Midgey Monday

overcast 18 °C

It's been a quiet couple of days here. Mainly because of the weather - grey & a bit miserbale. Not so good for walking. But not bad for eating Scottish pancakes. Or picking snow peas and digging potatoes.

Yesterday was a bit of a foodie day. We went to a friend of Louise's for brunch of pancakes. Later in the afternoon we had a short walk out the back. But the weather ended up being quite conducive for toasting bread and marshmallows in front of the fire. Yum!

A big storm was predicted but didn't eventuate here tho' apparently big seas were experienced further south. We had fairly mild weather and it was quite warm for half an hour! We did some gardening tasks and I got to experience the dreaded midges. Not sure if they are as annoying as sandflies or not. I had asked what was on the other side of the loch - visible as I look out the window. So we drove round there this afternoon, just as the rain came! We had a wee explore of the coastline and also of an old cemetery - overgrown and disused now. A couple of headstones dated to the 1880s but many had no markings at all.

Tomorrow we might manage a walk but its more likely we will be getting ready for our trip to the mainland. The weather is forecast to improve. Just in time!

Louise says I must mention that it was nice enough to have lunch outside though I pointed out we have done that at least twice now.

Glad the hurricane didn't eventuate, however it must have been comforting to know you were on an island where the buildings have stood for hundreds of years!
