Such a lovely start to the week - glad to be outdoors as much as I could. We had such a dry spell that the cattle needed watering more often - and they certainly let me know about it. The weather turned wetter midweek, as we headed over to Stornoway to see the Channel 4 news programme being broadcast - and we were on telly! Sadly it was all prearranged, so I didn't get to speak, but at least my visual message went out.*
We were doing a bit of dogsitting for our neighbour - Buster is a great dog - so friendly and playful. He likes a game of football and actually chases sticks! A great novelty for us, as Mick doesn't do play. Oh, and I made the absolute best butternut squash soup and cheese croutons from this recipe. Friday was a day off school and it was sunny and warm - off to the beach - where else? yay!
And, finally, another arrival down in the sheep field - a fine big ewe lamb.
Wishing you all a great seven days ahead. xx
