Up around 5am this morning. Tea as usual and today I had cuddles with Bailey…

while watching the Eneco Tour.

Then I got a bit sidetracked online looking at Outlander stuff :-).

Kevin and the girls had left for school and work. Eventually I decided I was hungry but not sure what I felt like eating, so I had a ciabatta roll with cheese & tomato. And more tea, of course.

There was more time watching Youtube.

I then had my shower and got organised to take the dogs on a walk. I’m still not up to the full walk, so we drive down to the lake…

and enjoy a slow 15min walk…

So nice to out in the sunshine and fresh air.

Afterwards I stop by the local supermarket to pick up a few supplies.

Then it’s back home to edit a vlog.

Before making a veggie burger sandwich for my lunch.

I then rewatched the first episode of Outlander.

Snuggled under a blanket as it had turned cool. Loved it just as much the second time around.

Afterwards I dug out my scrapbook album to check out my photos of Doune Castle, where some of Outlander is filmed. Only had 2 photos if you can believe that!!! You forget that when you had to pay to get your film printed you were very selective in what you photographed.

I picked up the girls from school at 3pm and spent the afternoon watching youtube. When Kevin got home he prepared the pups dinner.

And I put together a rather easy one for us.

Kevin & shared a quorn fillet and soy sausage.

Then it was time to settle down with a very cute puppy and watch some TV.

On Sunday we celebrated my Dad’s 70th Birthday with lunch at the Anchorage Restuarant in the Boat Harbour Hotel.

It’s been a long time family favourite and many, many special occasions have been celebrated here.

Not only is the food always fabulous, but so is the view – esp. on a lovely sunny day.

I had soup…

and cheese souffle (lovely but rather rich)…

There were  speeches. Unfortunately I wasn’t feeling that great, so Athena said some words on behalf of our family. This is Dad’s brother, my uncle Brian.

and Dad’s Uncle John…

We took the opportunity to take some family photos.

Granny was especially happy to get a photo with ALL of her current grandchildren (there are another 2 currently in progress :-)).

and Kevin couldn’t resist getting a photo of our two “specials” :-).

On the way home we stopped to admire the full moon rising over the lake…

and a lovely Winters sunset…
