I felt so ill when I got up today. Head cold has taken over my entire body which aches and is hot. I was tempted to go back to bed after a bath but instead decided to take advantage of a break in the rain and go for a walk with my lovely daughter, just home from Asia and Harvey. Plus dogs. It has certainly been raining a lot!
Puddles are so irresistible for a young boy.
Who ended up soaked.
Why are girls so gorgeous and boys so gruesome at times?
When I take Harvey to school, we pass the field of Alpacas.
Today we drove alongside the field on the way in to the forest so stopped to say hello. This one needs a haircut!
They seem so calm and docile.
On the way home we stopped off at the Hartley Dyke farm shop which is brilliant as it is only small but it has so much packed inside it. Lots of local produce and on a Saturday, lots of yummy things to sample.
Next to it is a relatively new fishmongers. It doesn’t look very enticing from the outside so although I regularly visit Hartley Dyke, I have never been inside here.
What a mistake. It was fantastic. A wide variety of produce and no nasty fishy smell. Served by incredibly smiley and happy people.
We will be going back here, that’s for sure.
Quick snack lunch of bread, cheese, ham, turkey and Crevettes from the fishmonger as we were all busy running errands this afternoon. I had eaten nothing all day so far but still wasn’t very hungry. I did have 2 slices of bread with some ham and turkey and 2 Crevettes which were lovely.
Plus loads of cherries. Love cherry season 🙂
While we were out walking, my package from Canada arrived. Thank you Laura and Bob 🙂
I do love a gadget and this one is available in the USA and Canada only. My friend Laura recommended it and kindly posted it on to me. With it, I can track all my activity and keep a record on-line. Love things like this 🙂
I think this will help motivate me as I am very target driven and will enjoy making my 10,000 steps a day. I will let you know how I get on.
I was thinking of my dear neighbours earlier today, as the rain lashed down. I was having an afternoon sleep to try and get rid of my headache, which did subside slightly, and the rain was so noisy it kept me awake. My neighbours are preparing parties and the thunder crashed and the rain was so heavy I really felt for them, as they were dashing about making final preparations. Veg Grower and Tree Planter are having a birthday party tonight, as is CJ who lives opposite. So we have 2 parties to attend tonight – excited !!! Our road will be rocking tonight. I suspect my head will be thumping tomorrow.
Zoe, am enjoying keeping up with your efforts. Never knew there was a fab fishmonger at Hartley Dyke. Put me in mind of the lovely Jason at the organic farm/butcher near Tenterden – perhaps you need to get some organic meat one day soon??
You are incorrigible 🙂 Do you want a photo of the lovely Jason then?
Zoe, I am just blown away that you got this package already. Especially since you know it was mailed on Wednesday!!! Bob will be happy too see you got your Tractivity. Thanks for making my day. I wasn’t online much this weekend, so I am just getting to read your blog now and saw this.
Please let me know how you like it.
I hope you are feeling better!!!
I really like it. I think I will want one of the sensors you can wear round your ankle when they start selling that. The I won’t have to keep swapping the insole from shoe to shoe throughout the day. Thank you for recommending it 🙂
From what I gather, you will only have to get the anklet and the sensor you have now that you can put into the lace holder you got, or the insole, will fit into the anklet. I haven’t seen any official pictures of it yet, but I do know it will be Velcro so it will be a one size fits all kind of thing. I will keep you updated for sure.
Bob really likes his too and is amazed he is walking between 6-10 miles a day just going from the carpentry shop to the movie set with the finished products.
P.S. And if you come up with any ideas, do let me know so I can pass them along or email Customer Service. They want the feedback.
Wow, go Bob! That is fantastic. I guess he is on his feet all day. I was pleasantly surprised with how far I walk as I feel as if I sit down all day but I obviously don’t 🙂
