I needed to go to town to get some more hay. We are getting through it very quickly this time of year. One day when the grass grows, we can stop but until then everyone just eats and eats and eats……
It was a lovely day in town and the place was empty – could be the threat of Coronavirus (6 people so far with it) or the norm. Floss and I went in our usual animal-mucking-out clothes looking fairly filthy with the theory that no one would come near us as we probably smelled of horses! We were given a wide berth which was good. Mission achieved.
We did, however, pop into Jamieson’s of Shetland to see if my field of sheeple needed refreshing. There is a cruise ship in tomorrow.
Their lovely wall of colour. I could almost knit. Almost – actually let’s be honest, that’s never going to happen.
Beautiful Fair Isle sweaters and cardigans.
Their rugs are lovely too.
Then off to “the chocolate shop” (Mirrie Dancers) – where displayed was an amazing chocolate Viking longship in the window left over from Up Helly Aa.
We had lunch in our usual spot looking at a pretty good view.
Lerwick in winter is very atmospheric – it was just about to pour with rain.
And lastly on our list, we went to Tesco to be greeted with empty shelves though the staff were absolutely trying their very best and stocking up the loo roll as fast as it left the shelves. We stocked up on gin, tonic, lemon – really the essentials!
