Monday Morning Blog Club 16/10/2017
Good morning people and fellow bloggers!
How does this Monday morning find you? Bright eyed and bushy tailed? Or bleary-eyed and wondering where the weekend went?
I’m sat here trying to get organised (on the blog) as our winter walks have started again, and today is the first one! Yesterday I headed out to take some photos but forgot to check I’d replaced the SD card
Yesterday I headed out to take some photos but forgot to check I’d put the SD card back in my camera. What a wally! Anyway, that means the camera is ready to go today as I was not making that mistake again quite so soon… It is inevitable that I will make that mistake again, just not today.
I’ve done something to my lower back and I know just when I did it. Last night, every time I turned over I woke up with a twinge in my lower back.
Buddy, our dog with the hip problem, cannot get into the back of the car on his own, he has to be lifted. All 25kg of him. Does he help? Not at all! He’s a big furry lump, that tries to lick me as I’m lifting him.
Usually, I am very careful how I pick him up, but yesterday when I had to get him in the car fast as another male dog was hanging around and squaring up to Buddy.
So I swooped down, picked him up and heaved him into the back of the car as fast as I could. I didn’t feel anything untoward at the time, but it must have been then that whatever happened happened. I am hoping that the walk will loosen it again.
Our First Walk Of The Winter
I’ve been and now I’m back! It was good to be out walking again. It was like a summers day, so hot we decided not to take the dogs. Even though it’s been five months since our last ‘winter walk’ the dogs knew as soon as I pulled on my walking trousers and boots.
They got so excited it wasn’t easy leaving them, but once the temperatures have dropped they will be joining us again. At the moment they flake out when I take them up the hills and we don’t walk that far, but they didn’t seem to understand that when I explained that.
I’m not sure how far we walked as I forgot to start my tracker, but if Derek (walk leader) says it was an estimated 6km, it wasn’t, it was more.
It was also nice seeing everyone again. The summers here are long and busy, a total contrast to winter, so today everyone was relaxed and happy knowing that there are plenty of winter walks ahead!
I just have to sort through the photos I took, something I also love about the walks.
So what have you been up to recently? Have you any plans for the week ahead?
Now on the link-up…
