::: Charlie Brown :::

 This little bundle of joy was my gift from Santa Claus, although he arrived a tad early, in November!
 We've named him Charlie Brown and life has never been so much fun!

::: Solo :::

Well we've got lots of catching up to do!

This little guy was born 6 weeks ago. Layla is doing amazingly well. We've named him Solo for the time being as he was the only baby born. He heads off to his new house soon, just in time for Christmas.

::: Delay :::

I'm sorry for the delay of everything at the moment. 

We have no computer and, due to the weather, we have even less photographs!

I hope to be back up and running soon though, I've got lots of news to tell...

::: Changes :::

We are still working away and decorating this cottage of ours. It's one step at a time and sometimes it feels like we're going backwards but we're getting there.

I put up my very first shelf today!

::: Cycling :::

It's been at least three years since I last went out on my bike. I used to do up to eighteen miles per day. Today, all of a sudden, I decided I'd like to go out on my bike. It'd be like the good old days. Cycling past fields of cows and sheep, seeing things you don't see when your driving and saying hello to fellow cyclists.

I did two miles and I'm practically walking like a giant jelly.

Climbing hills and fit people whizzing past me on the cycle path is not my idea of fun. I'll let you know how I do next time. 

If there is a next time...

::: Hurricane Katia :::

Hurricane Katia hit Scotland this week. Loss of power, high winds and flooding are likely. Bridges are closed, power lines are down and rubbish is flying everywhere. On coming home from work today and stopping for a cuppy at a friends, we're now staying cosy and warm indoors for the rest of the evening. I hope you are too!

::: Isle of Mull :::

For my birthday we went to the Isle of Mull.

Mull is quite a large island off the Scottish west coast. It has been on TV shows such as Coast, Springwatch and, of course, Balamory!

There is lots of wildlife on Mull, especially Sea Eagles. Unfortunately we didn't see one but we did see a deer, some seals and lots of wild bunnies!

Tobermory is such a colourful place to visit and everyone was so friendly.

The carrot cake was good too!

::: Connel Bridge :::

We've lived near Oban for an entire year now.

And we'd never walked across Connel Bridge.

Until this week.

::: The Seal Colony :::

There is a resident seal colony off the island of Kerrera, near Oban.

We took a small boat trip out to see them, it's not too far.


They had 6-8 week old pups and were awfully smelly!
