Project 365 week 35

Sunday

Far too hot a day to be alive just cant stand this heat, the only saving grace at work was a breeze.

                                                            the temperature according to the car


Monday

We decided to re-home the girls, so here they are having a dust bath in the potatoes before they got picked up

Tuesday

Adding extra calcium to the diet is easy with a jelly made with coconut milk with cooked raspberries in, served with a puréed fruit sauce and a few extra raspberries added for the photo.

Wednesday

Bob had phoned while I was out wanting to know if he could come and stay for the night so on the way back home I picked him up. We went out to add a tracker to a cache, had some fun along the river and avoided some Zombies on the way back to the car.

Thursday

Have been doing holiday relief cover this week for a complex where the usual woman is on holiday, so this was the only day off I have this week. So we had planned a route to go and look at some cars we wanted to test drive. So rather than take our car we took the train. Managed to get one that we will pick up next Wednesday once they have changed the cam belt and put a full years MOT on it for me. Believe me this one is from a garage. The old couple of the car I bought the other week have phoned for the documents back so they can resell the dodgy car!!



it rained all the way to Glasgow


Friday

Hubby had the car to run down to a friends house while I was at work, so when he picked me up we went for a walk along the pier in Ayr. Seems weird seeing it with a fence all the way round as there has not been one there previously. The wind was strong, though the weather was warm, driving the waves onto the rocks. 
When we reached the corner on the way back the wind started sandblasting us in the face, so hubbys pal R started walking backwards, but he managed to walk into a large puddle and nearly fell over the bonnet of a park car. The woman in the car and I both tried not to laugh at him.

Saturday

The other week hubby had managed to break the vase we have on the coffee table with the cord of the hoover, so we picked up a replacement. This one actually goes better than the last one, and a great bargain from a charity shop.

So this week has been a lot better than last week, and have to say glad we have got the car issue sorted, we have a thirty day guarantee on it so that gives us peace of mind.

  1. I love the photo of the water on the rocks, there is something so relaxing about the sea. It has been really warm and muggy this week here too. Hope the chickens are happy in their new home.

  2. What a relief about your car! Love the photo of the waves on the rocks and laughed at the story of your hubby's friend landing on the bonnet. Your new vase is very nice, even better that it was a bargain!

  5. The water and waves at Ayr look invigorating. We rehomed our chooks earlier this year - best thing we did! I miss their eggs but I have my garden back x

    1. Yes we were finding it was not working out in the garden, may get some back in a year or two once the garden is sorted the way we want it

  6. Here's hoping for some good luck with the car. Can't believe they're going to try to resell it, can trading standards get involved with an individual? Heat????? It's not even that cold with the air con on here, it's struggling to get the temp inside down to 27c at the moment. The jelly looks divine and I love the vase

    1. no trading standards cannot do anything, neither will the police I have spoken to them both.

  10. Beautiful sea view. Wishing you good luck with the car. It was the same here weather-wise, one day stifling hot, another - pouring all day long. Hope your chickens don't miss your garden.

  14. Glad to hear you've got the car situation sorted out. It's been in the 30's here this week, unbearable for the kids being back at school with no AC!
