Day 461 from scorching hot sunshine to torrential downpours!! A day in the life in Scottish summer.. 🌞🌞 ☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️

It’s been a crazy weather day today. It’s so hot we’ve been sitting outside and then the heavens open and we head in for a bit of housework and then back outside when it stops.

Outside at breakfast 🍳

We needed the rain. It was so torrential though that the road outside turned into a river in less than a few minutes!

Then this happened!!
I opened the windows to give them a wash!
None of the drain pipes could cope

During showers I’ve put washing on, hung it up, swept floors, cleaned the bathrooms, hoovered, packed for the gym to tomorrow… remembering spare shoes to change into as the forecast is not good for tomorrow morning!

Uh oh!
Now this again!

Everything looks so fresh after the rain. It’s lovely to come back out and sit and watch the steam rising as the heat of the sun dries it all up.

So a very exciting thing happened today. It’s nothing on the grand scheme of things but I was over the moon….. the flip flops I took to Loch Ness back in May had not been seen since. I looked everywhere for them…. I knew I hadn’t left them. I’ve emptied the camper van, the house. You name it, constantly on the look for these damn flip flops.

I picked up Craig’s rucksack today…… thought “please let them be in this front pocket….” As i unzipped it.

Ta dah!!!!

Honestly I was like a kid in a sweetie shop. So so so so chuffed I found them again. I’d even looked into buying them again in the hope that made them re-appear….. maybe it did….. Simple things. 🥳🥳🥳

It’s been a lovely lazy day fully dictated by the weather…. As we do in Scotland.

I made spicy meatballs for an early dinner and now have my feet up in the sun while Craig cleans up. 😉

A few pics of some flowers in the garden.

Sambucas nigra
Peonies have been battered by the rain a bit
As have the roses 🌹
Huge triggers for me
I’ll take the pain of discipline over regret any day
This is something so many of us do…..

Me and my flip flops might manage a wee nap in the hot evening sun but that’s about all….

Stay safe everyone 🌞🌞🌞
