It would take more than some old thunder storm to scare a mum. Though I can remember my aunt making me crawl under the table with her... Strange woman.

It's raining here, and I should be out hanging banners for the community market at the weekend, got drenched doing one, and there are 7 more to go. :(

Reverse weather strikes again! It's rather nice here just now - wont last though, never does, but a change from the usual high winds and horizontal rain.

I hope Selkie doesn't mind if I post the photos I took of Shetland when I visited her a few years ago. It is a very beautiful place indeed. Photos. :D

This is a picture of the roof of Selkie's house taken from the loch behind it.

Oooooooooh! I remember those pics. Thank you for reposting them.

Selkie you are living my dream. If only it wasn't so cold! :lol: I went overseas (the big one) when I was younger with the sole aim to be to go to Scotland. I got there and it was more than I ever imagined, but I got so very ill that most of that part of my trip was spent tucked up in bed in someones attic bedroom as the days sped by and I never GOT to the islands. :(

My greatest regret of my whole trip. Who knows... maybe one day and I will pop in for a cuppa. :D

There's nowhere to run... :twisted: nowhere to hide... :twisted: she lives on an island!!!!

Why do I have a sudden impression of Selkie in her oilskins and hat madly rowing out to sea in a massive sou'wester????

Whats so strange about that??????? :lol: :lol:

I get scared. In the really big storms. Try not to show it to the girls though. This is the least "Brissy Stormworthy" house we have even been in. I have always been in solid brick slab homes since I have lived here and through these storms. (Bungalows?) This one is a highset on stilts. It MOVES. I can imagine my tin roof ending up in the next street.

Wish I DID have stairs to hide under Dots.

Not in the hutch?

It smells like pee :oops: Plus, he makes it quite clear that it's his space, I'm allowed in to clean whilst he eats his dinner and that's it! :lol:

Its okay Dotsie.... we will still love you.... it happens to alot of ladies as they get older.... a few animals here and there... cats mostly but I am sure there are "bunny ladies" too.... suddenly they start referring to the living room or the dining room as "their room"... a faint little whiff in the room... they start collecting a few newspapers (for the bedding) and one their friends come over for a cuppa and the hallway is lined to the ceiling with rows five deep of old newspapers (for the bedding!).. and the second reception room has been roped off "because they needed a little bit more room to play after I got Jeremy...and there is Lulubelle, and Stanley and Rebecca and Sniffy and Mr Plodderpot and William and Snookies and Boo Boo and Aristotle and Thumpy and Wumpy and Bert and Sharon (I named her after you!) and Mr Socks and Benjamin... Benjamin!!!! Get DOWN and out of the china cabinet you naughty naughty bunny you!.. oh and theres Speckles and Wilomina and Albert."

Well....it's stopped raining here for a bit. Clear sky and a drop in temperature to go with it. 7C this morning. How long until the first frost?

I must've imagined I posted a comment about the weather. Del, we had a massive storm yesterday pm as well, big wind, lots of mad lightening, cats & dogs rain. There's another one brewing as I type. I've got the doors & windows still open and there's that beautiful rain smell whooshing through the house. I love storms, not scary at all.
