The one where the ears are flapping and the tongue is out and flapping with the ears?
That happy dog face where its eyes are screwed up against the fast moving air and the tail is wagging madly.
Yeah, we've all seen that look.
That was my dear husband on Saturday afternoon. He was that dog.
I on the other hand looked and felt like this.....
Let me start from the beginning.
I was working on saturday and we'd agreed that the boys would meet afterwards and we'd go for a walk up on the hills.
Only the weather was a little wild.
Our picnic lunch was consumed within the safety of the car as we watched the trees bending in the wind. Once finished - we piled on the walking gear. Shall I list what I was wearing?
Thermal leggings, thick fleece socks, trousers, long sleeved thermal shirt, short sleeved shirt, thin single layer jersey, thick walking fleece. On top were my lined waterproof leggings and waterproof jacket. Knitted scarf (wrapped tightly) polar fleece hood with extra wind resistant face shield and fleece hat. This level of clothing kept the wind out but I could still feel the chill factor and any exposed skin felt really...well... exposed!
Himself was also wrapped up warmly but he seemed to relish the conditions and at one point took off his coat and hat pronouncing himself warm!
The views were good. When I could build up the courage, I took a few photos. The buffeting of the wind made it a little tricky and at one point, when the wind was behind us I was shunted forward suddenly and Eldest had to scruff me to stop me falling over! Oh the indignity....
They are HUGE, the dark section is the start of the second tunnel.
Eldest striding off into the distance, the light marks in the sky are snow showers
More snow showers on the horizon
The problem with working on a saturday - the already brief weekend seems even more abrupt.
Hope you had a good weekend - what did you get up to?
Hope you did something you loved which made you happy :)
