A bad idea…

Leave a comment

After a few glasses of wine a paddle in the river seemed a good idea…. the scrabble down the banking resulted in nettle stings…. and disturbing the midges even worse! Now holed up in my friends van drinking more wine to kill the itching!

Cumbrian midges are just as bad as Scottish ones! Hopefully won’t be as bad in Jedburgh!! But then again it will just be me and Sprout, so chances of making bad decisions through alcohol are slim!!… god help me on our next trip though!

A quiet day…

Leave a comment

I decided against going out today… my friend is away out to get more wine and shopping but I’m feeling a bit delicate… and decided to tidy Alice Alice and chill…. I also had to fix the dog gate (superglue is a marvellous thing!) as one of the legs came loose after a very bumpy drive yesterday.

I put together the new hoover (which took me ages because my brain wouldn’t work!) and took all the empties to the bins! But that will be the limit of my efforts for today!

The sun is just beginning to peak out and I think a wee bbq is on the cards tonight… not sure how much wine I will manage though… I’m definitely not cut out to be a party girl very often these day!

For now I’m chilling and trying to get rid of my hangover head!… and hoping that not too much wine is on the cards tonight as I have a long drive up to Jedburgh tomorrow!

Another thing I learned

A wee bit different

Leave a comment

We all have our own ideas about how things “should be” and what we expect from life.

Arriving here in Cumbria has taught me a wee lesson, in more ways than one!

What we perceive as being perfect is often not… and what we first think as “not what we want” often gives us much more pleasure and joy than we first imagined!

I shall give one example… the loo and shower here are very different… basically each is housed in a shed with a red light that comes on when occupied ( or as it was referred to last night ” the shite light of shame”)… I was a bit doubtful about them to be honest… but they are great… different, quirky and they make me smile!

Sometimes it is the least expected thing that makes you smile!!
