Month Two

This morning we did some recce* on another PO, this one near Earthy (yay!), where we went the messages** for tonight’s supper. Suffice to say these were pretty basic items; our at-home cooking is about as fancy as our at-home pants*** (and by pants, we mean trousers, otherwise we’d be fancy, indeed!).

Here are some photies from this morning, including the one in the header. We haven’t needed any thistle-removing yet. But we have only been here one month.

We <heart> Bio Cotton message spotted outside Earthy (shocker).

Find the heron in this one? That’s H-E-R-O-N.

No one we know would find this funny.

Allotments (garden plots) in the neighbo(u)rhood.

Wee house. Very wee.

After lunch, it was a hillaversary climb up Calton; today’s the first day of the rest of…blah, blah, blah.

And this evening we expect to thoroughly enjoy the Edinburgh Quartet perform at The Queen’s Hall.
