Project 365 - 2nd March - 8th March 2014

Well we have had some drier weather this week, but also had a few days of really really heavy rain, not to mention an afternoon of snow on Friday. Not managed to get out with the grandchildren, but keep hoping too, this weather has to improve some time surely?


Sunday

This was 7.15 am this morning. I could see it reflecting on the house across the way and thought it looked very pretty. Not had much of this round here this year, makes a pleasant change from the rain.








Monday

Daughter came round with the three wee ones earlier. Minky was not for settling so she came round for a break from the crying. He would not stop crying for Granddad either, but we did get lots of smiles from Dinky.

Tuesday

Loved this nice blanket of crocus's in the sunshine. Another cold sunny day.








Wednesday

Our monthly visit has now moved to the east coast of Scotland. We had a bit of time to kill so went to Gartmorn Dam for a walk. These swans were very friendly and all came out of the pond to see what we had to eat. They came right up to me shoving their faces in the camera. These two were doing a mating dance.
It will be a nice walk round the pond with interesting things to see in nicer weather.

Thursday

The weather here has been awful. Gales,sleet, hail and rain most of the week and so instead of taking the children out we had an afternoon on the wii fit. They had a ball and spent a lot of the evening in fits of laughter. Not sure Bob was quite heavy enough as some of the games did not work too well for him.







Friday

Had the car in the garage today so had time to walk along the beach. Stopped in to visit a friend as well and took this from her top floor flat. I loved the look. The wind was that strong and the waves that big they were churning up the sand from the bottom of the sea creating an amazing line of brown sandy water and then the blue sea behind it, it was almost as if somebody had painted the brown on a picture.





Saturday

I treated myself to a new phone last week, this is the case I bought to protect it. I loved the colours and the pattern.
