A nice trip out for the old git
Woke about 0400hrs, couldn’t nod off again. Lay there thinking of the horrible dreams I’d been having. Thought I might record em on this bog. By the time I’d gotten downstairs made a cuppa and me porridge, I couldn’t remember em, huh!
BT internet in and out again this morning.
Found missed call, voice-mail message (that I could not hear), and text message from Big John Wayne me mate. Said he’s going to Papplewick Pumping Station today, and he will ring me in the morning (today).
Got some blogging done despite BTs best attempts to foil and frustrate me completely.
Rang BJ, and agreed to go with him and his better half Julie.
I had to be at his dwelling a 1230hrs.
Did me ablutions (No blood, hurrah!). Dizzy spell whilst having a wash and shave.
Set off on me walk to Sherwood to BJs house.
We set of and got to Papplewick about 1300hrs.
Great walk about, and natter to many folk there. Despite the rain, we all enjoyed it, me very much so. Nice to get out with someone to talk to.
Fed the fish in the pond. Fussed a horse in the WW1 display, and it didn’t bite or kick me either!
I got back about 1605hrs, BJ dropped me off at the house.
Made cuppa, and got laptop going to update this blog.
BT internet in and out again.
Later, did some microwave sausage sandwiches for me nosh.
By gum, I live the good life yer know… or not?
I actually made a friend today at Papplewick Pumping Station yer know… her was big, hairy, had four legs, big teeth, and wafted her tail in my direction…
