Photos A Day Late - Again

Yes, here are the FridayPhotos ... a day later again.  Sorry

Yesterday I actually did do a short drive (yes, I know I was a naughty girl), to wish Christine a Happy Birthday and to have a walk with her.  We did keep our distance, and met there, so didn't feel too bad about breaking the rules.  I did wonder if I would be able to go though when I left the house as my brakes on my car had sealed "on".  So had problems with noise etc, so went to my garage who said that it just showed my drive had a slight slope (which it does) and I hadn't driven for some time ... yes, over 2 months.  So all they said was I had to drive to get the brake pads smooth again, but that they were perfectly safe!

So as we met early afternoon for our walk I thought I would wait to post the photos.  Then we ended up walking further as there was a new WWI memorial to see (see at end of photos) so ended up getting back a bit later than I planned, so didn't go upstaires to switch on my pc.

So here are my photos around Stover ... a bit poignant as Christine & I had been there a few times with Jiffy.

The Birthday Girl -









This is the new memorial to commemorate the Canadian Lumberjacks who were stationed here during WWI.  It was a longer walk than we had planned, but the statues and the memorial were well worth the walk -

The story on Devon Live can be seen here - The story of the Canadian ‘Sawdust Fusiliers’ who cut down Stover's trees during World War One

This morning I did another 2 1/2 mile walk on my way to buy some more milk.  I am trying to be positive and walk a bit more each day.  I am also using my inhaler on a regular basis to try to get this tiredness back under control.  Every day (except yesterday) I have ended up sleeping for about an hour in the afternoon.  So far, so good ... well except for the blister I rubbed on my heal, despite the fact the shoes are not old and they are comfortable.

Today I actually hung washing on the line, as it is very bright, so thought it would be nice to get the bedding outside.

Now, I am a couple of days behind, and have tomorrow to do as well, so here are the DailyMeme questions -

25. What’s the most recent show you’ve binge watched?
LOL - I have been re-watching Hercules, The Incredible Journeys

26. What conclusions did you make about money as a child?
You have to save to get what you want. As Mum & Dad would say "Money doesn't grow on trees!"

27. What would you like to have less of in your work right now?
PPE. I am lucky in that I only need to wear basic PPE, but it is still very hot to wear. I also find it frustrating that in the past few years the NHS has worked hard at cutting back on landfill, but with Covid there has been such an increase for obvious reasons.

28. What did you love to do as a child?
Jigsaw puzzles ... and I still do!

Well, that's me up to date, and it must be getting close to organising lunchtime.

Hope you all have a good weekend, catch you next week.
