Happy August! 

It's back to normal "Scottish summer" over here, which means it's grey and rainy for the most part.

Around this time of year back home, it's usually berry picking time though! I miss it, so Chris and I are going to try to get out to a farm where you can pay to pick blackberries - enough to make a small batch of jam and maybe a pie or two. We might have to do it in the rain, but I hope it'll be worth it! I haven't actually had any blackberries since we've moved here.

Scottish strawberries are delicious too and I've been eating loads of them since summer started, so this month's wallpaper is pink and strawberry themed! It's also my first attempt at painting on an Ipad, so there's still a bit of learning to do, but I love the Procreate app so far. If you've been wanting to try it, do it, it's so much fun!

Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying this amazing summer weather! 

I think we had the hottest day ever in Glasgow on Thursday. It was 32ºC and I haven't been so sweaty since we lived in Australia! It was too hot to have Huxley outside, so I made him little paw-shaped doggy "ice-creams." If you have a doggo who would also appreciate a cool treat here is the recipe:

1 ripe banana, mashed

1/2 C peanut butter (make sure it's sugar free and xylitol free!) 

1/2 C coconut oil

Mix everything together really well and spoon or pipe into ice cube trays. Freeze until set.

Easy!

Naturally, I had ice cream too (the people kind) and since I had pretty much zero ideas for this month's free wallpaper, Chris suggested painting little ice cream cones with sunglasses. He would probably also appreciate me telling you that the little spilled ice cream was his idea too ;) 

Hope you enjoy these happy pastel-coloured little guys and if there's anything you want to see for next month's wallpaper let me know.

Now, time to go make the most of the sunshine!
