A bit of introductory background for the new people.
I have three daughters who feature on the blog and two sons who choose not to.
DD1 has five children, Fifi is 16, Bob is 12, Minky and Dinky the boy/girl twins are 5 and Spud will be 3 in March. She lives just round the corner.
DD2 lives approx 120 miles away, she has Ziggy who was 2 in August, and her due date for child No2 is today.
DD3, Auntie H, has no children and lives with Uncle M approx 15 miles away.
We have one rescue dog, Dixie, we have had her a year this month and she is settling in really well.
When I am not working, babysitting or dog walking I enjoy cross stitching, crochet, quilting and applique as well as adult colouring, geocaching and of course my blog. .
This is the black bun....nothing else to share.....
wiki tells you
Black bun is a type of fruit cake completely covered with pastry. It is Scottish in origin, originally eaten on Twelfth Night but now enjoyed at Hogmanay. The cake mixture typically contains raisins, currants, almonds, citrus peel, allspice, ginger, cinnamon and black pepper. It had originally been introduced following the return of Mary, Queen of Scots from France, but its original use at Twelfth Night ended with the Scottish Reformation. It was subsequently used for first-footing over Hogmanay
A walk round the fishery and Dixie decided to climb up the pile of old tarmac.
Was a lovely day so we went to watch the Polar Plunge at Irvine. Don't suppose it felt quite so warm when coming out of the sea soaking wet.
Did a blog post on it here.
A walk in the woods for today.
Ziggy, DD2 and SIL2 are down. Ziggy and DD2 are here to stay until baby is born. SIL2 goes back to work on Monday and will need to get phoned when daughter goes into labour.
Ziggy and Dixie are rather fond of each other and here they are snuggled together watching Granddad draw on Ziggy's etch a sketch
The whirlwind that is Ziggy is here!! None stop noise when she is awake, but she slept all night so cannot really complain.
Hubby Dixie and I went and did 3.5 miles up at Failford.
Here is Ziggy using her daddies phone to take some pictures.
Out to work before Ziggy got up and back in after she went to bed. So decided to do a fall back picture of a sleeping child, not something I get to do very often.
