May the auspicious occasion of Eid , bless you with peace and bring joy to your heart and home
My scythe has arrived! I opted for a traditional, low tech, non-electrical way of cutting the long grass and so far I'm pleased with it. It's hard work but I could do with burning off a few million calories - and it will come in handy at Halloween.
This evening we to Prestongrange Museum for a 'Lights Out, Doors Open' event which included crafts, a glow-in-the-dark trail and a torchlight tour of the Beam Engine. It was a lovely evening and the walk home through the pitch black woods was extraordinarily spooky - and we saw a shooting star!
(The next event at the the museum is the Family Multi-Cultural Day on Sunday 10th October which includes Bollywood dancers, Egyptian bellydancing, classical Indian dance, an African women's choir, Chinese performers and East Lothian's Sangstream Choir.)
Back home, Nigel and I watched the atmospheric Birth.
