Snowballed at 06:39
I want to make it clear I am not talking about cocktails in the wee early hours of the morning! No I am referring to balls of ice and snow being thrown!
There I was all cosy and asleep when … thud, thwack … I was rudely awakened by a large vehicle hurling a sort of snowball at my bedroom window – I only know what happened because last year one of the buses did it to the lounge window during the day. So there I was awake and could I get back to sleep? no!
The snow had doubled in depth overnight and it took a while for it to start clearing. The first bus form Kirrie had obviously hit delays since it was almost 40 minutes late when it returned for it’s second run to Dundee.
I couldn’t get on majorly fast this morning because I was expecting the delivery of dog food and last time they came I had to answer the door in a state of undress so I wasn’t repeating the experience. It was the same lovely couple and she had biscuits to treat the boys.
We did eventually get organised and out for our walk – which was very enjoyable with both boys behaving. Just before I set off though I had a phone call from the bank about my complaint – which they still have not resolved. I will keep the details private just now because it will be getting referred to the Ombudsman but suffice to say I think P from my bank is now under no illusion that I am not tolerant of repeated incompetence!
After the dogs got settled back in I went for a wee walk with the camera; a chap stopped and asked me for directions and as he drove off I got snowballed again – this time by the hedge I was walking beside! I walked up through the cemetery and onto the hill. The newer part of the cemetery had had the paths cleared but the older part hadn’t and it was quite testing walking.
So from Mad March Hares to giant snowballs it has been quite a day – the snow was well melted by teatime but of course if it snows again overnight it could become my personal Ground Hog Day!
