We had something of a dull day with threatened rain, but still managed a walk. We decided to go out and have a breakfast at one of our local garden centres, Howdens, which just happens to have a craft shop, so to work up an appetite we walked there, about three miles, through some farm land and let the wind blow the cobwebs away. It's quite a nice walk, at least there were horses to see and some lovely black faced sheep, even caught a Red Kite and a Buzzard. We used to have some gorgeous places to walk but the amount of building that's going on is amazing and eating up all the green land, however, I know people need home to live in, but I do wish they would employ architects that have some inspiration and not just fire up houses that look like boxes.
We had a nice breakfast then walked back home, around six miles, my legs were a bit sore, but pleased we went out and it didn't rain.
Well our Solar Eclipse was a damp squib, cloud was pretty heavy, but I did feel it as it got cold, dark and very windy. Alistair had no luck at the observatory either, but he did end up being on the 6 o'clock BBC Scotland News. A News Team were there and interviewing somebody important, when the camera swung round and there was my DH, talking very animatedly to someone, without the least idea that he was within the shot. He says he's expecting to be recognised now when out and about, lol!!
Anyway, I have one of those cards that we don't like having to make, I had quite a spate of them a few month ago;
Really just a simple card, with an image from a CD and just added ribbon, pearls and a little bit of sparkle. I don't like to add too much for sympathy cards.
I've a few days off work, then back for three days then that is me finished for our holiday, this time next week we will be settling ourselves on board the Magellan and sailing up to Norway, or is it over to Norway, my geography was never up to much.
So that is me for tonight folks, enjoy the rest of your evening and see you soon, take care out there,
