…seeing my first osprey of the year fishing in the bay.
…completing my tick list. Well, except for posting my re-supply parcels.
…decanting lotions and potions into tiny bottles in readiness for packing a rucksack.
…solving a little boot/gaiter issue, with a little help from A Very Clever Person.
The lacing on my boots goes through a loop centre bottom. This means that when I’m wearing my gaiters which hook onto the laces, it’s a little crooked at the bottom, putting stress onto the laces. I don’t want them to snap as I wade my way across Scotland, so I needed a plan.
“Mini split-ring,” he said.
“Wa?” I said.
“You need a mini split-ring on the bottom loop that you can hook the gaiter to,” he said.
“Genius,” I said, “I’ve got a pair of those!”
I have yet to try this out, but it looks convincing so far. (And yes, I am aware there are no insoles in my boots, they’re in my shoes at the moment!)
…the little treasures going back to school tomorrow.
