Then the rain came - the latter part of October (in fact most of October) was Wet!. Despite our best efforts work on the garden ground to a halt and I, for one, contemplated using the raised beds as paddy fields.
Rachel moved in until her own place (West Byre) is finished - hopefully by the end of the month.
Wrote the above at the end of October now 7th December, having a small party tonoght to celebrate our wedding anniversary (20 years!). Meant to get away for a few days but on the way south yesterday hit gridlock at Stirling - the who;e of the central belt was at a virtual standstill because of snow. We eventually managed to turn and came home. Roads around here not to bad. Incredible weather with over a foot of snow week-end before last.
Gordon Susie, Indie and Harrison moved in next door a couple of weeks ago. We had a great night round there watching Lord of the Rings - Part 1 on their huge telly. A good Tombreck night with almost everyone in attendance and lots of good victuals (as sailors say)
Rachel and Emma and
Dirl, Suzanne and Eileen are due to move into the conversions in south byre this weekend. So we should have some 23 residents for the festive season which bodes well for parties.
Anyway this is just really to wish you all a merry Christmas and a Guid New Year
