Travelling day! I wonder just how many times I have made this same journey?! Far too many and it doesn’t get any easier, in fact worse because now we have to change planes in Istanbul.

We packed for Cyprus and then took Ellie to Lou and Rhys’s. She started barking at Rhys because she could smell some of Roddy’s biscuits under the fridge! Lou got them out for her. I think she was being a little demanding! She doesn’t do that at home.

We then drove to Torins. A good thing it was the A1 we were travelling on and not the M1 as they had closed it down at Milton Keynes because of “something suspicious” and had the bomb  disposal there. I know some people had been sitting there  for 5 hours.

When we arrived at Torins we heard from David that we have another viewer tomorrow.

In the evening  we had our dinner at the Crown Hotel, the new Wetherspoons.  Back home and we had a drink or two and watched the ladies football. I prefer it to the mens, fewer egos on the pitch. England won 6-0

Apparently the turtle nest that I sponsored was a success and a lot of people went to see the release last night. There was  a clutch of 52, 1 live hatchling, 1 dead in shell, 11 eggs to nursery, 40 egg fragments, so 39 hatchlings made it safely to sea overnight.  Result! Just such a shame they couldn’t hold on a couple more days.

 

I went off to Demelza. Linda has gone on her cruise and Petro was at Uni. In the afternoon it was just Jack and I. It was the worst takings since I started working there. Three girls tried on wedding dresses and reserved them but no money yet that will end up in another days takings after I spent three hours with them!

For the turtle watchers in NC…..

🐢🐢🐢EXCAVATION AND RELEASE TONIGHT 17th September 🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢

Another nest hatched last night, so we will be conducting an excavation and release this evening. Hopefully there will still be some little hatchlings still in the egg chamber for us to release at sundown. If you’d like to join us please be at The Turtle Shack for 18:15, no need to book 🐢”

I’ll repeat if you have never seen this do go along and again thanks to Karsiyaka Turtle Watch for all the work they do. I am really hoping that my nest that I sponsored doesn’t hatch until I get there!  Having just written that, I received an email from Moyra, who is one of the volunteers at KTW, saying it is my nest tonight. Some fishermen contacted them as it was hatching. It is normally mentioned who has sponsored the nest. A slight breakdown in communication may be one of the reasons Moyra is no longer going to work with KTW after this season. Such a shame she has been a rock in the organisation, in my opinion.

We took Ellie to Goodnestone and walked the Serpentine Walk. Unfortunately the first field we crossed, before getting to the woods, Ellie caught a pheasant! I managed to get her to drop it and it wasn’t harmed but all the same it wasn’t too impressed as it flew off! Ellie was left with a mouth full of feathers!

There were a lot of fungi in the woods but we still dare not risk trying any as we don’t know enough.

We went and looked in the church, one of the rare churches that aren’t kept locked! We then went into the Fitz (Fitzwalter Arms) for a coffee. It has now changed hands and it seems the chef has taken it over from the previous couple. It’s still a dog friendly pub with dog biscuits on the mantlepiece and a water bowl inside the bar!

We spent the afternoon cleaning all the garden up, mowing the lawn and cleaning the car.

Mal took Ellie out whilst I went to collect a click and collect order from Westgate. I was at the shops by 9. I hate Saturday madness at the shops. I collected the order and also bought a top in Marks. Mal meanwhile had been on the phone to 3. Yes, I now have my new upgraded phone but it doesn’t work at home. So, the technical team would call him back because the first three guys hadn’t a clue what Mal was talking about. When we moved here 3 issued us (eventually) with a mobile network mast as we couldn’t use our mobiles, that’s what comes of living out in the sticks! So although I was keeping my same number, the sim card was smaller so the new one had to be fitted. The last resort was Mal hanging on the phone talking to people who didn’t even know what a mobile network mast was!!! Finally the last fella listened to Mals “PLEASE let me speak to someone on your technical team who understands your network!” He put him through to the technical team. He knew exactly what Mal was saying and added the code number on my new sim. Lo and behold my phone now works at home.  Why has that taken all day?! And Mal wonders why I have an aversion to anything technical.

We watched the Spurs game, what can I say?…… good defence Swansea!

Mal took Ellie for her walk whilst I waited in for the oil man to come. 

The tractors were muck spreading on the field behind us and it stank so we will have to walk Ellie in the opposite direction or she will be rolling in it!

We waited and waited for the oil man to come and then finally in the afternoon their depot phoned to say he had a leak in his pipe and so couldn’t continue with his round. Yes, a likely story on a Friday afternoon! What could we say? We did remind them it was already overdue. They are now going to come first thing Monday. So, the sun was still out so we took Ellie for a long walk around the orchards. They are still harvesting and need to harvest 100 tonnes a day!

At least Ellie enjoyed it, two long walks in one day but the whole of Preston stinks, I think they have been muck spreading everywhere. The joys of living in the country. I bet the guests at today’s wedding across the road are enjoying it too.

Thought for the Day – “In case you forgot to remind yourself this morning….your butt is perfect. Your smile lights up the room. Your mind is insanely cool. You are way more than enough. And you are doing an amazing job at life.”

My mobile is getting old and it appears some of my messages are not reaching me, so I ordered another which was being delivered today. With DPD they actually give you an hours slot. They let me know in the morning and as it wasn’t until the afternoon we decided to go to Minnis Bay with Ellie. I had glanced at ‘memories’ on Facebook and for a year ago it was Mal and I on the beach at Stone Bay in our shorts and T shirts . What a difference today. I hadn’t realised just how bitter the wind was until we got to the coast. Luckily I had a coat in the car and a hoodie on which I pulled the hood up. I was so cold my fingers went white. Well, I didn’t expect to be wearing gloves.

I had to laugh,the first chilly day and the bay inspector hasn’t bothered turning up! He’s a right jobsworth anyway!

My phone arrived right on time in the afternoon. I then received a day old message from Rhys. He was in Canterbury yesterday lunchtime, driving in the taxi and bus lane when two fellas tried to drag him out of his taxi, he managed to lock the doors and thankfully an off duty policeman came to his aid otherwise he said he would have ended up in hospital. For goodness sake, I worry about him enough when he is out in the middle of the night but this was the middle of the day in Canterbury!

When DPD delivered the phone we found two packages left at our gate! A good thing we noticed them or someone could have taken them. I wonder why the postman didn’t bother knocking. It can’t be our usual postman as he is excellent.
