Holiday post #2


I was woken by the sound of the ducks looking for their breakfast right outside the bedroom window at about 8am. (The ducks are wild that wander wherever they please). When the other birdlife started their morning chorus in earnest, I dragged myself out of bed and had a leisurely breakfast while reading the paper and some info on the local attractions. So nice to be able to lie in bed and then to read at the table and not be told off for taking up too much room!

At 11am I headed into town to return the DVD and check out the tourist bureau and the changes to the main street shops. It was a fair bit windier than Monday and as a result a fair bit colder. I went searching for shops that sell firewood but almost everyone had sold out. Apparently they're all getting some more on Wednesday. (I hope so for Mina's sake!)

After wandering down one side of the main street, I found the tourist bureau and asked about the internet access and the local scrapbooking shop. By this time it was after 1pm so I wandered back up the other side of the street, stopping to check out "The Scrappy Cow" (tiny little shop with hardly anything in it ... good thing I bought my own supplies!) before heading back to the house to watch the other DVDs and have some lunch.

I watched "The Terminal" (ok) and "Bride and Prejudice" (quite good) and tried to watch "The Devil Wears Prada" but it kept freezing and skipping so I gave up and had a nanna nap instead. Two hours later (!) I woke up and had some dinner then watched TV before heading to bed at 11pm again.

This is the life!!
