The mixed weather continues - snow sprinkled on the tops of the Hoy hills, whilst the sun sparkles and the wind abaits - the lighthouse on Graemsay is reflected in the mill pond - what a gorgeous start to the day. The Norweigan birthday cheese forager has popped up for the weekend to help us celebrate.
I love pictures with reflections and shadows in them - look he's genuinely here. Not a figment of my rather over active imagination. Mr Flowers lives and is being chased by chooks running up the track. I suspect they are after the cheese. Fear not my Norweigan goodies, you are safe and in the fridge - no chooks shall munch on you at all.
I like a walk up the track before breakfast - cup of tea in hand normally - pj's wellies, fleece, hat and several layers normally but not today - today its a fleeceless, hatless, gloveless walk. Its actually warm. I may need to lie down. The hoonds are firm chums and dander up the track with us Haggis following in Peedies every footstep. Nice to see them getting along.
Later, the fun will begin - Haggis was an early birthday present - a bit like the Norvwiegan cheese - both unwrapped thankfully - can you imagine trying to wrap up a wriggly puppy, that will be fun! Goodluck with that Mr F. As I've already ramsacked all birthday post prior to my actual birthday - I know I'm thoroughly spoiled already! Including the Llama crackers sent through the post by a chum - they were yummy - all gone!
|Llama crackers - a very silly tasty snack! Thank you Jane and Sadie postively silly and wonderful all wrapped into one tasty snack!|
I also have an accidental present from the birthday book faeries whco also left me a pressie in my bag - now wasn't that kind......I really shouldn't have should I? It really caught my eye in the local bookshop so it just jumped into my bag - honest!
Tomorrow on my birthday proper we're going to The Creel in St Margarets Hope for a meal - now that will be very yummy indeed! Thank you Mr F!
