Apologies for the lack of posts. Miss Fab, her sidekick plus the two cats have been left in the care of Aunty M who is sending through regular updates and photos but I haven’t had time to sit down and compose a post.
I’ve had a change of scenery for the last few weeks.
St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh
Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat
The National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, one of the places I once worked.
My old university
Dunbar Harbour, East Lothian
Not a marsh thistle
The bumble bees loved this particular flavour
They also loved this plant in my friend’s garden up t’north. I’ve no idea what the plant is.
My mum’s cat. It has a name but I call it the YouTube cat because it’s so fat it should be on YouTube.
This one’s for you Rose! It’s a cheeky herron gull which landed on our bonnet while we were eating fish and chips in the car. They have a red dot on their beaks which, if my university memory serves me right, is a pecking point for the young. I’m not sure if that’s true.
This is what you would normally expect of a Scottish summer but in fact, it was marvellous weather for just about the whole trip. In fact, inland 10 mins from where this was taken there was glorious sunshine.
And of course, everything stopped in Dunblane for the Men’s Finals. I watched it in the house where Andy Murray used to live – my friend lives there now!
… he did us proud! Well done Andy!
Both dogs sat on Aunty M’s feet during the fireworks on Territory Day.
George and Fergus stayed close on cracker night too.
I can’t wait to see my two dorks again. 🙂
Meanwhile, the wheels have fallen off the front gate, a rat moved into the store room and decided he didn’t like it so has moved upstairs into the house and Elsie has demolished 2 more collars (at last count). Marvellous.
