here’s a selection of what I’ve seen today. Lovely tributes.

This is the flag on the Waverley paddle steamer

I have my feet up now, may never eat again and will no doubt have a super early night.

Here’s to a great weekend!

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
