I've never before seen such a configuration of concentric rings in the clouds:
We're on our way up to Scotland for our holidays, and were bombing up the motorway at 70mph when I noticed the sky - so this photo was taken at high speed by leaning out of the window and hoping for gaps in the trees (I wasn't driving, obviously. I can't drive.)
We stopped off last night at my dad's house, which is on the way north, and just before bed, my husband said he wanted to have a shower. Okay, I said, but I'd like to clean my teeth first; we'd arrived late, I didn't want to have to wait up while he showered.
As I was digging through my bag looking for my toothbrush, I had a sudden thought.
I got up straight away and went into the bathroom, and looked over the bath. I was right: no shower.
I went back and told Andy. "There's a shower in my dad's en suite, do you want me to ask him?"
He walked back through to the bathroom with me.
I was wrong after all.
There is a shower, it's just in a separate cubicle on the other side of the room, so I'd somehow failed to see it when I went through to check.
(In my defence, although I have been here more times than my husband has, it isn't the house where I grew up - and I'm more of a bath girl, myself.... No, those aren't very good excuses really, are they?!)
Speaking of clouds, today I bought a polarising filter for my camera, and I've borrowed a UV filter from my dad. So I may have some interesting and experimental photos to show you later.
Posts may be a bit more irregular than usual over the next few days, I don't really know how much wifi we'll find in the wilds of Scotland. We'll see.
