I had a busy day working, while also trying to help BB find a volunteering opportunity for his Duke of Edinburgh. Luckily my spirits were raised as the weather brightened up for the first time in days. We had some blue sky and a little bit of sunshine. I made the most of it and had a quick walk along the road and back again at lunchtime.
I cooked tea, fed the boys (and myself) and then headed out for a walk – I went on the route of the deer incident of a few weeks ago. The first time I have been round there in an evening, since that night. I was pleased not to see any deer. As I gained height, I could see the haar coming up the Tyne and when I got to a point where I could see the Forth – I couldn’t see the Forth for the bank of haar. In the distance I could see the very very top of a Lomond Hill and looking towards Edinburgh I could see the top of Arthur’s Seat above the haar. We were lucky to still have a wee bit of sunshine.
