The Sights You See!

The Sights You See!

After days of wall-to-wall sunshine, I awoke this morning to the Return of The Rain. Boo.


But, the flowers got a good water. Hurrah!

And, as I was driving into work this morning, bleary eyed and thinking about my holiday starting at the end of this week, I was startled by an unexpected sight! No, not more cows on the beach 😉 but something you certainly don’t see every day.

I saw a lady walking down the street, smartly dressed, and looking like she was on her way to work. Nothing odd about that, you say?



But, she was wearing one of these:


Seriously, she really was!

I can only assume that she had misplaced her brolly during the recent spell of dry weather!

Certainly not a sight I expected to see at 8am, but it made me laugh 😀

Have you seen any strange sights while out ‘n’ about recently?

  1. I’ve thought one of those would be good for rainy day running – but of course, you’d need a chin strap. And you know, beverages with a straw could be hooked on underneath. Maybe a sound system too. Then, of course, a solar panel on the top so you could charge your cell phone, and preferably have a few lights attached… for safety, of course. They will be fabulous and fashionable. I’m going to market them and make my fortune! 😀

    1. Ha ha, I’d buy one of those! Can I have a special order one with a net too to keep the midges from biting me? 🙂

      1. Yes!! Now, we just need to decide if we avoid bugs by hanging the mosquito net curtain around the hat, or if we need a spray / mister thing that will puff out sprays of midge repellent… oh, who I am kidding, we’ll add both!

      2. Ah ha! I like your thinking! The spray/mister could also have a fan attachment…..

  2. I want one of those! I didn’t see anything particularly weird lately, but last weekend, when I was standing at Threlkeld with a peanut butter sandwich awaiting a bunch of relay runners, someone actually asked me if we were doing the Bob Graham Round… I was very polite, but part of me REALLY wanted to say: “Nooooo, I just like standing here on a random crossroad at 2am with my lunch ready to go…”… 😉
