To be fair, it’s been a beautiful day inside too. Finally we have a day of shorts and vest top…. Out in the garden. You’ve kept us waiting for this, 2023!
I slept really well all night, again. Could not wake up this morning at all. Have been looking forward to some good weather and getting the bedding washed, dried and back on the bed, so,I finally got moving.
The day started with dog jog and very tangled leads 🤦🏻♀️😂
Nothing is more beautiful than the colours on a sunny day. That sky…. 💙🏴
These next two are just the cow parsley at the side of the road! It’s taking over the world!
The buttercups are out in full force too.
The cows are totally checking us out!
So back home and it was straight into doggy bath time…. It’s been a while and when you have 3 dogs, grooming can add up.
Freya was first and I forgot to take photos of her…. I am totally soaked after her!
Then Calaidh who was surprisingly dirty… she hides it well in that black coat of hers.
She who wants to bit the shower spray any chance she gets, is surprisingly traumatised by being washed! Then Bhru… she looks like she’s smiling but I think she thought she could get out the bath via the taps… she’d planned an escape 😂
Here they all are out in the garden, drying very quickly, all fluffy and clean. Note the bedding on the line as well…. It’s definitely washing day in our house!!
All that and 2 loads done and I t’s not even 9.30am!!
Next step was the rockery. Now I think it looks lovely and wild but it is FULL of weeds and someone I live with, is not a fan of a weed…..
I’ve done really well but it’s nowhere near where it needs to be. I hit a wall around 12.30!
So really for the rest of the day I’ve been sitting on a sun lounger and having spurts of weeding energy.
I did open my eyes to this…. At one point!
That’s what happens when you put yourself at their level… 😂
Another spurt…. Before.
We’ve had a lovely dinner tonight…. Cooked over the fire!
Spiced venison hotpot. It was amazing!!
Craig did very well for his first South African potjie…. Or as close as we can get to it! The “rules” say it’s not to be stirred but we stirred ours….. ours I have a cheek… I stirred Craig’s 🤦🏻♀️😂. There’s lots of seasoning in it that we bought from Amazon. The meat is browned with the onions and them the veg layered on top. He made enough for 6 people. Guess what’s we’re having for the next few days?!?
So all in all, we’ve had a really lovely day. We’ve done lots but also rested lots too.
It got a wee bit chilly an hour or so ago so I gave in and put a T-shirt on… of course now the sun is back out.
The sign of a good day off is when it feel likes it’s been longer than one day and it’s still only 5.15pm!
Stay safe everyone 🏴💙☀️
