Now you wouldn't be far wrong if you thought I was talking about the weather. Talking about the weather is one of the most popular past-times in Scotland. And to be perfectly honest there has been plenty of weather to talk about. Since the schools broke up for the holidays at the end of July we have had everything, everyday apart from snow ( maybe shouldn't have said that..)
However, what I was really questioning was how we have reached the second week of August without really noticing. My youngest daughter goes back to school next week and I am amazed at how quickly six and a half weeks have gone by.
That kind of explains my lack of blogging recently. I was distracted by STUFF. Days out, shopping for new school uniform, weather beaten holidays, cinema trips....by the way I loved Toy Story 3 in 3D. Have also been catching up on some reading. Nothing high-brow or intellectual, just fun reading. If you like gritty thrillers I would seriously recommend Lisa Gardner. Real page turners. If you like something a little sillier, I would suggest Agatha Raisin books by M C Beaton. Agatha Raisin is a 53yr old nosey parker who keeps stumbling upon murders and kind of accidently solves the crime. She's not exactly Miss Marple but she has amused me this summer.
Oh and my lovely little net book came back from net book hospital and is as good as ever. Not too expensive to repair but I did need a new keyboard.... so I am now keeping my tea at a very safe distance.
Normal blogging will resume any time soon.. so much to do.. so little time.
