After simply appalling weather yesterday, the views of the mountains today were superb.

Some of my bakes

After years of being a devoted follower, I finally decided to apply for the GGBO. Here are a few pictures of my bakes, all arranged on our tea-table with the best china. I actually got a call from Love Productions and they said that I had got to the next stage – so here is […]

Funny place to choose….

Earlier today Tora was on top of the microwave – this I can understand as there was chicken cooking in it. But why would he go here…. “I’m in your comms cabinet, speeding up your Internet”

Winter Wonderland

Woke up this morning to find that it is snowing at loch level for the first time this year. Normally I love snow, but my mum and her friend were supposed to be coming for lunch today and I had made loads of food. One look at the web cam on the Rest though and […]

In London

Quick visit to London to attend a reception with R who has been awarded a Crest Fellowship. Here he is getting his award from Ian Glover the head of Crest. This is quite an honour and is due to the fact that he has passed a top professional exam three times in a row. There […]

Beinn an Lochain

Unusually for a Sunday, it was a beautiful day today, and R and I climbed Beinn an Lochain (the mountain just to the right as you turn off the A83 towards Lochgoilhead). It was very frosty underfoot, and as we got higher we had to walk alongside the path, as the path itself was just […]

Some visitors

We noticed these gentlemen in a field near Drimsynie – they are not natives of Argyll – unless I miss my guess they are belted Galloways from ‘down south’. They must be up here paying a visit to their northern friends the Heilan’ Coos which were placidly sharing the same field. They gave us a […]

Ochils

We went to visit my sister in law V and her partner on Sunday. They live in Alloa, not far from the Ochils. On the way there I was poo pooing them to R as it was a lovely day and I thought we would have been better off them coming to us and going […]

Hot, hot, hot

R was away in Manchester for a couple of days doing a training course. As a nice surprise for him I made a huge curry with naan bread, but by the time he came home he was too tired to eat. We were visiting my parents briefly the next day on our way to Glasgow, […]
