Another nice warm day. Cooler than yesterday, but still quite warm.
Mid 20s today and a scorcher of a day for a walk.
So I went to the local McDonalds to pick up a coffee and light breakfast and they were doing takeaway only, and only providing seating for delivery partners, like Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
My normal local cafe has turned into a KFC-like chicken shop and now opens at 10am instead of the usual 6am. Disappointed, but I can understand why.
At McDs, I placed my order just as the manager was asking a customer to leave. As he was, I noticed he had a bottle in his hand. Originally I thought it was a Maker’s Mark bottle, but actually looked more like a Courvoisier 1L bottle, which retails for around £35-£40.
This guy was nearing the end of the bottle when I arrived. Had he finished an entire 1L, 40% ABV bottle of Cognac at 6am in the morning? No wonder the boss asked him to leave. The boss was then on the phone, not sure who to, though. I waited for my breakfast outside, monitoring the display screen.
I’ve decided to put the McDs app on my phone in case that helps for the next time I’m ordering.
After my breakfast, I went to Tesco for the weekly shop.
I parked up and then noticed nearby (like three spaces away) was another Yaris. It was a black Yaris Hybrid, like mine, with a 68 plate (mine is a 67 plate). I thought “that’s ironic”, and went to do my shopping.
Came back after shopping, loaded up my boot, then sat in the car and tried to get phone paired with my car’s Bluetooth so I can listen to my Spotify music on the journey back.
Just then I felt my car’s back shaking. Looked in the rear view mirror and found someone trying to get into the boot. I’d already central locked the car, which means the boot won’t open. So I opened the window and said “Wrong Car”. The guy realised immediately what had happened, and so did I. He’s the driver of the _other_ black Yaris Hybrid, parked but three spaces away!
A much brighter, sunnier day today. Great for a walk. Low 20s degC.
A cloudy day with ominous clouds in the sky. Going to take my chances and head out for a walk….
A cloudy day, but still warm enough to do a walk, without any unwanted attention from flies.
A warm day, not too hot, and not swarmed by flying ants today. A nice, relaxing walk.
Another nice hot day. Went out to walk, and found all the flying ants had come out and were swarming literally everywhere. I ended up with them landing in my hair and on my neck. Good thing I wasn’t running, there’d be a big chance I ended up with some of them in my mouth.
With the pubs and restaurants now open, we decided to head out for some food, and went to our local Harvester. We booked a table in advance. Got a Quorn BBQ stack.
Flipped around today, no workout and just walking today.
Went a different route to see how long it would be and it turns out not too much longer than my shorter route, but with more hill work.
