What a difference a day makes

Yesterday we were covered in snow.

And it made everything look beautiful and clean, even BeAnne.  She loves snow and happily snowploughs her way through.

Wussums surprised me by coming out with us too.  I didn’t have him down for an all-weather kinda guy but he enjoyed himself and definitely wants to be part of our strange little family.

All exercise is good exercise and I hope he will lose some of his “widge”.  He went for miles with us on the old-dog walk which is specifically for my old lurcher who is finding life tough now.

The sky was beautiful with hints of blue and large masses of cloud.

Once home, we kissed some little noseys and I put the old dogs back in the house.

BeAnne and I set off for our “proper” walk to Watsness gate and back.  I need to keep walking and I am actually beginning to enjoy myself. I see it more as a routine rather than a chore.

So this is yesterday….

The huge expanses of sky and the light change all the time and that makes Shetland magical.

So When folk ask me, what do you see in Shetland?  Here is my answer.

Even on the mundane daily dog/horse/physio (delete where applicable) walk, this is the most special place on earth.

The Donald has melted now and the mud is back.  Ho hum.

But the good news is that we have a bale.
