The best laid plans...

When I suggested to DH last night that we should "go a run in the car" on Sunday, he seemed quite enthusiastic, so I decided not to blog last night, in case I had some stunning pictures by the end of today.
Well, this morning I find that he would like a run to Glasgow Green (10 mins away) so he has plenty of time to marinate his fajitas.
I will not moan as I will get the good of the fajitas, instead I have taken a picture from the archive. This is our friend Roddy with Jonathan at the top of Doach Wood, near Castle Douglas. I am behind the camera.

The views are out towards Balcary Bay and Hestan Island on the Solway Firth. (You may have heard in the news this week that more cockle pickers ran into difficulty with the tides on this stretch this week.)
J used to have cottages to rent over at Balcary Bay, and his mum still lives nearby. In fact, d'ya wanna buy a cottage? He'll be putting the last one on the market this spring.

Had a great night out with some knitting friends on Friday night. Was treated to a look at Jill's beautiful engagement ring, fondled Theresa's KSH jumper, heard all about the wedding Heather had done all the sewing for, admired India's new hairdo and toe-up sock, and got to meet the well-travelled Irene for the first time. Hope it won't be too long till the next time, Irene!

In the meantime, enjoy scenes of Dumfries and Galloway.... :-)

(In knitting I am working away on my sleeves, and measuring, measuring, measuring.)

Enjoy the fajitas - and nice looking countryside so green with the rolling hills in the background.

Hi Kathleen

Now that I'm in here I'm sure I have added comments a long time ago on one of our last meetings. Anyway, it was great to see you and the other girls - I did injoy myself catching up. The night went by far to quickly. We should meet next on a Sat afternoon - we could hopefully make this in Stirling!

Take Care
