This...That & The Other

Morning folks....Saturday saw a hive of activity in the garden.....lawn well and truly scarified...crikey 8 bin bags of thatch to take to the skip and then the job of trying to repair the scruffy piddly bits which I hasten to add are completely down to the toilet habits of The Furry Boy....
lots more jobs planned for Sunday but the place I call home....yes the good old North East of Scotland must have been the hottest place in Europe yesterday.....far too hot to tackle the garden jobs....I did make a start but after removing as much clothes as I dared I still felt like a greasy plook (spot for all you non Scots) and gardening in the buff isn't really on is it....don't want to terrify the it was onto Plan B....a lazy day relaxing under the parasol giving the brain a good old workout with the Sunday crosswords and the odd cuppa for company.  The Furry Boy gave up in disgust and took himself indoors to find the coolest spot.
And before I get stuck into lots of demo day and workshop stuff....I managed to sneak in a little play with the newest resident in the cubbyhole.....perfect for a bit of paper piecing....

And what a difference a day makes....woke up to a chilly misty it a heat haze which will burn off when the sun comes up or is it just going to be a damp foggy day....who knows...catch up with you all tomorrow.
