The final day of squares so I thought I’d finish with some sunshine, and a short circular walk. Whilst most of my walks these days are about getting me outdoors for an hour or two, and also about being kind to myself, occasionally I have an errand to run. Walking to get milk is a surprise new one, and has brought unexpected joy.

The Milk Stop

A self vending milk machine has appeared round the corner from me, and once a week I pop along to help myself to local milk. That’s my milk filling up in the centre of the square. Robert would have loved this; supporting a local farmer and returning to bottled milk.

Thank you to everyone who has joined me on a walk this month. It really isn’t easy living with the trauma of what happened in April nor is it easy to live well in a world that has irrevocably changed. Specially now most people are moving on with their lives. That is normal though and I wouldn’t expect or want them to do anything else. However it is tough as my grief and my love for Robert surrounds me 24/7. So the fact so many of you have joined me this month has meant everything. I am looking forward to seeing your final squares throughout the day, and hope you have time later for a proper catch up as I have a #WalkingSquares gallery planned.

Do stay in touch, do keep walking, and if you can, do buy local!

  1. Becky, I would love to pick your brains with a few questions about photo challenges. Could you let me know if you have the time/inclination to answer? If not, I fully understand. Thanks

    1. Hi happy to help. Probably best to start with an email. Do you have mine, if not message me via my contact page and we can go from there


      1. Spotted it! Was under books most of yesterday and off to counselling this morning, but plan to reply this afternoon 🙂


  2. That’s so cool! We have a milk place like that but it’s about 40 kms away so don’t stop often. It just feels so much more environmentally friendly and sustainable when it comes from a farm near at hand.

  3. Oh, Becky, I do hope Squares has provided you with comfort and distraction. It has helped me and for that I thank you 💜 (And about the milk vending machine – how delightful – just like a cold water vending machine.)
