AFTER breakfast in the garden Margaret drops me at Martyn’s to pick the ‘Dave Arcari’ snoods he picked up from Kenny yesterday.
I help him move a big steel cupboard and a safe form his van down the garden studio, chat a while then walk back home in the sunshine.
Catriona, Freya and Aaron have arrived when I get back and we spend a while sitting in the garden chatting then I have a sandwich and take some snaps of Freya playing in the water. Margaret got hold of some kind of contraption like a big rubber ring with holes in that attaches to the hose…looks like fun for kids!
I go to the studio and select some of the photos and get a wee bit of work done before dozing on the couch while Freya watches stuff on her iPad.
Once the kids are settled I crack open a beer and start making Bo Kho (a Vietnamese beef dish) for dinner – a special request from Catriona…we eat, chat, enjoy a glass of wine and have an early-ish night.
