After the Storm

I’ve called this post ‘After the Storm’, and it technically was after the storm when these photos were taken – it just didn’t really feel like it. 

In fact, quite what prompted me to wear such a full skirt on such a windy day, I will never know. Probably the same thing that ALWAYS prompts me to do that, though: sheer stupidity, combined with the fact that windy days are the only kind we seem to get now, so if I don’t wear my full skirts on windy days, I wouldn’t get to wear them at all. Which would be a shame, because it’s not like I have many other types of clothes, is it?

Now, I know I talk a lot about the weather on this blog, and I even annoy myself with it sometimes. Seriously, it’s just weather, Amber! Why can’t you seem to get over the fact that weather exists?! The thing is, though, if you were in the UK this weekend, YOU’VE probably been talking about the weather too, because WOW, that was one hell of a storm. It came after a full week of non-stop rain, and with many places already flooded because of it, MORE rain was the very last thing we needed. Or more wind, for that matter.

We were very lucky not to be affected by it personally, but the flood waters caused  a huge amount of damage in parts of England, and it’s been pretty miserable everywhere, from what I can gather. By Sunday morning, I was starting to get a serious case of cabin fever, and although I still have a lingering cold (which I’ve now passed on to Terry: sorry, Terry!), when I saw the blue sky peek out from behind the clouds for the first time in days, I couldn’t get out of the door fast enough…

This outfit is very much a “no-brainer” for me (Because all of my other outfits are so well thought-out, you know?): you can’t go wrong with a full skirt and a trusty polo neck, and I’ll take any excuse to wear my new boots right now, too, so it was a really easy one to throw together on a day when I didn’t really feel up to much. Is it almost spring yet?

    I talk about the weather way too much too – but sometimes it’s just all you can do. I wasn’t even near the storm, and yet I’ve been talking at length about the fact the weather was not stormy. Those are some amazing boots, by the way. (Cos when you’re not talking about weather, you should be talking about clothes, right?)

I took this photo on the little tram that takes you from the Magic Kingdom car park to the transportation centre: I’d give pretty much anything to be back there on this rainy Monday morning ...👪

Currently inhaling my third coffee of the morning: I’ve been averaging about 6 hours sleep per night this week, thanks to a certain someone deciding that sleep is for the weak, and that he’ll just be getting up two hours earlier than usual 🤦‍♀️ Really hoping it’s just a phase: while it’s going on, I’m not fit to be seen, though, so here’s a photo from our visit to the beautiful Drummond Castle Gardens last week - such a beautiful place! 🏰 .

AD | So sad to be checking out of @highlandheatherlodges this morning: we’ve had such an amazing time here - it’s a beautiful place, with so much to do nearby, that we’ve really only scratched the surface: although that *could* be something to do with all the time we spent in the hot tub, obviously 😉 Thanks for having us, guys - we’ll definitely be back!

AD | We’re spending a few days at @highlandheatherlodges in beautiful Perthshire, for what Terry is optimistically referring to as his ‘birthday week’. (I say ‘optimistically’ - we’re only here for three days, and his birthday was yesterday, but don’t stop believing, Terry!)⁣
⁣
There’s a hot tub for us and a playpark for Max, so needless to say, we’re having a fantastic time, and I’m already dreading having to leave. Today’s big question: can I pass as an under-12, so I qualify for a pony ride at the nearby wildlife centre? 🤔 (On second thoughts, don’t answer that one...)⁣
