Mondays are usually a bit of a chill-out day for me. Almost invariably following stressful weekends. Well, always following weekends of course, and generally weekends are kinda stressful. My weekends tend to be at least. Stressful that is. In one way or another.
So, Mondays are chill-out days. Try not to do a lot. Slob around basically. Stay indoors, drink loadsa coffee, and shun everyone. Phones too. Don’t like ’em at the best of times, and as for mobiles I can hardly use the bloody things anyway. Can never find anything on them and when I do I usually end up pressing the wrong button and have to start all over. Curse them. So Mondays all phones of whatever type are definitely taboo.
Computers usually figure in it somewhere as well. Messing around thereon. Which is a bit daft really cos its generally computers that have been the source of stress over the weekend. Either them, or people. Or people doing stupid things with computers.
But at least my computers tend to work ok. Well, most of the time.
Yesterday was somewhat different though cos had to wander into town to pay a coupla bills. Not my favourite task.
So there I am, in town, and naturally hook up with mate.
Him finishing work we have a little wander around.
Drab day. Grey skies. Drizzly (well, an occasional shower; but what the hell). Him in a drab mood. Me too. Maybe a little mooch around by the river will brighten us up. Possibly even a pic or two. But heart’s not really in it.
However… having plonked ourselves down on the river bank we find we seem to be squatting in a colony of these little characters…
Well, they certainly weren’t being drab. Positively lively in fact. Not one of them would stay still long enough for either of us to get an even half-way decent shot. Oh well.
And of course just to reinforce my inherent dislike of people (hmm… most people at least) there’s the inevitable litter floating around. A CD in the river…
and a fag packet in a tree wouldya believe!
On the positive side, the drabness of the day did seem to bring out the colours in the pics rather nicely. Odd.
