Not A Marathon

Today, after work, I decided that Tobias (dog) and I would walk as far as we could until Mr Pigalina finished work – time unknown.
I strapped on my walking shoes, donned my shorts, filled my water bottle, and we were off. It was pretty windy but we battled on, past the sheep fields, litter filled ditches and the scrap metal yard.
I reached the Green Island shops, which from Waldronville is quite a distance (Google map it!) and was feeling so proud of us. Then Mr Pigalina pulled up to give us a ride home. As I stopped my walking app I was surprised to discover we had only walked 3.5km which is less than the usual route! The straight line nature of the walk made it seem further than our usual loop.
At least we saw some different sights, such as this duck on the stream. One day we plan to walk the 13km to Mr Pigalina’s work…

No Day Like a Snow Day

When I peeked out of the curtains this morning and saw the snow I was ready for the day in less than 30 seconds. I love, love, love, snow on the beach and I had to go and see it. It is just such an odd juxtaposition.
The snow kept falling in enormous flakes but Mr Pigalina needed to head to his work to retrieve his laptop to carry on with a project. He headed in in my car, vowing to return shortly, and then decided to stay there.
I have been forced stay at home, by the fire, watching “Diana, Her True Story”.
