Normally a hard day to get inspiration for a photograph, but with it being Mother's Day this made it easy. Though I have to say I was in shock when Daughter No 2 who is notorious for cards/postcards/pressies etc being a week of two late, you always get them but not usually on time. On Saturday her card turned up and I got a lovely mug from the grandchildren that D No1 had made, it is black until you add hot water and then the pictures come out. One big pic of the grandchildren and lots of small ones.

This year the plans for the garden involve moving sheds and things to where we want them to be, relocating the chickens to the bottom of the garden and moving the table and benches up to the top. Stage one of this is painting the fence to move the chickens into the corner.

Not a lot going on today, but I did make a carrot cake and a lemon drizzle cake. The carrot cake was lovely, the lemon drizzle was lacking something but was ok with custard.

We popped across to Stirling today to visit a friend. Decided to do some of the newish geocaches while we were in the area. One of the ones we went to find we had no luck with, but we wandered off to find a couple of others and came across this waterfall. Looked very pretty in the sun.

Bob had a hospital appointment this afternoon and to save daughter having to take the gruesome twosome with her I volunteered to babysit as SIL is back at work this week. We had lots of fun playing games and reading books, Fifi came in from school and we had even more fun.

Next door bought a puppy just before Christmas, and she is a cute bundle of fluff. She comes out into the garden and comes to the fence to have a wee woof, and then runs away again.

Daughter No2 and future son in law came down last night. Daughter and I have spent the day buying everything I need to go with my dress for my Mother of the Bride outfit. Future SIL is away today to sort out the kilt hires, pick up the rings and visit his mum and dad.
Here they are writing out some of the invitations.
