Friendly bull trying to lick the camera - this shot missed a great slurpy tongue by nanoseconds.

missing weather

There was just something about this which made me laugh - I just can't put my finger on what exactly!

Out at knitting night!

Toy mouse that is - well and truly shredded by Cat2.

The sound of hail bouncing.

Busy day tidying up and sneezing today (cause and effect) so only pictures taken were of braiding this evening.

Foal Show

Rubbish picture, we were just leaving and in a hurry!
This was the Foal Show tent at the museum's Christmas event.

offended cat, annoyed at being stuck inside

Pesky weather,

Inside instead of outside, just for a change.

Miss Mouse singing to herself on the way back from our little brambling expedition. And the end result:

Apple and blackberry crumble. Delish.

A little overflow issue

That's a doll's Moses basket, not a cat basket, should you be wondering. Both cats love it but Toby has yet to be convinced that he's really a bit too big for it.

I should probably pull it up. No idea what it is.

A trip on the train

The Boy and I went into Glasgow for a bit.

And I bet that poor sunflower is regretting poking its head up higher than the fence!

off for a walk

Isn't it amazing how it can be bucketing down, yet only look mildly damp in a photograph?

Happy second birthday cats!

As an extra-special treat they got tinned tuna for dinner. They love that with a passion!

The Heavy Horse Show

The kids and I were at the Heavy Horse Show at Kittochside, while MrBorg went off on a motorbike trip. This was just as the heavens opened. And boy did they open! We all had raincoats on but they all ended up soaked through.

Peace reigns..

.. in the little village we know so well. Oh no, that's Asterix, isn't it? Well, peace reigned here too. The kids went out with my Beloved to get a birthday present for their cousin (and ended up at Pollok Park for the third time in three days) so I had the house to myself. Bliss.

Apart from hoovering, potting up some achillea and doing a load or two of laundry, I also had time for a bit of this:

Pollok Park revisited

Yes, we were back again for an early trip to the playpark (i.e. before it got mobbed) followed by a visit to the Burrell Collection (more of which on my other blog) and some ice-cream. Though the sky was very heavy and thundery-looking, it came to nothing more than a light shower.

Pollok Park again

This time we took Uncle Skipalong (formerly Hopalong) as he had the day off. We had a picnic. Miss Mouse just asked turned to me and said 'Mama, where did we have lunch?' . 'We had the picnic, remember?' I replied. 'No.' 'At Pollok Park?' 'No.' Showed her the photos.. 'Oh yeah, I forgot.' Attention span of a goldfsh, that one.

We went for a wander and met the Pollok Park cat again. Very friendly little cat.

There was much running around and hiding. Can you see her? If not, click on the picture to enlarge!

And again!

I know it doesn't look all that sunny in the picture but believe me it was!

At the park.

Out with their cousins - and about a squillion other kids! A beautiful morning so the playpark was busy.
