How's your day?

Recommended Posts

Brew, there were lots of people who were overtaking me on the path, but I didn't care as I'd given myself plenty of time to get there

Margie, when we are cycling on the towpaths we are often overtaken by joggers.  It's all good fun though, we have a laugh with them as they pass by.

Have you ever done something really stupid? I did a while ago but didn't realize at the time. I did it again today. 

I started the dishwasher this morning and popped in the capsule and away it went. A while later the floor was flooded like it was the last time I used it.

After wondering why there was so much foam in the bottom it slowly dawned on me to check the capsules. I called myself a *\*{£>¥\*#^{>~*  then had to laugh. I had used capsules for the washing machine. :blush: I should have realized last time as there was a lovely smell inside the dishwasher. 

When I bought them I thought they were the new capsules for d/ washers as I'd seen on tv.

Theyve now been put near my other washing machine capsules away from under the sink.

I hope that is a rhetorical question NonnaB, if it wasn't I could go on and on and on and bore you all or make you laugh so much , so I will keep quiet and keep the little self respect I still have.

So, It's blowing a strong gale, the A9 is blocked by a fallen tree at Golspie and a little further south it is blocked by snow. Hey-ho, Scottish Spring is here.

:faint:

Out all day today for a change........Hucknall  Wetherspoons for breakfast,,not same as Bulwell but was on my way to Kirkby ,so made do.

                  Kirkby not been for a few years,,and like everywhere else changed somewhat.     In the 60s worked in a Vernons store there just for a week or two,,on Station road,,couldn't remember this morning exactly where.

                      Also in the 60s worked in a new 'Savemore' supermarket (marsdens) in what was then a new Precinct.Today couldn't even find the Precinct,,also worked in it in the 90s for Coop............Made do with going in a large Morrisons,,for Cake and Coffee.

                 Like everywhere i go nowadays memories of events and people just tumble back into my mind,,recalled several people i worked with from days gone by........but the biggest memory and funniest was being sent to the Coop to catch a prolific shoplifter,,, ''you'll know him Ben,,comes in every morning about 10am,,WEARING A FLAT CAP'' .................kirkby early 90s man in flat cap......LOL

Steady on Ben I mostly still wear a flat cap, I have done since the sixties, it keeps me head warm and the sun off it. I don't like baseball caps.

Another day working on grandsons garden. That's 6 full days work in the last 10 days - did 9 hours today. It sounds like hard work but I enjoy it. I just like being out doors. Now that I have no French fermette to look after I am landscaping next door's (grandsons) garden. Cleared what had become a wasteland (prev owner) and built 5 raised veg beds with brick paths in between and laid about 20 paving slabs for surrounding footpaths. Also built a patio with old quarry tiles. Looks lovely. Fishing tomorrow :)

I've been getting gradually more tired as this jaunt has gone on..

To be more accurate Boowul Old Folks On Tour have all adjusted to the pace.  There's no rush to do anything.

Going down for brekkie in a minute . 08:15 here.  Then a little last minute gift shopping and hit the beach.  I never normally burn in the Sun but got a bit sore on my nose yesterday. I suppose when I'm on my back it's a bit closer to the Sun:laugh:.  May not get to the beach tomorrow as our flight is scheduled for 16:10.

We've had a fab time though.

Greedy DJ360 took all our sun away. Its freezing cold here , rained all night and some places have snow. Only a few days ago we were enjoying sitting out in the sun and I got a bit of a tan, well a bit pink.

Glad you enjoyed it DJ, now we've got to wait until the sun returns:wacko:
