Day 704 ROADTRIP to Lauder with a Tartan Camper! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 and another lovely sunset 🌅

It was a beautiful morning! There was a slight dusting of ice on the van when I left for the Fit Body Farm at 5.30am. For the first time in about 4 months we actually did some of our workout in almost daylight.

I really enjoyed the workout today. I was buzzing and worked hard. It feels great.

The sky was lovely again this morning and it got quite warm when the sun came out. I say warm, it was Scotland warm. 6C or something like that!

So we’re heading over to Lauder today to deliver a customers van. It’s a 2 hour drive and 100 miles. For the first time today I joined the zero club and “almost” ran out of fuel. 😱😱😱

The fuel light came on at Harthill on the M8 which was only halfway and as soon as we turned off the Edinburgh city bypass, the fuel just plummeted. I got to the point when the fuel was down to 5 miles and we still had 15 to go. I was free wheeling down the hill from Soutra. I’ve never been so glad to see a Co-op petrol station!!!! I was sitting at 0 miles for at least the last 5 miles of the drive and I was actually shaking by the time I got to the petrol station. Adrenaline is a funny thing.

Our customer had a small herd of heilan’ coos…… and I couldn’t get a photo of them!!!! They were beautiful.

So here’s a photo of one I took in Nairn just so you know what they looked like 🤣🤣🤣

We hit heavy traffic on the way back so didn’t get back to Tartan HQ until 4pm. A quick day.

It was a beautiful day when I got home. Cold but very sunny so I took the dogs up the hill for a good run. They had lovely Auntie Claire let them out again today.

My anxiety didn’t allow me to ask her to do it twice in one week but worried she would be offended if I asked someone else… this is how my mind works.. so I gave her first refusal. 🤣🤣 so grateful for her help.

They posed beautifully for her.

So back to the walk….. beeeee-U-tiful!

These branches have fallen at the side of the road
I love the colours in the evening light

Now what could be more romantic than walking into the sunset….. shame it’s just with 3 dogs 🤣🤣

Loved these almost kissing sheep
Sun sets over our street

So a good day…. And I have the day off on Monday woo hoo!

Hope you all have a great weekend. I say that and hope that I can manage not to freak out in some way, as I seem to do when I have some time off and no plans…. I feel positive so fingers crossed I can keep it that way.

Stay safe everyone 💛🧡♥️
