I'll be ok doc - plenty of hills to go up. I can live in  a hut somewhere and burn peat as Jimmmy says

Don't think there's much milk, so no fat, in the red stuff - that's probably the issue! It looked manky

Where did you get those pix of me fidget - and my house! 

The fairy sculptures are amazing. I know you've posted some before, but you can never have too much of a good thing 

Love that second one from Trebah and, like Lorna, I think that fern is stunning 

Thanks Lorna - clouds feature heavily in hillwalking pix 

That one is Ben Lomond - I have a lot of pix of it at different times of year andfrom different angles. The one in the previous set is the summit of Stob Ghabar in Glen Etive taken from my walk on Sunday in Bridge of Orchy. The Etive hills were in cloud all day, whereas the Tyndrum hills (in the pic with the lochan) and the Orchy ones were clear.

That photo of the building you posted is beautiful. Whereabouts is that?

Lyn - I only post pix of the best bits too - that's why I never show the cr***y bit behind/beside the shed  

I'm sure I've tried to freeze milk before and it didn't work - perhaps the skinny milk isn't suitable? Does anyone know? Dove?  

Hosta - I'm sure your hols will be top of 'Big Shiny Faced' Dave's list 

Batteries not charged - tut tut - should have been better prepared ...

I heard earlier that people about to go on holiday were being offered full refunds.

It's turned into a vile sort of night here....ho hum

I know what you mean Hosta. It's the sun that attracts people. I would only go back for the 'art' aspect, the heat doesn't do anything for me.  Sadly, the economy's humped without tourists wanting the heat especially at this time of year 

Looking forward to your pix

They can survive outdoors up here. It's wet cold they don't like, so keeping them sheltered from the worst of that is the ideal. Many plants are the same - dry cold is better, and easier to deal with, than wet cold

'daft wee lassie' works terribly well in all kinds of situations...

Didn't think you had any wrinkles Verdi 

fidget - they're such shysters -  don't know if that's the correct spelling, but it's more polite than the term I'd normally use 

I think Sharm's  a s***hole. Sorry - just my opinion. Couldn't pay me enough to go back. 

Man made fairies    No, no, no - we're real  

No milk in my house is a hanging offence Hosta. Have you tried keeping one or two of those cartons of long life stuff? I only use the red stuff but that's handy if you're ever stuck. I'd water it down as it's too sickly for my tea - fine for  porridge though

It'll get better Panda.  It's nearly the weekend 

I'm sure my kitchen floor needs more than  a mop DD. Not convinced the steamer's much good either 

Off to work for me now. I'll catch you all later
