Something I did most days on holiday was to sit outside a cafe with  a beer or coffee and take pictures of passing pups.  Hours of entertainment.  🙂

How about you?  Plans?


Spent last weekend with my best friend, Genna, hanging out at her beautiful, old, quirky, peaceful cottage in Insch, Aberdeenshire.  Next time I’ll blether less and snap more.  Maybe.

Potato Salad

Boil some waxy new potatoes (skin on or off, whatever you please) until perfectly cooked.  Cool.  Toss with a dressing of 3 parts olive oil, 1 part cider vinegar and 1 part wholegrain mustard.  Season and set aside for an hour or so.  Serve topped generously with chopped spring onions and parsley.
