Re: nasty little buggers

Poor doggies and poor you - I got stung on my breast by some wasps in Kenya when I happened to walk into a nest that was hanging from a tree. We didnt have wasps or ants on Sanday, but here in the Scottish Highlands, we have the dreaded midges. Normally there are two hatchings a year, but this year ...

Re: Back from holiday

Oh wow - brilliant photos.

Did you see the Northern Lights? Apparently my new home "town" of Rogart is THE best place to see them in the whole of the UK - its a shame I am always in bed when it happens lol!

Re: Jigsaw puzzles

It's a red letter day for me - I belong to many local "Buy & Sell" sites on Facebook - but you have to be quick if you want to snap u p a real bargain. Yesterday someone advertised 35 x 1,000 and 1,500 piece jigsaw puzzles for just £2 each, and guess who answered the advert first. I simply cant beli...

Re: My Summer has simply flown by!

Yes, it is heather, Drac. As you know, I spent two months this past Winter in Rogart, renting a little cottage, while we looked for a new home. When I returned to Rogart in June, I was driving along with my mouth open in amazement at the great change in the scenery - just awash with the brilliant co...

Re: Jigsaw puzzles

I too have recently rediscovered my childhood and started to do jigsaw puzzles again, although I dont have much free time just now - but I think this will be one of my hobbies this coming Winter. I have a lovely big dining table in the kitchen which I plan to use for this purpose!

My Summer has simply flown by!

It's been a long and tiring Summer for me - first I spent 8 weeks in April/May packing up my home on Sanday, and then after being nomads for a couple of weeks when we were homeless, we eventually moved into our new house on 3rd June. Since then, I have been working non-stop unpacking and finding new...

Sad news

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that my long time Canadian friend Diane/Dragon passed away this morning. Some older MM members may remember we both came here from Game Nuts. I am devastated - I had planned to revisit her next year.

Re: Packing Chaos

Sorry I havent been here for a while, but as you can imagine, life has been a bit manic for us. We feel like nomads - my doggies are so confused as we will have had 4 different residences in the last 10 days, but the end is near. Last Monday we left our Sanday home, and set sail on two ferries and a...

I wish, Drac - there are so so many questions left unanswered in my Family Tree, and nobody left to answer them!

Re: Just thinking

Well I have just quickly read the first 6 pages of Mum's journal - very interesting - all to do with what the soldiers had to contend with when they came back from the Great War - very distressing to read about - she sure had a talent for writing, that's for sure!

Re: Packing Chaos

They did a very very professional job, as I knew they would - the two guys spent most of the day here, filling up two vans, albeit a shorter working day as they had to work around the ferry sailings. I am so very pleased to see all the boxes that Tanya and I packed disappear - It's now only 25 days ...
