Day 948 Remembrance Day 11/11/22 ♥️

Here are the girls wearing their purple poppies to remember all of the animals that died in war. 💜💜💜

Here is the window of our Village Hall. The Crochet Hookers started crocheting poppies in January 2022 and sadly only one of us got into it and enjoyed making them. They look lovely.

Lest we forget.

I woke at 4.30am despite being late in bed last night. I headed over to the Farm at 5.15am so was super early.

The guy who usually fixes my van was there and spotted that I’ve been driving a Tartan van all week and now that Abbie has strange new wheels. He told me to take her down to his garage after work tomorrow so he can get a look. Fingers crossed he might suss what is really wrong.

So the Farm was good, it’s really mild here just now. 14°C mid November is crazy. We worked hard and I was back home for 7.30am.

I had a wee lie down until 8.30am when I went out a walk with Calaidh and Holly and Leo next door.

Leo’s shadow looks huge as Calaidh is away up front.

The sky is so dark and yet the rain never came.

It’s a lovely sunrise and a great catch up.

So I’m still feeling good today. I’m tired but not that dog tired that I have been this week. When I got home, the doctor’s surgery called to say that they had referred me to the Gatehouse Clinic for the mirena coil. I realise there may be a huge waiting list, but this feels like a step in the right direction.

The little gift shop was good today. We were busy today and had boxes of new stock to unpack. Exciting times for me.

I should say here that Gayle won the Best Independent Retailer 2022 in the Scottish Business Awards. Sooooooo proud of her. She saw a gap in our local market and went for it and opened this lovely wee shop that’s become a hub in our community. I’m so proud to be a part of it.

Should have taken some photos as Gayle has changed the shop around completely so it looks like a different shop /and I’m seeing things I never knew were there!

Craigie has had a super productive day too and pressure washed the back garden again. It looks amazing!

So we need the wind to stop “blowin’ a hoolie” to help keep it clean and tidy in time for my birthday weekend next week. 😂😂

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
