One month later I am at last blogging… on a new blog no less. Sleeker, slimline… nice! So, it will hopefully make eveything a little easier! In the month since I last blogged a lot has happened but nothing has happened, if this is at all possible.
We said good bye to Peesh, hello to Seoras and learned a lot about caring for ponies feet.
We had a great time with family visiting and staying along the road from us, got the chance to be “local tourists”. I especially enjoyed going back to Camus Mallaig, which it seems to be an annual occurence only and a day-trip up to the north end; including Stein (ate in 20 degree heat at the Stein Inn - LOVELY and there was a palm tree!), Geary, Waternish, Dunvegan, Portree, Sligachan: beautiful day of weather we had. Learned all about the tanning process at Skye Skyns, visited Shilasdair Yarns (which is at the very end of the beaten track!) and of course had a lovely visit to Skye Batiks (haven’t been in there for long enough and their stuff is just as lovely as it ever was!) amongst many other lovely places.
In the meantime all mortgage papers were submitted and we waited and waited. A lack of understanding of Crofting Law (on their part) is having a slowing impact on matters, which only adds to our growing frustration regarding the house build.
We have been very busy as well preparing for our imminent house move (2.5 weeks and counting left of living in the matchbox) and also our baby who is 9 and a bit weeks away. I am now tired and heading to bed, but I will update the missing month in a more detail soon enough, tomorrow even, if you’re lucky!
