Our past seven days, a walk again through the last week - see the link below for how you can join in with Jacqui at the Barefoot Crofter... A week full of adventuring - we began with lunchtime - between work walks on beaches covered in seaweed...............beside the office at home.
Trying not to fall over squishy rocks and seaweed, loving the colour.........autumn colour under my feet? I've been looking in the wrong place!
Trying to keep up with the dog, and failing!
And remembering to breathe - slow down and take stock of life........I've got a new job, I'm now ending an old one, and beginning a whole new chapter in my life. And I know I'm needing to take time to look, to think and breathe! I want to make a real great go at the new job and enjoy a good balance of life too!
Inbetween thinking and breathing, cooking for visitors and finding unexpected 'B's in home made pancakes ......... can you see it too?
Hopping on airplanes to get to Glasgow 350 miles from home, for family adventures..............
Finding autumn colour in airport carparks..............
Gawping at bridges, river, traffic and trees and autumn colour all the things I can't see at home!
Charging towards botanic garden Kibble Palace glasshouses at speed - desperate to get in there and see tree ferns!
Meeting squirrels with unknown names...... I don't know any squirrels names at Glasgow botanics, (but I ensure the children I know them all in Edinburgh at that botanic garden, my old home)! Don't tell them anything but that!
Popping into the national tree fern collection, oohing and ahhing, beautiful they are - well worth a look! (And free!)
Loving the purple of flowers in glasshouses which just don't seem real!
Meeting mice, who really don't seem to mind being photographed before they nip up a tree fern......
The fern crozier is something that always takes my breath away.......
Learning about tree ferns.........and how endangered they are.
Making up names for 'carnivorous' plants which make us giggle - this one is a 'doyouthinkhe'lleatus'
Fast food, unusual in our life - and chats and laughing and tasty snacks with chopsticks
Enjoying a bit of fast lane life - we managed cinema, eating and contemplated getting a bit of snow but had to get off to the concert! Maybe next time......
A night at Mr F's flat in Fife and finding raspberries in the garden overloaded with fruit - ready to pick and take for an adventure up north in the car.
Leaves scrunching below my feet........
Walking with giants in big tree country!
Admiring beech leaves in full flow
Watching my daughter contemplate life over a waterfall whilst no one was watching
Goggling more colour!
Finding the ideal house, for when we move to the mainland? Nice view, compact property.....running water.....!
Walking with toddlers in Moray, an overnight on the way home - finding new delights in dandielion clocks and releasing the 'faeries' which each head has held captive
Watching the sunset over the bridges up the A9 enroute to the ferry home -meandering home.
Home again, life back to normal, like making buns from neeps (swedish turnip) for a laugh with LinneW, just to see if we could - and making people guess the magic ingredient! (they all thought banana!) but they ate them all, until I told them what the magic ingredient was, that is! Then I got a bit of weird commenting from the family.
We've had a bit of a busy fun filled 7 days here - between walking and eating and laughing and adventures! I hope you're weeks been good too! Pop over the 'The Barefoot Crofter' if you want to see her last 7 days too!
Ps - Don't tell the dog we've been away, he's only just forgiven us! Wonder how your week ended up?
