we got our heads down and got stuck in
Ulla, Lindsey's dog, (also seen here) was well behaved and enjoyed rummaging about on the shore too. And no harm came to any creature in the taking of this picture!
And on the drive home, and on cue, what could be more iconic than this 'Highland Coo' waiting patiently by the side of the road for our visiting friends. He posed for photos with an air of bemusement!

I've been a bit quiet of late. Not much on the blogging front. I have spent the last week with a paintbrush and a grouting tool and a tub of tile adhesive. But the shower room is now complete - and pictures will follow.
today has been wonderful. Big, bright bold and sunny.
And it's time to do the weekly shop. I think I must have one of the best drives to the shops ever.
We've had a little bit of snow recently. But I want to reassure family and friends who email and phone us, that we are not stuck in the frozen north! We do have the sunshine from time to time and the roads are passable. Today the 'pothole menders' were out in force. The shops are stocked and the shelves are full - apart from vacuum packed chestnuts I noticed were missing today on the shelves in Tescos! People must be stocking up in case they can't get out to the shops between now and next Christmas!
As I drove home again, I listened to the radio, and the presenter said what a horrible gloomy day it was and looking at the weather map he could see the only place with some sun appeared to be in Dorset. The rest of the country was covered in cloud. I should just like to correct that and point out that it was also jolly nice here too!
