Hope it helps to make my post a bit more interesting.
Picked this jigsaw up yesterday at the fun day, Ziggy enjoys her puzzles bit most of what we have here is more the twins age group or the one piece ones that she is to old for. So she had it out for a while before she went home. Oh boy somebody has pushed her terrible two switch...
Wandering round the back road down to the woods again. The pylon caught my eye as it glinted in the sun.
We had headed down the fishery but a lot of the land at the back of it is owned by a shooting club and there was a lot of shooters going down with their dogs and guns so we decided to go down the back road instead.A lot of harvesting going on everywhere round here this week.
Another walk with the dog. Just as well there are lots of places to walk round here.
We had something to drop off in Kilwinning so decided as we were nearly there we would go to Eglington Park for a walk with the dog. Have had a fair amount of rain here lately so we both put our wellies on, save worrying about the mud. Well I decided to walk through the ford that was not much deeper than about 4 inches to test if the wellies were waterproof. Well me being me slipped on the bottom and fell flat on my back. The rucksack and my waterproof jacket saved my top half but I was sodden through to me knickers. Must have damaged my phone as it is no more. Yes I have tried a hard reboot and everything else I have googled to try and sorted it. It did come back on but the screen no longer does anything when you touch it, and now it won't even turn on. Luckily I had not taken out a contract on a new phone but had changed to sim only last month as we did not need new phones. Gonna have to find a new phone now.
A walk through the woods with the dog. Followed the path all the way to Failford but from there you need to walk on the main road to access either the pub or the rest of the river walk. The main road has no pavement and the cars are doing 60mph so not something I would walk with the dog as traffic scares her.
Hubby sat in the middle of the river with the dog - I stayed on dry ground.
Had seen a bike ride offered by the Travel Hub in Ayr again. But this time it was to try out an electric bike. The Hub bought these a few years ago but the council will not give them the insurance for them to be hired out to the public, only allowing them to use them for supervised rides like this one.
They chose a route that involved one steep hill at the start and then some inclines throughout. I have cycled this route in the past but nice to see it is now all tarmaced rather than parts of it being pot holed and stoney. I have never managed in the past to cycle the uphill bit and always ended up getting off and pushing my bike up. But with the electric bike drop it down a gear, up the electric level a few notches and no problem at all. Have to say it makes cycling a doddle. I did not use the electric option all the time but the bike is slightly heavier than a normal one. Days like this I am glad I have good waterproofs, but was nice time we finished.
There was suppose to be six of us joining the two ride leaders with the ride but there was only two of us that turned up.
