Day 832 got an empty!!!!! 🙈🙊🤣🤣

An empty in Scotland is an excuse for a party… it usually means your parents are away when you’re a teenager so you can get all your mates round for a sesh…..

She who doth not drink and craves solitude sees this as the opposite… a chance to squirrel away, sit in silence, preferably in the sunshine obviously, with the two puppers I have left. Bhruic and Freya.

And relax…

Craig is away to and Overland Bound weekend and it was either we all go and try to manage 3 dogs around everyone else or I stay home and he takes Calaidh. So Calaidh is away on her holidays.

I went back to the Fit Body Farm this morning. There were only 5 of us today and it was raining but the rain was really refreshing. After Tough Mudder any rain is nothing. 🤣

I can straight home and took Calaidh out for a walk so Craig could finish packing. I have her a good run so she’s tired out for the drive. It was really murky and misty.


You can see the cloud hanging over the Garnock Valley.

There are raindrops hanging from all the roadside weeds.

Thought this grass looked really atmospheric

Calaidh thought it was tasty!

As usual I took loads of photos….

This wee guy sat still while we walked past. No fear of Calaidh.

This next wee cutie was terrified of Calaidh and she was determined to find it!!!

Back home and saw Craig and a wet and soggy Calaidh off.

I then did the housework and got the house just as I want it for the weekend and then took Bhruic and Freya out. No pics as I met my neighbours so ended up chatting. By this time the sun is thinking about coming out.

I’ve done 4 loads of washing. It’s 3pm and the sheets are already back on the bed. This is the best drying day ever. Sunny and windy… I hate the wind but I’m allowing it for today. I’m using a new fabric softener so the washing smells lovely.

I must talk about the weather as the UK is experiencing an unprecedented heat wave and the following shows the temperature expected next week.

My lovely mum and dad are in a caravan right about where the 40 is….. 🔥🔥🔥

We are expected to hit 26°C on Tuesday which is pretty unheard of for us. I will be spending that mostly in a metal portacabin down in Dundonald…… 🔥🔥🔥

I would just like to point out that I just found out how to do the ° symbol today… my life is complete 🤣🤣🤣

Our summer has been pretty dreadful so it’s nice to see some heat coming. I just hope that Mum and Dad stay as cool as they can and that everyone is safe.

There is no denying global warming despite what some politicians try to tell us.

Sorry have to go…. Another washing playing a tune demanding attention!

I’ve had Claire into the garden for a cuppa and I managed to negotiate a lovely dinner in her house since I’m on my own. To be fair, I didn’t do any negotiating…. I just had to say yes!

Thanks to my lovely friend Anne for this next one. I’m gonna do this all weekend.

Stay safe everyone 🐝🐝🐝
