In the west of Scotland in what is called the summer, the people would move the cattle, sheep and things onto higher ground and would essentially camp out.
The shieling was associated with fun, romance and slightly less rain. I too have decided to move to the shieling.
It is now very hot.
Magnificent is my house but through a quirk of fate only my bedroom has AC. The owner ran off with the units from the other rooms and I am too much of a cheap skate to buy new ones. Last year I toughed it out and sat in the main room with a towel on the floor under my seat to absorb the liters of sweat that oozed out of me.
After a very hot lunch,
I decide to hie me to the shieling, er like the bedroom.
It is so comfortable.
