This was the ferry we hopped on this morning to head home…
It was a sad moment!
I have had such a great holiday – great company, great seafood, the use of the gym, rifle shooting, archery, tomahawk and knife throwing, fire starting, catching up with a lovely lady, seal spotting…peace and quiet in gorgeous surroundings…I did not want to come home. The comparison of what I could do this year versus the first time I visited this cottage at 39st-ish…well – I have come a long way!
I woke at 5.30am and got up a bit earlier than Mr WLB who just grumbled at me! I grabbed breakfast whilst watching the deer on the hill behind the cottage, got dressed, and finished packing. We loaded the car, said ‘goodbye’ to my Mum and aunt who were still in bed, and headed off. We saw some deer on the way to the ferry and I realised just how lucky we were to have experienced what we did…some of the foster kids that my Mum looks after have never even seen a cow in real life!
The journey was okay – not much traffic, but lots of rain and eejit drivers without lights on whilst the spray concealed their presence…how there wasn’t an accident, I will never know. There were a couple of car altercations…I got the ‘V’s from a chap for indicating and pulling out – there was plenty of room, and the outside lane was free for him to move into…but as I watched him for a while, it became clear that I had pushed him out of his comfort zone which was the middle-lane! Do not fret…he got some ‘V’s back from me plus a masturbation gesture…yes, I am a classy lady at times!
I headed straight to see the lady who has been looking after my horses…who let slip that she had been grooming them in the stables…when all she was supposed to do was top up the water in the field and check on them. But she enjoyed herself and they look all groomed and polished! I bet they will be disappointed to have me back!
We then popped to Asda for supplies for the evening, and then headed home. I took the biscuits that I had bought to the lady down the road who I keep an eye on. She filled me in on the noisy dog…it’s still there – much to my disgust…I have purposefully left a hole in my fence hoping that it will escape!
Tonight will be spent catching up on TV – Person of Interest, Revenge, Made in Chelsea…and I also managed to watch some of Badminton Horse Trials this afternoon…so I guess that was a highlight of sorts. It is a bit depressing to be back home…but I will be all good tomorrow…maybe!
Breakfast: Banana and boiled eggs.
Today has been a hungry one – driving long distances always makes me hungry for some reason! So I grabbed my usual brekkie much earlier than usual, and started on my packed lunch at 11am! Half of the nuts and cheese was a good snack. I then had my fruit and chicken, followed by the rest of the cheese and nuts at a later rest break. I was so hungry when I got back that I grabbed some snacks from Asda – more tikka chicken and Nakd bars – and followed this up with steak, roasted butternut squash, roasted pointy peppers, and a mushroom combo that I added garlic, black pepper, chilli, and Worcester sauce to. I am hoping that my hungry head goes to sleep for a while now.
Exercise: Not much…just lots of driving!
