I had run out of the extra nice mash (Rowen & Barbary Ready Mash Extra) that I’ve been giving to the ancient Icelandic horses as a treat during this vile weather so, checking it was in stock, Floss and I drove into town to get some more.
After loading up the Eggbox with a treats for all at the local animal feed store, we thought we would nip round Tesco’s to see if they had anything on offer. There is nothing better than a post-Christmas bargain
Due to the adverse weather, the boats have been sporadic these past few days and the shelves had a few gaps but it actually wasn’t too bad. I was expecting far worse. Sometimes there is nothing.
The Street, on the other hand, was empty and almost totally closed for business.
There were a few die-hards out but with almost every shop and cafe shut, it was quite bleak.
I tried to see if more sheep were needed, but there was no one at Jamieson’s (opening on the 8th).
Peering through the glass on the shop’s front door, I could make out they have a few sheep, I think, though it’s hard to tell.
So Floss and I, and a friend we met en route in Tesco, had a nice lunch and then made our way home in the now-stalwart Eggbox. OH held the fort at home all day. I expect he enjoyed the peace.
