We’ve been having seriously good weather for ducks. Glasgow had well over half its monthly average monthly rainfall in less than 24 hours, and don’t forget that in the west of Scotland we already get plenty of the wet stuff. Stirling was even worse.
I drove through a great big puddle too fast and gubbed the electrics, so we broke down just after we turned onto the M8 on the way home. This was taken with HD’s phone, and is of the car while we waited for the man from the RAC to rescue us. Of course by the time he came the car started, but he dried it out and sprayed it with industrial amounts of WD40 and it got us home OK.
I liked the morning sky colour here.
This clematis is by our front door. It’s going to look lovely in the summer.
This (very zoomed) view is not far from our house. As you can see the hills got a dusting of snow.
Confession: I totally forgot to take a picture on the 24th, so I took a picture of white nothing on the 25th. Whoops!
These carnations are left over from the bouquet I got from my colleagues (see previous photo) (actually they’re still alive a week later on the 30th too!).
I had an interview in the afternoon for a reduced-hours health visiting job, I didn’t get it (though they said I interviewed well), but it did give me the chance to hang around Queen’s Park before it got dark while waiting for HD to finish work. I tried lots of close-ups of the swans, got quite a few pictures I liked. This one had just had its head in the water, hence the dripping.
The best thing about moving house! 🙂
This is our local parish church (which coincidentally has the same name as our church in Glasgow).
This is the best takeaway we’ve had yet here (the Indian and Chinese have been a bit disappointing).
