Some good cat pictures

This is Tora assisting with taking down the tinsel. Afterwards he seemed so exhausted that he was happy to settle down with his brother. Poor Schrodi was on the chair first and then Tora invaded it – this is after they have been fighting off and on for weeks as the weather has been so […]

Donich Path Notice

Thank goodness that the Forestry Commission have posted some notices on the Donich Circular path forbidding the use of motor vehicles. Not only have there been trail bikes seen going up there – but the Dutch army actually took an armoured car up there. They have been told by the FC to repair the path […]

Snow Joke in Earra Ghàidheal

Woke up this morning on R’s birthday to heavy snow. We went out and labouriously cleared the 72m driveway – although I will be surprised if we get any deliveries today. The cats assisted us by running up and down complaining loudly. Here is me in the Lama hat which N and J brought me […]

Well done to R!

As anyone who reads this will know we have been deeply frustrated by our lack of Internet access since we moved in here. Basically we have been paying an awful lot more money for an awful lot less data than we got in Livingston for an awfully long time. But I have to give it […]

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”
