Good morning, everyone. I'm very bleary eyed this morning after a long time awake in the middle of the night followed by a sleep with a most vivid dream about getting on a bus in the wrong direction and having absolutely no idea where I was - it stayed off being a London black bus (I know - it was a dream) but quickly morphed into somewhere unknown. Getting lost is one of my scary things - urgh!
Anyway - I'm awake now and downstairs, light is dawning and Tuesday has begun.
wind and waterproof jacket (and a fold up mac to go over if necessary) - ✓
thermal or woollen underwear - to get
warm socks - to get
warm, waterproof boots - on order
shoes with a non-slip sole (after sorting out my shoes, I already have several pairs) - ✓
warm hat - to get - I have warm hats but I want a Scandi one with ear flaps, just because . . .
scarf - ✓
gloves or mittens - ✓
ice grips (I presume they mean crampons - to get
walking sticks, if needed - ✓
sunglasses - ✓
lightweight, slip on shoes for indoor use - ✓
backpack (it says backpack, not rucksack) and I am assuming it is got things like sunglasses, sticks, camera, passport, money (if needed), slip on shoes, etc, etc, etc. Things we need to take on the excursions, in fact - ✓
camera and tripod - to get
spare batteries, chargers, etc - already have or to get
binoculars - must look. I have some, somewhere. Otherwise, I will see if I can borrow some.
passport - ✓
thermals, ice grips/crampons (good old Amazon has loads)
thermals; Scandi hat; camera, tripod and accessories;
And I need to find my binoculars.
And tonight is hallowe'en so I must make and print my sign to say no trick or treats but have a great evening. I don't expect to have potential callers but there are children down the cul-de-sac again so may as well. I'm not stingy, I just don't like the principle of it, that's all - that's a personal feeling, not a criticism of anyone else in any way whatsoever
To be fair, I've only been egged once (or, rather, my car has) and I know exactly who that was! They did not get away with it! Such a shame I knew where they lived, wasn't it? < evil smile >
Well, I seem to have waffled on for a long time about not a lot and I need to shower, wash my hair and get ready for Groove so I will love you and leave you with hopes for great Tuesday. All the best. xx
