I had a great lie in today – once again in the spare room to save me waking up hubby with my coughing. It is so nice to cough freely!
It wasn’t too long between showering and lunch, so I had soup and a roll for brunch! After a bit of faffing we headed out for a walk before the forecast rain appeared.
Not 5 minutes after we set off and the rain started.
It was really still, so it was gentle rain just falling out of the sky – not the driving stuff that gets down your neck! So, it not being too bad we continued on and up to see a new wind generator that we watched being put up with a huge crane earlier in the week.
Close up it is huge – but in a good way! I love these wind turbines – such a fabulous sight. This one is at the local organic egg farm, so will run the electricity for the chucks!
We also stopped and had a chat to some sheep – I love sheep! These ladies are looking very round – I hope we have lambs soon!
By 2 miles my legs were getting wet through my now soaked trousers. I made it worse by deciding on a bit of ‘Big Society’ and clear a couple of drains on the lane that were blocked with leaves. It was very satisfying to see the water finally drain away, but it was all a bit messy so now I’m soaked, wet legs matched with wet feet and mud all over!
The last mile and a half was done quite quickly to get home to the warmth and some dry clothes – not to mention a nice cup if tea!
As I type my jacket is in the washing machine – that’s the second load – all our other clothes got done first. Having said all of that, I had a great time and yes, it was worth it!
Dinner time! We have baked salmon steaks marinating in soy sauce, orange juice and rind, chopped stem ginger and a chopped red chilli – we will have that with some celeriac mash and peas. Mmm! Can’t wait!
Tomorrow it’s back to the office. Boo.
Have a marvellous Monday!
