Sunsets and Sundogs

So lockdown continues to be pretty brutal on the weight gain front, nothing for it but to try and snack less and move more, though that is not much of a chore when this is basically the garden.  I stood in the queue to get into Tescos yesterday and noticed that everyone else was a little more squashed into their jeans and we are all now showing hints of our natural hair colour.  This week I've been out of the Coronavirus loop, less internet, less TV and living in the Borders means we can believe that life is almost normal, however the UK death rate has officially gone over twenty thousand (and in reality, that will be much much higher) and Donald Trump is muttering about injecting patients with disinfectant...  In other news, sign wars in Melrose is very positive today!

Plenty of scope!

Chamfron Milano is currently with Jodie Amos equestrian and will be offered for sale after lockdown.  Looking super athletic!

Melrose and Leaderfoot Viaduct

Lockdown walk around Melrose and the Leaderfoot Viaduct just before sunset.  I think that sign was a replacement for a bin related rant so I am hopeful that this will continue to be an ongoing amusement as I stroll into town.

Paloma - 8yo

Paloma was eight years old yesterday and got a hand made birthday cake.  I can't help but feel the Chamfron ponies are having better birthdays during lockdown than the rest of us!


So you can move during lockdown but you can't take up any of the offers of help you were given so it was a two man, slightly small van job but we got it done with only my hugely heavy but keen to warp and twist wardrobes abandoned.  The tenant in the new house had left it absolutely immaculate and the weather was perfect, so I am now about 90% in.  Biggest excitement was a new mattress, I now sleep fabulously well with Emma.  The freestanding larder isn't quite what I was planning but it will do for the moment!

New House!

After viewing it for five minutes three months ago (you spend longer choosing jeans right?) it was good to see it again and still like it!
