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.
.. 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:
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.
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!
I went for a walk with the kids this afternoon and we found loads of these yellow flowers - as ever I haven't a clue but we thought they looked nice. The sky got blacker and blacker while we were out and it poured with rain just after we got home.
editty editty - Dad says it's yellow loosestrife! And Google says you can dye with yellow loosestrife. Hmmm :-).
The kids were out with my mother-in-law and came back with various bits in pieces in this bag - the pattern reminded me, appropriately enough, of once upon a time, a long time ago when I was in El Toro, California on the 4th of July.
Once upon a time my friend Bee told me about 'project 365' in which you take a photo a day for a year. I wasn't that disciplined about it and it took me one year and 3 months to reach Day 365, but it quickly became a habit of sorts and also a record of my year. So I've overrun but I continue with it anyway!
