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 […]

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 […]

Sea Plane Trip

We went on the sea plane trip from Loch Lomond over the lochs and isles of the west coast today. This was a birthday present for my mother and had been postponed from April because the weather was awful then. This was the wee plane which takes off from the Cameron House Hotel. The weather […]

The ideal man and woman

I’m sure I am pretty old fashioned and doubtless my mum is too (although she is probably entitled to be as she is getting on a bit now). I’m not mentioning anything intimate in these descriptions but this is what I thought should be done by a man and a woman respectively. Man Appearance – […]
