Day 67 another glorious day in the garden! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿☀️🌈

Gonna start today with some pics from last night. Went for a walk with Claire in a direction that we could not go wrong…. and I reckon it’s the first evening walk I’ve had in lockdown.

Sun set from Reek Street
Nature at its best
Spiers was really dark and moody
Coos just been fed!
Calaidh waiting so something to happen…. anything… 😆
Main road about 10pm on a Friday night
Sunset from the Memorial Hall Gateside

Could not get to sleep last night at all… the downside of not drinking alcohol at a BBQ is that you’re pumped full of caffeine from all the diet juice. Lay there exhausted with my eyes WIDE OPEN for what felt like hours… so a lazier start to the day. Up 8.45 and still sitting on the new decking as the sun starts to come round about 10ish. It’s another holiday hot heat day!! Scorchio!!!

Scorchio!!!!! ☀️☀️☀️

Guess where the ball is????

So we had a roll and square sausage with brown sauce and have decided that Craig’s on the stones until he passes out through heat exhaustion and I am on the greenhouse and planting out sweet peas if I can… might need a zoom call to mum and sad sad just to check requirements!!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Had a wee burst of energy then neighbours came to the wall to chat and I lost it! Have sweet peas out the greenhouse and can’t decide what to do with them… thinking a lazy sunbathing day should be the plan…. 🏝☀️ it’s not often we get temperatures like this! It must about about 25 degrees again!
Asked Claire to take a photo of this in her garden as it’s lovely!! 🌺🌺🌺
Beautiful Bhruic!
Calaidh’s turn to pose! I’m now lying on theses dog beds… be rude not to!!
850kg of stones done just waiting on the next bag to be delivered
Neighbours get no peace when hiding their garden!!!
I need to remember this when I feel particularly down. Today is another good day!
I am now having a weeeeeee rest on the hammock!
This is my view.

I’m lying here contemplating the last few weeks and realising that it’s ok to have bad days.

I may not have a job anymore but I know everything’s going to be ok. It’s been a year since I was last in the office working…. a whole year sounds like an amazing holiday but it’s been the hardest year of my life. Its taken a long time for me to realise that life is good. I could do with losing 3 stone but other than that I have everything to be grateful for. I am so grateful to be living through lockdown in Gateside. We have everything we could want in a holiday home and of course the weather helps. I have family and friends who love me. ❤️

…and I have a husband who is currently demonstrating his pressurised water jerrycan…. the 2nd one… for drinking water this time. I’m watching with one eye as I write this from my hammock…. sorry his hammock as I’ve been reminded…
I have always believed this… even through the bad times ❤️
In today’s slight movement by Julie… I held on to the end of this while Craig made it for my sweet peas!! To be planted in the next few days. I’m sure he’ll say I only held onto it half heartedly…. 🤦🏻‍♀️🙄😆
The puppers modelling the new deck! Took this last night in the last of the sun.

Stay safe everyone! 💜💜💜🌈
