Good Evening, it seem ages since I put pen to paper or should I say fingers to keys and wrote something in my main journal. It has been a busy week for us all our dental appointments and hair appointments have come together and also a full day looking after our seven year old grand daughter on the last day of her summer holidays she had from school. This week has also seen us out for lunch and dinner different days but that in itself is quite an occasion as you know we don’t go out a great deal to eat, its just the way things have worked out. Last Friday Stuart wanted to treat me to lunch out in a lovely restaurant in Perth then when we came home he rushed around to cut the grass and then to do the edging before we had more rain and in the process suffered for it all weekend he will overdo things even though he knows he should take things easy but with the weather being as it has been I could see his point but it was not worth it. He is fine again now but I hate to see him so tired and listless. On Tuesday night we were out again it was Stuarts Art Groups dinner out, were at an Italian restaurant, there was seventeen of us and we had a great evening. We now have a wedding to go to and then that should be the end of our gallivanting for a while I hope, I do like the quiet life.

The weather has improved somewhat the last few days have been rain free for the last days in august and today has been really warm and sultry I am sitting out in the garden doing this entry in word an will transfer in later this evening. I have some pictures to show you and will download my camera after tea.

From the pictures you will see that at last we have some butterflies in the garden on the Buddleia we have Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, and Peacock not forgetting the three kind of white butterflies. We were getting worried that we were not going to have any at all this year as they have just appeared this week and are very late indeed I think they must have been waiting for the rain to stop.  I think that's about it for today off next week to Skye hope the weather is clear not expecting miracles. Will try to update before we go.  Till next time.      Love,

                               There is a new entry in my book journal ................

Sounds like you have had a very busy week Joan!  What lovely pictures of your grand-daughter and the butterflies.  We don't seem to see as many butterflies anymore!  I do hope that you have lovely and dry weather for your upcoming trip to Skye!
