Frolics in the Rain.


                                            I EXPECT I SHALL FEEL BETTER AFTER TEA. 

Recently we decided on a Day out to Lunderston Bay dressed in our best sailor and tennis dresses in the company of Paddy the huge Irish Wolfhound. Of course this being the Scottish summer meant out predictable weather did not play ball and the torrential rain threatened to dampen our day ever so slightly. 

We did our best to avoid the puddles but failed miserably resulting in mucky splashes all over our fine white stockings. 

Paddy brightened our day and he loved giving us an extra shower every so often when without warning he would shake his sodden shaggy fur coat in our direction. Fun and frolics in the monsoon rain!! With some of our dignity in tact, we headed back home for an afternoon of light reading, tea and cake. 

PJ Wodehouse beckoned with Blandings and Jeeves and Wooster ending our wet afternoon with a smile. We think Paddy was by far the star of the show!

Thank you for taking the time to read our blog. We hope you enjoyed it. As always we would love to hear what you think.
