I had plans for a walk, a bit of housework, cooking and baking this morning. That all went to pot when I had to go and do some shopping at the out of town retail park. I detest that place. I had to go to four places all located well apart, and found myself just walking through the car parks to get between them all in the most efficient manner. I was there for less than an hour, and could have been even quicker. I never go without a purpose, and can’t imagine that I would ever just pitch up for an aimless wander round the shops there, wandering around the car parks. Bring back the high street. Once home, I did some chores and made some soup with leftover bits and pieces I found in the fridge. I also managed to catch up with my back blips – so for the first time in three weeks I am up to date.
When the boys came back from church, TT and his bad back did some ‘old man’ gardening! I also headed out to do a bit of garden tidying and weeding, and emptied out a load of pots whose contents had not survived the winter.
Late afternoon we all went for a pleasant walk round by the river in the sunshine. The woods were carpeted with wild garlic. I was on the lookout for kingfishers – but wasn’t lucky. We did see one poor lady duck being chased by three admirers. They were funny to watch as they were just running around on the river bank – she didn’t fly away or jump in the river.
We came home for tea – more leftovers!
Here is BB under Waterloo Bridge - which I don't think I have blipped before. I seem to be making a habit of blipping under bridges. No graffiti here though!
