Week Notes #16: July 27, 2020
Back to work, back to the weird circumstances that we are currently calling normal.
Back to work. Well, back to sitting at home doing work. I liked being off, even though we didn't go too far, the break from routine was very welcome.
- Monday was quiet. I plugged through a day of work. In the evening I went to the golf course with the little dude. I bought a junior 7 iron for the kids to use. He had a go trying to hit balls, I had a go trying to hit balls. I actually got an honest to God birdie. Lovely tee shot with my £10 hybrid. While a group of people were sat watching I took my PW and popped it about 15 yards from the hole. Then I rolled an an absolute peach of a putt that arced beautifully into the middle of the hole.
- I was ready to turn pro there and then.
- Next tee I topped my tee shot. Tried again. Shanked it into the bushes. Tried again. Topped it. Tried again. Topped it. Tried again. Did a weird fat shot that floated about 90 yards.
- Golf, innit.
- To be fair the four topped shots were grouped beautifully. At least I am consistent.
- It was a slow week. I managed to get to the course for another couple of quick holes.
- I had the insurance OK a replacement for our smashed telly. I think I've got the replacement narrowed down to two. A Philips and a Hisense. The funky Ambilight vs a technically superior picture. We'll see.
- I took Friday off. We bought a parasol for the garden. It was hot. We got the paddling pool out. We had pizzas in the evening. A nice lazy day.
- We went to Delamere Forest on Saturday ... it was HEAVING. It wasn't our choice ... and we didn't want to go near the Gruffalo trail ... so we ended up on the Gruffalo trail. People everywhere. We got an ice cream and eventually found a quieter trail.
- I drank a very special Triple IPA by Polly's. I've drunk a lot of Polly's over the last few months. They are an excellent brewery ... but this TIPA was another level. 10% of gorgeousness.
- Most people are polite and still totally respect your space. Some people have a very low regard for other people.
- A much better time was had on Sunday when we went for a walk around Moel Arthur in North Wales. 4.5 miles with a steep start and a steep finish. A good workout for everyone, and a only a few people on it. Perfect. The views from there are sweeping Snowdonia, the Welsh coast, Liverpool and beyond.
