Scenic Weather

Yesterday found us heading to Inverness, to the funeral of one of our community, Pauline.  She was a larger than life character whose laughter could be heard a long time before you actually saw her.  We were sad to say our goodbyes but it was a lovely service, with many memories of her laughter and  […]

Helloooooooo (anybody here?)

My poor blog - it has been very neglected.  Will anybody even read this, I wonder.  Summer has been very busy with a mix of shows and events and my focus for social media has been Twitter and Instagram - quick to leave a quick comment, and the 2 platforms seem to be well used.  The new workshop has  […]

Little Assynt

It has been a grim few weeks in the UK, and one has to be careful not to let events overwhelm.  Self care is vital, and for us that includes leaving the laptops at home and heading out for walks.   We did a long, rough walk on Sunday, and as Peggy is the respectable age of 14 we decided to give her  […]
