Given that this blog is called "The View from Macy", I thought this would be a good morning to add a view.
This is the view I can see as I type here on the 16th August - High Summer in central Scotland.

In the background, behind the grey cloud are the pentland hills, in the centre of the picture is Cheesetown's 900 year old church looking suitably grim, and inthe foreground is my garden which has gone completely to pot since no one in their right mind is going out in this weather to mow lawns or prune roses.
