Was waiting for a delivery, a late Christmas present from a friend. Was due in the afternoon so we decided to go out for a walk in the morning. Decided to head to Troon as not been there for a while. Did a chilly mile along the beach then back to the car and went and did another mile along the cycle path. Home for the delivery. The sunset was lovely here tonight watching it changed colour.
|nothing to line it up with.|
We went into town, I went and visited a friend and hubby went to friends house to pick up the few bits and pieces of ours that was still in friends house as he is moving up north to live with his mum.
Nipped into town after tea to pick up the few bits we had left in friends stairway before somebody else snaffled them. Did a walk along the river and treated ourselves to a mince pie supper as after 8pm the chip shop does suppers for the price of singles, so had a treat and change out of a fiver.
The name of this Indian restaurant always makes me wonder from where the name comes from.
|the name makes me chuckle|
Went and helped an elderly friend who was having trouble setting up a new phone. Then went for a walk.

Spent quite a bit of the morning doing housework. Not sure how we get so messy with just two adults in the house. Stuck prime music on the tv while I was working away.
The lyrics were about three songs behind, just as well I did not want it for karaoke.
A walk round the park later in the after noon.
|Some Susan Boyle to work to.|
Had a GP appointment this morning to discuss a few things and run a few ideas past her. Hubby had to wait in as friend was down with his mum for a meeting and we had his prescription he needed to pick up.
Then parked the car a mile away from the shops and walked into town to potter round the shops, first time I have had time to potter by myself in a long time. Spent less than £3. Then walked back to the car, all added to my mileage for the week.
Popped into Morrison's as had run out of dog food. Spotted some Soya ice cream while I was in there. Name brand soya ice cream normally costs about £3.50 for a 500ml tub, this stuff is only 80p and it is lovely.
|very reasonably prices dairy free ice cream|
Got a phone call yesterday afternoon to say the car would be with us mid morning today. Not sure what time their morning starts but they were here at 5 past 8 this morning. Luckily I was up, have not been many mornings in the last few months as just got lazy and out of any any routine with not needing to get up in a morning.
So transferred everything from the courtesy car back into ours, gave their car a quick hoover and a wipe round with some baby wipes, to move a few dog paw prints off the door inside the car, we had put the dog cover on the back seats of the car anyway so the seats were still clean, and took it back to them.
Our car has been sitting for weeks so wanted to take it for a good run to make sure the battery was well charged.
Took a run down to Ardeer beach, home to the only 'official' naturist beach on the south west Scottish mainland, in the warmer weather than today. We found a "matching " pair of left footed yellow wellies and a fisherman's outfit, sadly not both at the same area of the beach.
Went down to watch the kids while DD1 took Bob to gymnastics.
Minky loves his Lego and today's chosen game was build with Lego bricks. He did much better than I did. I much prefer Spuds choice of games, usually come in a box and I can manage them.
In to do the cheap shopping, pick up hubby's prescription from the chemist and walk the dog. We did 2.3 miles as dog sniffs along at a rate of approx 1.5 miles an hour.
You can read my post here about the Food membership club which is where I get what I call my cheap shopping.
|not a bad haul for £3.50, also got bread and vegetables as well.|
