One of the joys of living where we live is the lack of noise, however just as I sat down to start typing this blog, I got the joy of hearing my neighbour playing one of his piano’s. It is a lovely thing to hear. Unfortunately now our weekends are very much to the sound of gunfire as hunting season has started, and dog walks on the weekend have got a bit more interesting – ie. We have to go somewhere safe. Pat does occasionally meet hunters on his morning walks but generally things are ok. During the week, we are more likely to come across people hunting for mushrooms rather than the deer or boar, but on the weekend!
Our living room is progressing and we finally have the central bookcase up and the tv in place (and working). I’ve been madly painting the rest of the bookcases so that they can be also be put in place and attached to the wall. All in all, I’m very happy with the way things are progressing. We have had another cool but gloriously sunny day today and it does feel a bit of a shame to be stuck inside doing the painting, but these things need to be done. I really am at the stage that I would like this to be finished so that we can get back to normal living.
Sometimes it is easy to get stuck in a rut, so Pat and I decided that starting this October we are trying to do a different mid-day walk every day with the dog. We did forget for the first few days, but we did at least do different walks for most of the past 7 days, now we have to start thinking about new walks and we don’t want to travel to far from home so it will make us look at the area nearby in a new way (but avoiding the hunters).
For now I wish you all à bientôt and remember Pat’s blog next week – http://patblog.patbell.co.uk
