Day 135 – Saturday

The weather has gone absolutely nuts ahead of the first of a series of cold fronts expected this week. A warm gale has been blowing since I scraped myself out of bed this morning and it seemed perfect for drying the clothes and the beagle, both of which got thoroughly washed today. However, while the beagle has a low centre of gravity and is sturdy enough to withstand all but the double figures of the Beaufort Scale, the washing led me a merry dance all over the garden before I finally gave in and chucked in the tumble dryer so it could annoy Eskom instead of me.

After the repeated highlights of last weekend, today has all felt a bit deflating, especially given the promise of a damp, grey, school-filled week ahead of us. On the plus side, I’ve finished the GooseChase game ready for tomorrow. It’s been a lot of work, but I’m hopeful that it will be a lot of fun too. And on another positive, it seems like my Garmin Connect is actually working again, meaning that I can get some extra points for all the hard work I’ve been putting in to exercising.

I think I’m going to light the fire, grab a beer and think about Uber Eats for dinner tonight.

Because if one can find enough silver linings, one can surely fill in the whole of the dark clouds, right?
