Food Basket Contents

I bought a wicker basket to carry cakes and pies over for my parents. It looks more decorative than a plastic bag and it keeps things flat. Not sure how, but Schrodi found it on top of the chest of drawers in the hall and decided it would be a good place for a nap.

Lochgoilhead Five Years On

Well we have now been living in the Highlands for five years and things have actually come on apace in a number of areas.

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 […]

Another Good Poem

My Mum has been reading “The Bridge of Sighs” and came up with a poem relating to last night. Two more unfortunates Witches and Reapers, Banged on my door To give me the creepers. Look at their garments The best of old Amazon Drips from their clothing Take a look instantly With fear and with […]

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 […]
