Baby Shark

Tora wearing the “Baby Shark” costume I’ve made him to wear over Christmas. I think the tail piece could do with some work as the fin isn’t standing up correctly.

Weather bad and river very high

The river is about as high today as I have seen it since the first year we moved in. That was the year it rained every day between September and March. Anyway, today it is a total raging torrent and I would not give much for the chances of anyone who fell in. Our pond […]

Unreliablity of deliveries

I may have mentioned this before, but for some reason we are designated as a remote postcode, even though we are only just over an hour’s drive from Glasgow. We are in the PA range, and I’ve even seen some websites where this entire range is included as a remote postcode which is a bit […]

Halloween

We paid a surprise visit to Mum and Dad yesterday for Halloween. I was a witch (some would say appropriately) and R was the Spirit of Death – complete with Scythe. I was a bit disappointed that my Mum immediately realized it was me when I opened my mouth to do my guising piece which […]

Solar Panel

This is our new solar panel which we are using to power lights for our shed. The old greenhouse on the same site had wired power from the house, but when we got rid of it we never got the new shed we replaced it with connected up. I had a feeling that getting the […]
