Today was our first day of freedom from our recent lockdown.
We had booked a viewing for a property we liked and drove up to Ramsey after lunch. We had decided to do our shopping in the Co-Op store before driving on to look at the bungalow.
The Co-Op car park was full so we had to park down on the quayside. The moment I stepped out of the car a passing seagull decided to release a full load from its undercarriage. I was covered in the revolting white stuff.
Moaning (me) all the way, we walked to the supermarket where I grabbed a handful of paper towels and tried to scrub away the offending white stains from my jacket, scarf, trousers and boots, much to the amusement of the other customers. One kind lady suggested that being pooped on by a seagull is good luck. Not too sure about that one!
We bought the fruit and veg that we needed then returned to the car to pack the shopping into the boot.
As we still had half an hour to kill I suggested that we visit the coffee shop on the corner. I didn't really need a coffee but I wanted to use their loos to try to wash away the stains which were starting to dry into my clothes. I was mostly successful but I had to put everything into the washing machine once we were back home.
Unfortunately, although the house we saw was very nice, we found out afterwards when searching the online planning applications that the house next door had recently applied to build a ginormous extension which would have looked right down into our windows. Perhaps the four white vans and three cars parked outside should have given us a clue!
Oh well, something else will turn up.
