It was a warm day but a bit hazy.
Here we are: Mr Life, Son with my mum and in front of them, Son's girlfriend, Daughter 2's actor boyfriend and Daughter 2. You'll notice I'm quite happy to post pictures of people's bottoms as long as mine isn't included.
This is the view to the left.
I would like this house. Do you think if I wish hard enough, some good fairy will give it to me?
This is that house's view.
Along a bit, we sat on a bench while Daughter 2 and her actor boyfriend went for a paddle. The tide was far out.
Then Son and his girlfriend followed.
On our way back the sun came out, which improves any photo.
Back in the garden, we noticed swallows* building a nest in the apex of the roof. That blurry thing with a forked tail just above...................here............... is one of the swallows. My camera isn't really up to action shots.
Daughter 2 and Son were having a chat and posed for a photo.
"How about one without the discarded socks?" suggested Son. Ok then.
I wandered off round the garden to take photos of the view.
And again. As usual, I wondered why I live in a city.
"Let's have a rolling race down the hill," suggested Son to his sister. He's never one to lie around for long.
So they did, giggling hysterically.
And raced back up again. Son went sideways by mistake because he was dizzy.
Later, we had dinner at Kippford, on the other side of the bay.
In August they move to Glasgow to work in hospitals there. When will I ever get used to him not being with us any more?
* My brother says he thinks they're house martins, not swallows. I could look this up on Google but it's TOO HOT!
