|So many shades of green!|
It was nicer than I expected. Our cottage was near the loch side so you could walk from the front door down to the water where it was so peaceful, apart from the lilting burn (which was pretty full - we got our fair share of rain although the sun shone more than I dared hope), the only other sounds the meh-ing of sheep in the nearby field and birdsong. We discovered a colony of lizards in the rockery and one evening I spotted the barn owl, an eerily silent figure flitting through the orchard.
And midges. Of course. I got a good crop of bites - by the way, why is it always me who gets eaten alive and not OH? Is his blood less tasty?
And it turned out we had wifi which I didn't expect so I've been lurking about the internet after all. So much for my good intentions.
Anyway I feel relaxed and spaced out now so it's ironed out a few of my wrinkles. Here are a few snaps to give you an idea.
