::: Camera Shy :::

We'd been out late the night before, the first thing that pops into your head is the pub, isn't it? No, we'd been out in the pouring rain, wellies on, torch in hand.

I'd driven home from work at 10.30pm. Carefully weaving all over the road. Driving very slowly, with the window wipers on as fast as they would go. Why?

Because the ground was moving, the whole entire road was covered in TOADS!

Then this morning I'd gone out with my camera hoping to get one final glance and perhaps a photograph while the weather was dry.

But no such luck, but I did spy Lucky acting strange though. Then I realised why when I spotted this cat.

::: Cakes :::

 
I made these butterless and eggless cakes earlier this week.


They are yummy, but I think I should've put some raisins or chocolate chips in them as they are quite muffin-like.

::: Crocs :::

 
Did you know I love Crocs?


I have two pairs. They are so comfy, easy to slip on and off when going in and out of the house and great for driving too.

::: Mice :::

 
They are happily living off of our scraps.


Let's just hope Lucky doesn't notice them.

::: New chick(en) on the block :::

 
This is our new chicken/cockerel for the garden that we got from my parents.


I think it looks pretty swish.

::: Montrose :::

 
I got transferrred to my little home town for a short while for work this week.

 
I had a great time in Montrose, seeing my nieces, visiting parks, seeing friends and, of course, working!

 
But now I have the flu :(

I mowed the grass yesterday and look what I saw running away from me?!

 
How HUGE is this beetle?

::: Taggy WIP :::

 
I started making this Beatrix Potter taggy a while ago, round about the same time as making the babygrows here and here.

 
It is yet another Work In Progress that I hope to finish soon.

::: Potting :::

 
I got some colourful new plant pots from Steve for our anniversary.

And in true Scottish style I had to do some gardening in the rain.

::: Tomato Plants :::

 
The tomato plants weren't doing too well in the kitchen so I decided to move them outside.


Lucky wasn't much help though.

It is an extra play area for them as they get to run around the house too.

::: Rabbit Run :::

 
It's not entirely finished yet.


It needs a 'lid' to keep the bunnies in and the cat out.
 


But so far so good.

::: Chocolate Box :::


We received a box of chocolates from the neighbours and I kept the box as it was so pretty I didn't want to throw it away.

Don't you think it looks nice on the wall?

::: Button Box :::

 
I recently received my Grandmother's button box.

 
I used to sit in her house when I was small and sort them into colours or styles, I'd happily sit there for hours.


Now I can add them to my collection of buttons and perhaps my Grandchildren will play with them too.
