Good afternoon all, how the devil are you this Thursday evening?
Hasn't this week gone fast?
The weather up here in the north of Scotland has been beautiful this week, summer has finally arrived.
Did you see that just down the road in Braemar yesterday it was hotter than Barcelona?!
I'm afraid crafting has gone out of the window and I have been outside enjoying the fine rays.
Yesterday after school we took the dog to the beach for a swim, although I think my little one was in getting as wet as the dog. It was a case of who could get to the ball first regardless of how far it went into the sea!
In the evening, hubby and I decided to pop to the harbour as the sunsets this week have also been fabulous. I have to say last night was not the best but still pretty special for all of a five minute walk from the house.
This was taken from the harbour looking out over the west bay towards Burghead. It surprised me that there were a few folk down there with their cameras.
How pretty is nature at it's best?
We had intended on taking a bottle of wine down with us but tea had taken slightly longer than planned. Such a shame as it was beautiful.
Today hubby and I had a day off together, a very rare occasion. We decided a trip through to Inverness was on the cards. We are in need of new carpets and a settee/chairs.
Not as exciting as craft shopping but a new sofa and chairs are ordered to arrive just before Christmas, I just need to decide now on the carpet colour to match.
Hubby said that's the last time he is taking me out for lunch! (Apparently I am too expensive!)
The crochet is coming on, everything is now suitable stuffed and is just needing stitching up and putting together, not long now and all will be revealed. It's not a frog or a kangaroo, but it is an animal so you are on the right lines. Mmmm.
I better go and sort tea as we have a meeting at one of the schools later.
Enjoy the rest of your sunny Thursday, it's oldie time again tomorrow.
That came around very quickly this week.
