The torrential rain finally stopped last night and you’d have been forgiven for thinking the twilight sky was an indication it had been a lovely day. I sat at the back door listening to the birds tweeting and watching the clouds clears out 9.30pm. A lovely wee moment while the dogs had a wander. It’s times like that that mean a lot more to me now.
I managed a good 12 hour sleep last night and could have slept all day and it’s only the back of 2 so far! Mr Avery, on the other hand, had a lovely wee night to himself coming through to bed at about 4 am and he was back up again at 8! I did wake up at 3.03am and heard some political debate on the tv, Boris Johnson blah blah blah-in’ away as only he can do 😳 the stuff of nightmares! 🤦🏻♀️😱🤣 someone is gonna crash later 🤣🤣🤣 (hmmm it’s now 6.30pm and he’s still going strong….)
The Scottish government have now relaxed the 5 mile limit for leisure travel so I’ll be looking forward to a wee trip to the coast when the weather lifts a bit.
Outdoor hospitality will open back up on Monday 6th July with the Gateside Inn opening next door! Holly has released the following announcement:
I know what we’re like living on a main road. We’ve enjoyed the light traffic, our village has felt like it belonged to just us and it’s been lovely. I can’t imagine dreading the influx of tourists in camper vans taking over again…. I know I’ve just got one….. 😬😆 I’ll be different….. 🚐🖤😊 I read that Skye are nervous as to who’s going to open up first as the locals might blame them for bringing COVID-19 back to the island. It’s a tough time for everyone as those of us who have been stuck at home for so long are desperate to get away but I know a lot of us realise that this is still too early.
The Camping & Caravanning club sites have opened today but only to self contained units as the toilet blocks are not open yet. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs have asked people to wait until around the 17th and Glencoe have asked visitors to be mindful of locals and the local area.
We’ve spent the afternoon watching the Goonies as Craig was incensed earlier in the week when he found out I hadn’t seen it!!! It was really good and his wee face was a picture with all the iconic lines.
It came about as he stumbled on an amazing YouTube show with Josh Gadd called Reunited Apart. In line with Covid-19 restrictions he pulls together actors from old movies and talks about the making of the film in a zoom call style. So far we’ve watched The Lord of the Rings 💍, Ghostbusters 👻, Splash 🧜🏻♀️, Goonies (obviously) Back to the Future and Ferris Beuller’s Day Off!!
Highly recommend it! What a trip down memory lane and wonderful to hear the sentiment from all the actors in these strange time. What a great idea!
So we’re off to decide on this evening’s viewing…. how many movies, box sets, tv etc have we watched during lockdown?!?!? Pure hunners. Staying in is the new going out and I love it!!!
Stay safe everyone 💜❤️💜
