Just a Quickie

Is just what I've been having each morning this week. No, naughty, not that kind, though Mr T wouldn't be averse!

Just a quick walk before breakfast is what I have been doing. And, what a difference it makes to my day. I am spoiled in that I get a cup of tea brought to me each morning, I drink that and take my pills (yep, still the back ones) then, get dressed in the first things I find and troll out the door for my morning perambulation.

Luckily, I have a choice of going up the hill, or down the drive to the gate. No, I'm not a rich landowner, but rather I work for one. And, each morning I am greeted by nature! The other morning was frost and sunshine, and a woodpecker morse-coding on the weather-vane; Tuesday morning was a red squirrel running circles around the trunk of a tree.

Then, this morning, at the un-heard of hour for me of 7 am, I caught sight of the white powder-puff bottoms of four roe deer I had disturbed, who loped quietly off up the hill.

Sorry, I have no pictures, as I keep getting caught unawares. I think I'll have to set something up on purpose.

That sounds like a nice routine to be in! I remember the good old days where I used to get a cuppa in bed every day, what went wrong?!

Awe bless, shabby, just Ask, I bet Mr shabby chic would oblige!
Yep, soon, dusty - I can't wait. Luckily all deep ruts have now been filled in, so no candid shots of me falling over in them!
