Pictures from a wild weekend (well, not really).

I spent the weekend with my best friend and our two husbands, in rural Aberdeenshire. We were helping prepare for a new kitchen to be fitted. As usual, these things always take longer than you estimate, and we didn’t get back home until late Sunday evening. So I’m starting Monday a bit behind and flustered, trying to catch up with shopping/washing/blogging.

We did have a fun time in spite of it being a ‘working’ weekend. The friend in question is the one who breeds Bengal and British Shorthair cats. Warning: cat picture alert! She also has horses, a dog, and many ducks and hens. Here’s a little picture story of the weekend:

Don’t think much of this hotel. The bed seems to be overrun with cats!

We woke up to snow on Saturday morning. Horses still had to be fed and dog walked.

The boys worked on the kitchen – well, most of the time. Hubby got his mouth taped shut for giving us ladies cheek.

Best mate’s hubby decided to teach Bean the Dalmation how to dance.

But somehow the work still got done! (Note the shiny new range oven in the background of the above pic).

Next day dawned – and the snow was all gone.

The boys did some more work while me and bestest buddy looked after played with cats. πŸ˜‰ Here’s a selection of the Bengals (and one British Shorthair who wanted to be in the pictures too).

So that was my weekend. Now I must really get some housework and coursework done. You might get a more sensible blog post next time. Then again, you might not! πŸ˜‰

  1. Karen, you totally rock feministic power getting a full 10 points from the American-Irish Judges on male domination!! lol πŸ˜€ A woman who knows how to put tape to good use. Lovin’ the kitty-pics as we are big cat lovers at Two Voices One Thought & have an orange tabby that’s got more personality than one cat deserves displaying all nine lives in the one feisty, male feline altar ego known as…PEACHY!! We also love horses & when Inion was young was able to spend a lot of time with them as my brother-n-law & sister-n-law raised Passo’s & lived next door to us on a farm. Haven’t had much to do with them since but they’re such amazing creatures. Have to say we’re jealous of the snow as we’ve been waiting on a good fall since November but have yet to get anything. They’re calling for two to three inches Wednesday night so we’re crossing our fingers. Love the post & sharing now!! πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks ladies! Yes, that tape was off the new oven, and came in very handy… πŸ˜‰
      We’ve had surprisingly little snow in Scotland so far, even in Aberdeenshire where my friend lives. Just constant RAIN – aarrgh!
      Love your description of Peachy – he sounds like a real character! Thanks for sharing my post. xx
