No cows

By golly it’s hot again after that storm last night! So what do I do? Go running in the midday sun. I had been out in the garden with Hector since 8am, playing in the sandpit and he didn’t show any signs of going to sleep so I thought: ‘today’s the day we go and see the cows’. Jogblog’s cows. So we put on lots of suncream, sunglasses and hats and packed some supplies and headed down to the canal. My co-pilot got a bit anxious when we didn’t turn off for our usual playground stop, but I reassured him that we would soon be enjoying the company of some beautiful furry creatures. ‘Where are the cows?’ he kept saying. Over the bridge we went, along the bumpy track, around the bend and there was no sign of the cows. We did, however, see a tractor with the biggest wheels I have ever seen, but no cows. We carried on a bit further, in the hope that they might be around the next corner, but no cows. I guess we are just too early.

We paused on some grass so H could eat his lunch and who should run by but another woman with a running buggy! She even had a red top on like me, sunglasses like mine and a lovely dog. Oh well, no dog for me šŸ˜¦ Her buggy must a new model because it was all bright colours and fancy bits, not like my third-hand faded green one. It was odd seeing someone so similar prancing along the canal.

Once we had got over our doppelganger shock and the disappointment of not seeing the cows, we carried on our way, pausing to watch two chaps kayaking along the water, Hector was really rather taken by their smooth gliding and synchronised arm movements. As we headed home he called out: ‘Hector’s tired’ and promptly nodded off. It’s the fresh air.

  1. Far too early for the cows. They’re usually due around mid-July but last year they were late and it was more like late August/early September.

  2. Yes, it was 16 August I first saw them again last year.

  3. Not faded green – racing green!

  4. Jogblog – I thought we might just be too early. We’ll head down there later on…camera in hand.

    HK – Yay!
