Day 100 of COVID-19 lockdown… what have we learned so far? 🌍❤️🌈

Featured

💯days eh?! Which means I have written a blog every day for 92 days as I only started on what we recorded as our day 8. I see others saying we’re already up to 103/104 etc but this is when we calculated it at the time and rather than stress that my whole blog is worthless and rubbish the new me is choosing to keep going as is. It’s our day 100. Mine and Craigie’s and Calaidh’s and Bhruic’s and Freya’s….. forgive the poor English 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️😬 but you know what I mean.

If anyone had told you, 100 days ago, that our lives were going to change in a way we could never begin to imagine, we just wouldn’t have believed it. A world where we could stand right next to anyone and touch anyone (with reason obvs!) and we literally hugged people we didn’t even know. We didn’t have a care in the world when it came to that kind of stuff. Yeah we turned out noses up at folk not washing their hands after going to the loo etc but we screwed up our face and moved on. We survived.

Now we have an unseen killer. A virus that can spread among us through touch, can survive on surfaces and pass to others and we can’t see it. We have no idea where it’s lurking and worst of all, people can have it and not even know they are infected. It’s the stuff of horror movies!!

We watched every virus movie while we’ve been stuck home and the truth is actually terrifying. We watched these in the past thinking they were just that… far fetched thrillers. We had no idea.

So 100 days ago, we finally realised how serious this was and Craig stopped work and we stayed home to save lives, to help stop the transmission of COVID-19. We “sheltered in place” as they said in America. We only left the house for dog walks and food shopping for months.

It feels like a time for reflection…. what have we learned in this 100 days? Apart from the fact that the rainbow is a sign of hope 🌈❤️

We’ve learned that family and being together is everything. We’ve been given a special gift to spend time with each other but we’ve also been told that we can’t see other family members or friends that have been a part of our daily lives. We’ve seen a community spirit that was always there in Gateside but growing in a way we would never have imagined. That old war time share and share alike. I’ve bartered with rice and milk and sugar… there’s been a lot of sugar passing over fences. We’ve made the best of the lockdown life we’ve been given. Generations ago our grandparents etc were sent to war, we were told to stay home and watch tv, I mean how lucky are we?

The material things in life have become irrelevant. Even with all the money and possessions in the world you still had to stay home. Businesses are realising people can work from home without the world ending and it will reduce their overheads and the carbon footprint of their staff.

We have learned to appreciate the present. To live in the moment as everything else is too uncertain. Everyone is living on the same terms. 🌍

Personally we’ve learned to appreciate each other again and communicate clearly as we have had time to spend together. We can see what makes the other tick, what triggers and argument and we can stop it in its tracks with a laugh or a shrug of the shoulders saying here we go again. Through writing this I have expressed my daily feelings in a way that shows how erratic they are, how quick they are to flare up to anxious, fever pitch but most importantly how virtually none of it is Craig’s fault. He doesn’t have to second guess everything. He can just read it if he didn’t already know it. 🤣🤣🤣

I have learned to slow down, to watch the world move on through different eyes. To watch my handsome husband and smile realising he’s mine, to walk 3 Border Collies without them pulling on the lead, to value the endless movie nights, the takeaways and the connections with others. I hope that the world will be a better place as a result.

However, we have to remember that we have been untouched by this deadly virus. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. We are very lucky.

Worldwide stats

The UK have lost 44,131 souls to COVID-19 officially but there is evidence that the number of excess deaths for this year far exceeds that. Scotland stands at 2,488 people so far.

England is seeing a surge in new cases, particularly in London where the R rate is creeping above 1. For everyone one person infected at least one other person catches it. There seemed no doubt this would be the case as the amount of protests and large gatherings threw people together at a time when we were still meant to be 2m apart. It’s easy for me to sit here smugly and be happy that our lockdown isn’t as loose as England’s, that our government is being more strict.

Localised restrictions in Dumfries and Galloway now too
I’ve read today that Boris has urged people not to think of Saturday as Super Saturday as we need to still be careful and make sure that we protect each other by not spreading the virus. Yet apparently pubs can open at 6am….. several chains are planning to open just after this. Maybe it just because I don’t drink anymore that this seems so crazy to me?!?

I am nervous of normal returning as I had stepped back from normal for a good year or so. This is my new normal and I love it!!

I did not love the weather today!! It has stoated down all day… absolutely soaked on the dog walk again.
This is where the dogs usually play and Craig day over the other side of the burn. Bhru stuck her tongue in it to take a drink but didn’t go any closer.
Same at this but! It’s like they are on a life raft together 🤣
Phone got soaked every time I took a pic!
Drookit pup #1 wouldn’t stop playing with the stick long enough! Check the coos behind her under that tree… miserable!
Drookit pup #2
Drookit pup #3 always happy regardless of the weather… 😬😆
Bhru’s telling Calaidh Reek St is flooded
Did manage to see some beauty in the dreich day!
Thistles in the rain

It’s all about how you look at it… I was walking along thinking this is miserable, cold and wet, must be crazy being out in this when I saw a neighbour in Reek Street and he said “good weather for ducks!” 🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆🦆 that really made me smile as I’ve not heard that in years!! Splashed through all the puddles in my wellies from then on! 😆

And I wonder why my house isn’t a palace?!? Check these 3…. how many sopping wet dogs can you fit on a couch?! Least I put their dog robes on!! Unlike some people 😬🤣

Came home from dog walk and did a poop scoop as I was soaked anyway…. thought it would be a good idea to do it before the bins go out. Got the grey bin ready and took it round the front…. it’s Friday…. grey bin doesn’t go out until Tuesday……. wtf 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣🤣🤣 my brain is frazzled today as it’s been such a busy week. Not busy in the sense of how busy I used to be… but very busy for me. I did another 2 Pawsitive Solution calls today… the first was dreadful… it was like putting the wheelie bin out 4 days early! Nothing flowed…. but the second was great.

This is what I have to put up with…. 🥰😆🎾🐶

So now I am wrapped in my crocheted blanket with my feet up in front of the fire. I plan not to move until bedtime!

Thanks again to everyone for sticking with this everyday. It means a lot!

Stay safe everyone ❤️💜❤️ here’s to the next 100 days and who knows what they might bring?!? X

Day 569 Fit Body Farm 🏋🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️ work 💻 🚐 and the Gateside Hookers 🧶

Well I actually bounded out of bed at 5.05am, I mean honestly, who does that?!? I’ve had a good level of energy this week and haven’t felt lethargic at all. That’s actually a first for me.

There was a lovely light at the Farm when I left this morning.

Lovely skies

I’ve been drinking decaf coffee for 2 weeks now. My food intake has been better this week. I’ve been to the gym twice this week already. Guess one or all of that helps?!

The sky was lovely at Tartan HQ.

So I’ve come home, got my comfies on and sat on the bed to write this. I’m still watching Suits and really enjoying it.. I can watch it and multitask.

I’m having a good week. I’m calm but energetic, my anxiety is nowhere to be seen… she says….. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣

I did this “worry time” thing from the Daylight app last night…. Interesting and not sure how it works when I don’t have loads of worries flowing through me. I am meant to spend some time each day where I allow all the worries the bubble up and think about them over and over until they bore me.. they bored me very quickly and I only managed 4 minutes of worry time yesterday. I guess this might be a good thing to try on the days when anxiety is overwhelming.

I seem to have days of pretty severe anxiety and days of none. I don’t do anything by halves. 😆

I love the premise behind this. Nothing is more important than making time for you ♥️
This is really powerful
This made me giggle 🙊
For anyone who needs to see this ♥️
Very true
This is worth thinking about. Clearly out is so cathartic. We seriously need to get rid of loads of stuff
I live for a simple life!
I love this 💕

The next one really struck me. Reading up on meditation, this is a powerful expression of sitting back and watching your thoughts. See them as clouds passing on a blue sky.

So I have the Gateside Hookers in less than an hour. It’s the first time I’ve been in 2 weeks so I’m looking forward to getting my hook out and getting some crochet done as I put my world to tights…. As we say 🤣🤣

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️

Day 568 it’s 6 years since we moved into oor wee hoosie 🏡

So yeah 6 years ago today we moved into our lovely wee cottage in a small village.

You know how it is when you’re on holiday and you look at something and wonder why you can’t live somewhere like that?! We had always loved old cottages. Loved the quaint and rustic look. Came home to a house in a big housing estate surrounding by hundreds of other houses and yet we knew no one around us. We smiled and had a wee chat with neighbours but it always just pleasantries.

We started looking for older and more unique houses and didn’t really care where we ended up. We ended up a 70 mile round trip from my job at the time.

We saw the cottage up for sale on the Wednesday, viewed it that night and bought it by Friday. The guy had a painting of a plane landing on Barra Beach on his wall. That’s our favourite place and we saw that as yet another sign.

When you move into a village you gain an extension to your family.

There is always someone here for you. Always someone ready to help you. You can borrow anything from anyone. Sugar…. There’s a lot of sugar changes hands…. 🤣 I’ve lost count of the amount of lovely meals that have arrived at our door from the pub next door… the doorbell rings, you go outside and no one is there but dinner has arrived…. And it’s always amazing!!

When we moved in several of the neighbours came to introduce themselves. We spent the first few years piecing everyone together as everyone knows everyone else and it takes a while to understand all the links!

And since then we’ve seen many of the stalwarts of the village sadly pass away and feel privileged to have met them and then lovely new neighbours move in and slowly we become a part of the history.

We’ve spent a small fortune on our 250+ year old cottage and it’s still not finished…. But it’s ours and we love it… and our lovely neighbours ♥️

We have miles of single track roads and fields around us for dog walks and if you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll have seen photos of so many of them.

Here we go today!

So work and then dog walk today.

It’s been rotten weather again. Pouring rain but I got a dry spell with the dogs.

The hedges have all been cut back since I last walked this way. Everything felt strange as it looked so different. You learn so much more about farming when you live in the country. It never stops. The work never stops.

Checking out the hedges mumma
Wet and muddy!

I’m having another productive evening. I usually sit down and never move but I’m making a point of getting things tidied up and it feels good.

The problem is…. I stand up and this happens….

Oh I should say I did a meditation this morning before I left for work! Check me. My mind was racing when I woke up so I thought I’d try and calm it down.

After this I’m off to do some work on the Daylight app… apparently I have some worry time scheduled where I can worry as much as I like about things but only in that time. Don’t laugh. I’m trying everything.

How the hell I stop worrying after worry time is the key….. let’s see how it goes.

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️

Day 567 a dreich autumn day, thankfully not camping! 🌧🍁🍂🌧

It’s so mild today, the alarm went off at 5am and out the door to the Fit Body Farm at 5.30am and realised how “warm” it actually was.

The Farm was good today. It stayed dry and the workout was all in the dark and it was still dark when I got to work. That’s the first time that’s happened. Acht the mornings are fair drawing in…. Not quite sure that’s the saying… 🤣🤣

It rained pretty much ALL day….. at one point it was stotting off the Tartan HQ portacabin.

Came home sharp to catch Craig before he left for work, for all of 10 minutes.. and took the dogs out. Some lovely soggy autumnal photos.

Off we go!
Autumnal gate!
These berries are everywhere…. It’s really quite Christmassy
The burn is really fast flowing and you can see the berries in the bushes at the back
Almost about to burst its banks
In for a paddle
Check the colour of the clouds
Bhru checking out the burn

So those unusual clouds basically meant that the rain was coming and it started again before I got home. Got a weeee bit wet!

So instead of being super tired and lounging around all evening I’ve put a washing on, filled the dishwasher, folded up dry clothes, ooooh made dinner. Actually that’s not fair to say…. I got a lovely double portion of Veg Chilli left over from the pub this weekend. Had that for dinner.

The point is that I’m trying to be more active and stop procrastinating.

So that was Monday.

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️

Day 566 from a dry, calm Nairn to a misty drive home 🏡

We were in bed for 7.30pm last night and honestly slept right through til 8am this morning. Musta needed it!!

It wasn’t as cold last night so we didn’t need the diesel heater on at all and I think the fresh air took its toll and we were out for the count.

It rained a fair bit overnight and we woke up to lots of condensation this morning!

So thought I’d show you how we roll in our tent…

Bhruic sleeping with Craig
Calaidh on me
Freya telling me it’s time to wake up!

Think she needs the dentist?!

Much cuter when she’s not being jaws!

So we finally got up.

Now check this photo and zoom in on the left hand side… that’s how close the Alpacas are to the tent.

The dark brown Aplaca is called Hamish.

Morning you guys!
Back Butteries this time for breakfast with coffee of course

Not sure if I said but I’ve been on decaf coffee this last week and I’ve noticed a difference in my anxiety. I am way calmer… now I realise this could be a number of things as I’ve been working on the Daylight app for anxiety too. It could just be that I’ve spent the last two nights in a field… maybe that’s it. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

The skies are dramatic
And then the sun came out!
Dramatic skies opposite though

I think the rain is coming but we are so lucky we got to laze around and pack up until we left about 1.30pm.

I took them down to the pond again. They love playing around here. We were very lucky that the site was so quiet so we could leave the dogs running around in the dog walk area…. They had a blast.

Poser!
Arty stone throw shot!
Mini thistle!

And so it was time to leave…. It started to rain about 10 minutes into our 4 hour drive and it rained pretty much all the way down. Just low cloud and misty rain. We were so lucky with the weather this weekend not to have been camping in it!

Few shots from the drive down…. I loved not driving!!

Lovely scenery all the way down despite the weather. We got stuck in 3 traffic jams but they only added 15 mins or so.

I am now here.

Remember we all got this!

Stay safe everyone 🔥🔥🔥

Day 565 a day in sunny Nairn! 🏕🐶🐶🐶

It was super chilly last night after we had dinner and we got the wood burning stove on and sat cooried in next to it. We sat out until just before 10pm.

We have the diesel heater for the tent… we had it on to start with. Switched it off through the night and back on again early morning as it had cooled down a bit. We have 2 cots that we sleep on and the dogs either lie on the floor or pick a person to lie on… literally.

So we didn’t sleep great. I was comfy and relaxed but always pretty aware of what was going on round about me. it’s hard not to be when 3 border collies want to use you as a trampoline!🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

Got up at 7.30 to take the dogs out and it was a lovely red sky. (Don’t want red sky in the morning though as that suggests the weather will turn?!?)

She know never cooks…. cooked bacon 🥓 for rolls and made coffee for breakfast.

Love a campfire breakfast 🍳

So we decided to head down to Nairn this morning as we didn’t see any of it the last time we were here. Nairn is only 3 miles from Barns Highland Campsite. 🏕

It’s cloudy and a bit overcast but I have my thermals on under my clothes. I have 5 layers on my top half!!! I am cosy.

Let’s all pose unwillingly beside the driftwood tree…
This tree is stunning!
The hammerhead shark hat strikes again

We had some fun with the frisbee and the girls ran for miles!

More tree art!
Love this view from up at the marina
Nairn Marina
View over to Cromarty

We went for a walk around the marina and then stopped at the Strathnairn Beach Cafe for coffee and a cake. To be fair we had only really just had breakfast but hey… it’s a holiday. And there’s always room for cake!

And as we waited for our order the sun came out!!!

Looking toward Inverness
Looking out to sea
Car park at the beach

We popped into Sainsbury’s and I spotted this wee guy in the car park 🍄

It’s amazing what you see when you take the time to look around you. when would you ever think this would grow right behind your parking space at a supermarket. Nature is amazing!!

The drive home to the campsite along lovely single track roads. it’s been blue skies and sunshine for most of the afternoon. Stunning!

On arrival…… 🤣🤣🤣

Creep!
This campsite is spotlessly clean

Took the dogs for a run in the field.

Bhru searching for her stone!
Calaidh waiting for a stone!
Doesn’t this look positively tropical?!?

If you look In the top left hand corner of the next pic you’ll see our car… that’s where we’re camped.

Same again here…. Campsite up directly behind Freya
They’ve loved playing around as there are no other dogs so they’ve had a bit more freedom
Sunshine!
Clouding over

Craigs watching the football now and I’m crocheting. We are sitting out in the sun but it’s disappearing fast and my fingers are still cold in fingerless gloves. My crochet is getting slower…. I’ve retreated into the car for a nap!

It’s been a beautiful day. It’s very cold but it’s so calm and bright…. No wind and no rain and that’s all we can ask.

The alpacas came down to check the dogs…

So Craig went to check them out!!

But you’re not dogs!

We made chicken and chorizo chilli and honey wraps tonight. They were so good. I’m really enjoying cooking though it’s hardly gourmet chef stuff… it’s good for me!

No sunset tonight but there’s still a lovely colour in the sky.

This has been another great break at Barns Highland. It’s so calm and peaceful here… the only sound is the barking of our own dogs…. When an Alpaca comes to visit 🤣🤣 no sign of the Highlanders today! Boo……

A quiet night in front of the stove for us. Just how we like it. The forecast looks good and the rain should stay away!

Stay safe everyone 🏕🔥🐶

Day 564 ROADTRIP to Nairn! 🚘🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🐶🐶🐶👫

And we’re off again…. This time it’s the 5 of us and it only took us a whole lot of hours to be ready to leave.

We’re in the Touareg this time and have brought the tent. Abbie the Campervan, who is just 200 miles shy of 100,000 miles on the clock, is having a rest at home. I’m having a rest in the passenger seat and it’s lovely to be chauffeur driven!!

Of course we woke up to the first frost of 2021…. Yay! Let’s go and sleep outside tonight shall we?!?

I’m feeling good, if you can’t tell. I am calm despite loads of triggers this morning. The delay in getting away, the amount of stuff we seem to have but I’m good. Craig might say I never helped pack but I stayed out the way at critical times when things may have overwhelmed me and spent time hanging washing and loading the dishwasher! The result is a calm and happy wife. What’s not to love?!?

So we left at 11.35 precisely.

Glasgow from the M74… check that sky! it’s not a pretty city but it’s a very pretty sky!
There were hundreds of geese migrating just before Perth but all I got was a tiny view of them through some long grass!!
Love this wee cottage
Pitlochry was heaving today but is a lovely wee town

Our first stop was Faskally just north of Pitlochry where we stopped to walk the dogs. Wow. What an unexpected surprise!

The view from the car!
Think this is my favourite 🤩
Of course hoddit, Doddit and ploddit were there too!
Heading north on the A9
Yay!
How cute is this?!?
When I was a wee girl my dad told me if you stamp in the long grass you might find pheasants… I stamped a lot and lost my sandal into the raging river just about here!! I will never forget that. I was gutted!

We arrived at our campsite just outside Nairn about 4pm. This guy is in a field literally 500 yards from us!

This one really is a poser!!

After I took a million pics of the coos, I took the dogs for a walk in to the pond.

As we were setting up the tent I realised that the sun was already starting to set.

Look at the colours in the sky. It was a lovely sunset.

The dying sun lit up this field

Here we are all set up in the sunset!

As we worked I just ran about taking photos. It was beautiful.

I cooked dinner…… did you hear that?!? Yeah I actually cooked fish fajitas.

That’s our first camping night dinner tradition. They were super tasty… the dogs want some!

Cooking at sunset
And all of a sudden these guys arrived!!

There was much woo woo woo-big from Freya. To be fair the Alpacas must have seen the dogs and came down to investigate.. 3 against 3! The two white ones are now lying in the field next us… guarding their land! 🦙 🦙

Sunset on 🦙

I took the dogs back in for another run round the pond and took this next pic with my head torch on…

Sunset over the pond is lovely!

The moon is stunning tonight too. This next pic looks really spooky.

I’ve had the best day. I’m so proud of my mood and most of my reactions today. I am calm and truly appreciating the moment. Every moment today for what it is. There have been some very special moments… I have never been that close to a highland coo!!!

So we’re sitting outside in front of the wood burning stove, the stars are outcast the moon is moody and I just had an alcohol free Eden Mill gin in a can with Rose Lemonade. Lovely!

More exploring tomorrow.

Stay safe everyone 🔥🔥🔥 and stay warm!

Day 563 a great sleep and a better day!

I was asleep on the couch by 8pm so jumped into bed before 8.30pm… had a great sleep until he-who-shall-remain-nameless shouted that there was a cat trying to get into the bedroom window…. 😳🐈

I hadn’t heard the cat meowing…. I heard the person who heard tha cat 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 Just saying…..

So I lay awake for a bit until I got up but it wasn’t the same crippling anxiety, as earlier in the week, that kept me awake more just a a gentle normal human thought process.

I’ve been doing some work on the Daylight app around anxiety and some really simple steps really help. A tense and release 10 minute session is so simple but effect.

It’s been a good day. I’ve got loads done. It feels good to be back in control after the craziness that anxiety brings…. but it also feels very good to be at my weekend again!

I’ve got loads of positivity to share. Have a read through each one and think about what they mean to you.

So lots of positivity today. We’re away for the weekend again so have to get organised to leave sharp tomorrow. I’m sitting in my comfies with my feet up thinking hard about what I need to take. 🤣

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️

Day 562 back to the Fit Body Farm and a whole lot less anxiety 🏋🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️

The 5am alarm. Oh how I’ve missed it. Not!

Now when I think of it I’ve been awake lying in bed worrying about everything I had to do in the day so I’d have been as well being at the gym in the morning. Way more productive on the old brain.

It felt really good to be back. I was anxious, I felt a bit uncomfortable but I settled in.

So my focus today was to try and deny my anxiety. I can’t let it define me. I can’t let it take over every situation in my life. I tried to focus on peace and being present I. The moment again.

Now I honestly read things like this throughout the day to help keep me calm.

So an ok day today. I’m shattered and missing crochet again tonight but I am wrapped up in a blanket on the couch and barely able to keep my eyes open.

I was recommended the Daylight app which is being made available to people in Scotland to help combat anxiety. I’ve already signed up and completed all the questionnaires and gone through the first exercise.

It’s really helped. I hope the rest of them will too. I need to take this by the horns and get it to……. 🤭😬

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️

Day 561 fighting anxiety all day but winning 🥇

Honestly it’s so tiring battling the constant fight with anxiety. I slept like a log… out for the count until 5.20am.

When I woke up I realised I was really tense. My jaw was clenched and my neck solid and my head was thumping.

I took some paracetamol but they never touched the sides. Tension. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like tension as bad as this. Those antidepressants must have numbed everything.

I know I need to eat better, get back to exercise and look after myself a bit better and all of that will help.

So today’s been tough. There’s nothing bad happening, nothing I shouldn’t be able to handle with my eyes closed, just a constant welling of anxiety at things happening throughout the day.

Yet…. every time I have talked myself out of it and been proud of the way I’ve dealt with it.

At lunch I did a 5 minute meditation to calm anxiety. That helped a bit too. Just taking time out to breathe.

I know how ridiculous this all sounds. I hear myself. I know you may read this and think jeez…. just chill out. Calm down. Relax. There’s nothing to worry about. Chillax. 🤣

I am trying…. Every single minute of today I had to work at it.

Wow 🤩

Yeah maybe I should just keep some of this noise to myself. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

When I got home from work I nipped into Claire’s for Cole Kitten Cuddles.

Look at how cute he is!! He’s so teeny.

So I’ve finished Grace and Frankie on Netflix now and am looking for a new show…. I’ve started watching Suits as I write this. There are 9 seasons.

I could be some time…. 🤣🤣

This too shall pass.

Just need it to bloody hurry up.

Stay safe everyone ♥️💜🧡

Day 560 another day a the office 🚐🚐🚐

Today did not go at all as planned but my world did not fall apart.

I didn’t sleep well last night. I was awake for about 3 hours and ended up on the couch for a bit so I’m tired now and a bit lost for words. Doesn’t happen often eh?!

I’ve been calm most of the day. I’ve been ruffled a few times and felt the anxiety flutter but I’ve dealt with the situations as each one arose and dealt with them like a calm, normal person instead of flying off the anxiety spectrum.

That’s been such a relief. I love calm after a storm. The calm feels even better than you can imagine.

I’ve picked up some meditation to try again. Meditation has worked for me in the past and at the moment it feels like the next thing to try. I read that different things help different people at different times and that resonated with me.

My lovely in-laws were here when I got home tonight as they’d had a wee day out in Largs. Had a quick catch up with them in the village pub before heading home and getting into my comfies.

Early night for me!

Stay safe everyone 💜🧡💜
