|Lamb - much cuter alive and not as Easter dinner|
Sketch 45 of 75
Like most females, I would imagine, I have a wide selection of hats - not flibberty gibbet, wholly decorative, flouncy ones the like of which you would see on the ladies who frequent horse racing events - I'm talking about functional knitted hats that keep your head warm. My current favourite is a stripy beany hat which my mum gave me.
About a month ago we were walking at our favourite place which entails a steep walk down from the car park through a maze of sand dunes to a beautiful golden sandy beach. We take a different route through the dunes, it would seem, each time we do the walk.
When I walk the dogs, I start off with several layers - hats, scarves, gloves, ear muffs, which get removed and shoved into my jacket pocket as the walk progresses and I warm up.
Anyway, on returning home this particular day, I discovered my hat was no longer in my pocket. It was gone, lost to the elements, hidden in the maze of sand dunes. It was only a hat; I had plenty of others but I still felt a little bereft because it was my favourite hat.

So, imagine my delight when last week, I was taking another route through the dunes when lo and behold, I spotted something stripy up ahead. There was my hat, wet through from a few weeks of being outdoors in all weathers but still intact nevertheless. I brought it home and lovingly washed it, ready to take its rightful place back on my head.
Then on Wednesday morning, I took the dogs on a walk to a different beach before going to the re-homing shelter. I had my hat on when we left the house, I got too warm on the way back so took my hat off but kept it in my hand conscious of it falling out of my pocket again. We got home. No hat. It was in my hand - how could I possibly lose it? I can only imagine it became an un-noticed casualty when attempting to untangle myself from the two extender leads (it is apparently impossible for our dogs to just walk in a straight line without criss-crossing in front and behind me when on extending leads).
Anyway, that's the exciting news from the far north this week!
Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. Happy Paint Party Friday also to those who participate and to those who just like to visit!
