Nice little deer on the webcam

We saw a nice little deer on the webcam at about 6am. It was back and forward grazing on the bushes right under the camera.

Cheese Souffle

I seemed to have an excess of eggs this week, so I made cheese souffle for lunch. This will annoy my Mum as it is her all time favourite. I will need to stop using the recipe I have for it though. It comes from a book which I won as a school prize in […]

Another scary experience

I have to say that this has been the week for scary things. I went into our tractor shed to get the lawnmower out, and there was a wasps nest the size of my head in the corner. No idea where this came from as it wasn’t there when R mowed the lawn last week. […]

Interesting Day

For my sins I have said that I will swim across the loch for charity next week. This is in aid of “Caring for Carers” (I’ll give this a punt and say that if anyone wants to sponsor me that would be great and the link is here to do it online https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/debyrough123) Anyway, I […]

No Broad Beans

I have to say I give up on broad beans. They are tasty but take way too much processing. So I bought a pack of them from ASDA. First of all I had to take them out of their pods. The pack of pods was huge, but once the beans had been (lols) taken out, […]

Three Deer on the lawn

This morning I glanced out of my office window and saw a mother roe deer and her two fawns. I had seen one of the fawns briefly when I was doing the composting yesterday and had been a bit concerned that it was on its own. But obviously Mum and sibling are still around. The […]

Slug in the night

I had an exceedingly unpleasant experience at 3am today. I got up to go to the loo in the dark, and on the way encountered something wet and squishy under my foot. I thought it was going to be another of Tora’s catches and I suppose in a sense it was because otherwise I can’t […]

Cat Defeats Badger

I must say you can hand it to Tora for sheer nerve. In the middle of the night he had an encounter with a badger which must have been three times his size – he bopped it on the nose and it fled in panic. Loads and loads of wildlife at the moment – when […]

Nae Rasps

Most years I get a generous amount of wild raspberries from both our garden and out towards Inveronnich. This year someone has beaten me to the punch – the grass is trampled down and all the best rasps have gone. After spending half an hour and only ending up with a handful I gave up. […]

Cutting my own hair

It has been a source of contstant frustration for me that after one brief period of having a local hairdresser in the village, we have had to go to Helensburgh to get our hair cut. This takes the best part of a day by the time you drive down and back, and it is even […]
