Good morning. That's another weekend gone. I woke up this morning to find that it has rained overnight, rather heavily judging by the pools of water on my neighbours flat roof. Now perhaps the patches of brown grass will turn green.
I did two five mile walks over the weekend. I like to stop at a field gate and look for the three horses that live in the field. I often speak to the owner if she is there. She usually comes at about 5pm to top up their water, and bring extra feed. Today she wasn't there, I was too early. The horses spotted me, they were at the top end of the field and came galloping towards me. Possibly thinking I was the foodie person. They gathered around the water bath, the electric fencing prevented them from coming any closer so I zoomed in. Lovely horses, she looks after them well. I was ten minutes down the road near the industrial estate when a familiar car came by. The driver gave me a cheery wave. The foodie lady was on her way.
A litle job I did over the weekend. I am getting my car ready for a service this week, so I took everything out of it and got the dyson out for a good interior clean. This is not one of my favourite jobs. Any task that is loosely connected to housework is a no no in my book. I do it when I have to, not before.
I need to elevate my bottom when driving, can't stand sitting low down in a hole. Comes from sitting high up in a lorry cab I suppose. Good all round vision is important. How they sit in a low slung sports car I will never understand. I would feel very vulnerable with my arse dragging on the ground. High up and in control is my preferred seating in anything with wheels on.
Someone gave me one of those memory foam pillows a couple of years ago. They couldn't get on with it and I can understand why. It's as heavy and as hard as a rock. It would not suit me to rest my head on that.
I folded the end over and stuffed it into a pillow case and used it as a seat cushion in my car. It is the perfect shape, and with the folded bit at the back it forms a wedge shape which elevates my bottom nicely. The only problem was gradually it became stretched out to its normal pillow size, and I had to keep scrunching it up, which became a bit annoying.
Solution. Fold it over and stitch it down so it cannot unfold.
