|“Non Stop Zombie Days!!!”|
This morning [above image] – around 7.45am – on the beach front – the weather looked well … not very inviting shall we say! Grey, and damp combined with that drizzle rain that doesn’t even know if it is even wet!
You know … chances are if you start to walk, talk and move and sleep like a zombie – as they say on The Walking Dead – you are probably a zombie! Both Suze and l feel like we are slowly turning into zombies and our zombification modes are constantly in the ON cycle! But hey it is what it is until it isn’t and we can relax – the secret is to try to not give in to the tiredness!
…… and I am seriously starting to get very tired, and of all the moves we have worked on as a couple in the years we have been together, as there were quite a few before we settled here in 2016 – l have to say this has been the most knackering! It’s tiring because of a lot of factors but mostly because of the garden – you know it’s a big garden but you get to really understand the size of its layout when you are breaking it down.
This is the first proper walk l have managed to take since the last Musing on the 24th June just under two weeks ago and the first walk Suze and l have taken together for well over five weeks. For two weeks l have been working in the garden solidly and l haven’t even worn my FitBit – l just couldn’t be bothered and was fearful that it might snag on something and get broken!
Currently as l type the day outside [11.40am] is breezy, slightly cloudy and sunny, but the warmth of the actual humidity is very high. Admittedly the day started to sun up whilst Suze and l were on our beach walk and it made for some cracking shots which l have displayed here.
There is just something wonderfully mesmerising about not just water or the sand, but the sea and the beach when the sun is glistening on the incoming tide and the gentle splashing of the waves on both the sands and the pebbles combined – whilst it doesn’t magically wave a magic wand over all of your aches and pains, it does calm your mind somewhat.
It wasn’t a long walk, neither of us have the energy or the time for a long long walk, there is plenty of time for those soon enough – it was just a walk to remind ourselves we are alive and that we are getting there albeit slowly.
It doesn’t help when Murphy keeps sticking the oar in of course. That was performed yesterday with some glee when our removal agents suddenly declared they couldn’t move us on the promised day [they set] and they wanted to shift it ten days later from the 17th to the 27th!! No, that just will not do – we need the house to be empty by the 21st so we can crack on with the last requirements of the house.
I really wanted to lose my rag with them and rage .. but after l typed out my email l suddenly thought ‘Fuck it!’, deleted that email and just sent them ‘Fine it is what it is!’ I am too polite, l am getting very tired of companies moaning about things in recent weeks like the lockdown and loss of business and blah blah, but they are the first to use the shitstorm to their advantage.
Life is too short to write long FU messages even if you are in the right – but l have found since the lockdown l have very little time for those who waste my own and l now run on a much shorter fuse than normal and have no tolerance for even more fuckwittery from people! I am in correspndence with a smaller family run firm, maybe they will appreciate the business more.
On the good side however, Suze’s brother and his son came along this morning and collected a load of stuff – potato plants, bags of soil, the broken down large raised beds and the shelving units so they have now gone which is excellent news and something else cleared from the garden.
Yesterday Sam took the Garden chest we had outback – we wouldn’t be able to have it properly at either of our new rentals because of the space it requires and so it was easier just to let Sam have it and Suze will get a more streamlined and slimmer unit for her garden.
Today l have to work directly with the compost bins and sort out the worm farm ready for transport this week once l have the new units set up. It’s going to be really busy between now and the time the house becomes totally empty l feel – seriously busy, serious tiring and l think even more so seriously zombifying!
Oh well – when it’s done – it’s done, right?
Anyway, thanks for reading – catch you later
