Day 75 who knew it was to be so hot again today?! ☀️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Love, love, love Scotland in the sunshine! Thought the forecast was really bad for today but seems that was wrong…. not that I saw the sun first thing. I was in the most amazingly deep sleep…. absolutely sparko but I was vaguely aware of a dog barking. Usually a sign they need out but I’m too comatose to move.

I’m aware of Craig the whirlwind getting up, getting a drink and then letting the dogs out from their room upstairs… whatta great guy. Then he comes thumping back into the bedroom with the 3 of them shouting “where’s your mum?” “ go, get her” and I’m ambushed. 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾 (that’s exactly the number of paws….☀️)

It’s not an easy awakening… there are sharp claws and lots of licking… and that’s just Craig… honest to god what a baptism of fire being woken by 3 x 20kg puppers…. 😳

I have no photos of the actual event as that would just be wrong…. though I do have have to say I thought about it 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️👩🏻

So last night we had the most amazing sunset and pink rainbow at about 10pm. I couldn’t get pics from the garden of the rainbow but Rachel 2 doors down got a cracker. 🌈💜🌈

It started to rain through the sunset creating a pink rainbow!
There were almost 2 of them
Rachel also took this amazing photo over the village hall from her house tho I kinda reckon she musta been up on the roof! 🤣
I caught this out in the old pub car park
The view from across the road
Managed to capture the sunset in our newly painted front door – a great photo to symbolise Stay at Home for coronavirus
I may have gone overboard trying to get some different reflections 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣
The colours in the sky were just amazing, that’s the faintest hint of the rainbow that I managed.
The windows were on fire!

So enough about yesterday 🤣 had a lovely lazy morning over coffee. Did some work down on the messy part of the back of the garden as we are getting some artificial grass delivered to cover it so tried to flatten it out. No photos as you’d probably not notice any difference but I picked all the stones and twigs out ready for covering.

Craig and the girls came down to inspect progress.
Then Claire suggested a wee dog walk…. here’s Calaidh who’d rather be with her!
They had a good wee play in the field again
Whatever one has the other wants…
Calaidh not giving the stick up for anyone!
Calaidh’s bum in our socially distanced selfie
Quick play in the burn
The fields are so dry but it’s great for walking!
So home to do some crochet isn’t he sun… the blog is interfering with my crochet time these days so I managed a good few squares today. Introducing mustard into the equation… done 29 so only 19 left to go!! Jeezo man…………….
No show without punch. To be fair to her I was crocheting on a dog bed 😬😆

If you’re a regular to my ramblings you may be aware I have a lovely VW Beetle up for sale at the moment… one careful lady owner 🙄😬😆 and really randomly I have been looking at replacing this with a VW camper. It will be ideal for transporting the dogs, a chance to camp inside if needs must rather than a tent and I don’t know but it’s been gnawing away at me for a long time now. I’m not 100% certain why but it just feels right. I’ve been looking for a long time as there are so many configurations, models, prices, layouts etc etc. Before lockdown I was considering setting up a private tour of Scotland for tourists (yeah like obviously…) in my camper van…. with me as the guide. I not certain whether this would still be a possibility of if it would be something for the future. One thing I’ve learned in these last few years is that my gut isn’t often wrong. What will be will be and I need to go with my gut. Worst case if I get one and it doesn’t work out I can resell and not lose anything.

So had a lovely WhatsApp video chat with a lady in Emsworth as she talked us round her VW Transporter. She uses it as a car and makeshift camper. It’s a blank canvas waiting to be done. A wee project for me maybe?! Anyway, I can’t go and pick it up. She knows I’m interested and will let me know if she gets any local buyer. We just have to wait and see if it works out. She wants it to go to a loving home and think she could tell that it would. (Yeah I know us women are loopy!!)

Will keep looking though as can’t travel to pick one up yet

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for the likes, comments etc on my blog. I’m loving doing this. It keeps my thoughts clear in my head and gives me a few hours a day where I can rabbit away in peace and Craig doesn’t have to listen!

I’ll get back to coronavirus tomorrow… stay safe everyone 💜💜💜
