Well that vacation went quickly! DH and I didn’t do a lot, as restrictions had only just eased in Scotland so some things were not open and we also decided we didn’t need to go anywhere! It was just nice to be away in the peace and quiet. Here are a few pictures of the view from the cottage and a couple of times we did venture out.
We did venture to the outskirts of Inverness to go to Leakey’s Second Hand Bookshop. As you can see from the two pictures they have lots and lots of books and if you go in the cooler months the wood burner is going and it is great!
The above building is across the road from Leakey’s and was originally Dunbar Hospital.
We headed home on Saturday and it started to rain as we left and never stopped until late into the evening and we were home! You would never have known it was August by the weather!!!
It was a lovely two weeks but it’s great to be home and see Eldest, Youngest and little Treacle, who had had the best time with her Boys, being treated like a Princess!!!!
We also celebrated Eldest’s Birthday, 26 (!), but he had been at work all day so was happy to have a takeaway at home as he did not finish until 8.30pm!!!!
Today it is back to work (!) and catch up on all the business work and all the washing and ironing as well. House jobs at the end of the week as well and possibly gardening if the weather is okay at the weekend! DH has also. on Saturday, got the first event in over eighteen months so that will be interesting to see how it goes. We also have a long weekend this coming weekend as it is the last Bank Holiday of the year and we should have been painting our bedroom and dressing room but that is not going to happen now with DH’s event, hey ho it will get done.
I hope you all have had a good two weeks and I will try and show you some of the things I mananged to get quilted and done whilst I was away, although I do now have quite a lot of bindings to sew to the backs of the quilts!!!!!!!
Have a great week.
Hugs & Love, Susie & Treacle xx
