Blossom on aqua car



People watched me suspiciously as I hovered aroung this aqua car with the wet pink blossom on it, fumbling for my camera but trying not to get run over by cars (there was no pavement).

Not been on the computer all day, until now. I went into Edinburgh to scour the charity shops for a suitable gift for MrP's birthday (not much joy but I have a plan). I did pick up some nice buttons which I will photograph sometime soon. But not now, today has been the 1st time I've not wanted/needed to blog. I've been off the computer all day, busy in town, bus in the garden, busy sorting out the house.


A lot of busyness but a really good day, particularly as it had some great visual stimulation, these cow sculptures are all over Edinburgh and have all been painted differently. I'm sure there is a link on the web but I'm too tired to search. Just been informed on comments that these cows are travelling cows! They've been all over. Also, I forgot to point out, if it's not clear, that this one has the world map painted on her...



And this is beside my bustop when I wait to go home, Edinburgh has lovely details like this around every corner in the centre of town...



I may not blog much, or at all, over the next few days. Taking advantage of my urges to organise the house etc. Plus it's MrP's birthday at the weekend and we'll visit his mum and help her with her new house and garden. It's all houses, gardens and food for the next few days. If I don't post, then I wish you all a nice weekend, and hopefully some great weather. And an especially big hello to a certain cat cuddler who made something very sweet to do with me (is it a secret, if not I'll blog it next week).

We loved finding all the exhibits when the Cow Parade was in Manchester.There were some great ones and some that were a little strange!The girls wanted one for our back garden:)

I love this blog - you notice the things I wish people noticed too. It's also brilliant to read about E'burgh as it's a brilliant city (all my mates live there). I wish you all the fabulous creativity in the world, and to spot more of the lovely, lovely cows.
