9th February 2018 (Friday) 09.00 .... oh, my word.... it’s overcast and cauld, and does not look like being a ‘good drying day’. There’s a good breeze, ..... but, no sunshine so far. The sky should clear soon; because I have the washing
|West Shore, Pittenweem, from the old pier.|
Apart from building activities, at different houses throughout the village, all is quiet; it’s the kind of morning that you get at this time of year.... dour and cold. That said, snowdrops are adding a touch of life to the garden.... and the crocuses are, tentatively, contemplating bursting into little splashes of colour. Yes Spring isn’t far away. I still feel cauld!
20.00 A, nigh on, perfect day for the boy, is
coming to an end. I am one happy,
contented .... and tired bunny tonight.
I did not deviate from ‘the plan’
at all today: that is really unusual! I
wonder if I’m coming down with a cold, or something? The washing dried, it has been a good ‘drying
day’; in fact the three shirts that I
bought at the FMA have been washed, and they dried too, and will be ironed tonight: well maybe not tonight.... the weather
forecast for tomorrow morning isn’t bonnie, which could be a good time for
ironing! It, the weather, should
brighten up by lunch time.

I enjoyed pottering around the West Shore end of Pittenweem after the buying the shirts,.... where I met, and had a blether with Alistair (Reekie), ... who was working at
one of the West Shore
houses. Alistair and Liza’s son Scott,
is a professional footballer with Dundee United FC.

The Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony has figured on the News all day; what I’ve seen looked spectacular. I like the ski events .... the slaloms, and big jumps. I’m not that keen on the modern mogul and snowboarding stuff..... too gimmicky ...and bad for the knees I imagine.
No ‘plan’ for tomorrow: I’m trying to shake off this cough, so perhaps a day ‘in’ wouldn’t be a bad plan. In fact ..... I’m going to have a ‘Janice Toddie’ tonight; that will sort it, the cough, out. Apart from the cough I’m feeling really lively. Must go... slight flap on.... got a toddie to make.
