Different View today

I captured a different view from my normal ones in a photo today which I think was pretty nice. This was from the Lochgoilhead bank of the Donich looking up towards the hills (inc. Benn Donich). Two minutes walk from our house. Very pretty in such nice weather.

Nice Meal

I couldn’t resist making this one for my friends at the weekend – so that if they asked me what was for dinner I could say ‘Egg and Chips with a slice’. So for the ‘Egg’ component – I fried two medium onions and two large peppers (any colour) until soft and towards the end […]

Donich Challenge

R was nominated by one of his ‘friends’ to do the ice bucket challenge. He very completed this in the Donich this morning and I would have liked to have linked the video here. However he has threatened me with dire consequences if I post it on line – so I will have to content […]

Marten and the Birds

We got another really good look at our Marten yesterday. Again it was R who just happened to glance out of the window mid afternoon and notice him perched on the bird table. We’ve actually noticed a load of extra bird activity in the last week or so after several months where they haven’t seemed […]

How do you like them apples?

One of the apple trees in our garden is loaded with fruit which look ready, so this afternoon I picked one to try it. Not sure what variety it is but it has a crisp white flesh and a red skin, and it was in fact ready. I cut it in half and gave half […]

Summer coming to an end here

Well it is feeling a bit autumnal here for all we are still in August. A few leaves are coming off the trees, the brambles are nearly ripe and the polytunnel and greenhouse are nearly empty after the last month of glut. This evening R mowed the lawn (which doesn’t seem to be taking the […]

Off to the big City

I’m off to Glasgow for a business meeting, and as always seems to happen, it is a beautiful day in Lochgoilhead today. R gave me a lift to Helensburgh because he is having new tires put on the car today – they were low on tread when we had the MOT done last week and […]

Master class in cute

I think I will give up my job as a security tester and live off the income my cats could make by giving masterclasses in cute. My parents went home yesterday and I stripped their beds. Ten minutes later I came back with the clean sheets and Schrodi had ensconced himself in the pile of […]

An embarrassment of riches…

The cherries, raspberries and strawberries are all over now which is a shame because they were a very welcome addition to breakfast every day… However the plums are now ripe and there is an embarrassingly large number of them considering they come from one small tree. I’ve had a bit of a battle picking them […]

Three Men in a Boat

Yesterday we went on a trip we have been promising ourselves since we moved in and hired a boat to go out on Loch Goil. It was J’s birthday during the week, so I booked the boat for myself, J, R and (introducing my brother) N. The evening before the guys had stayed over and […]
