|Islay's first ever photo - isn't it good? The white 'tube' is a replica whale jawbone|
We have been enjoying a lovely family holiday, managing to catch up with lots of relatives which has been wonderful, despite a chest infection (Islay), ear infection (Katie) and colds (the rest of us)*. The various illnesses on top of the happy holiday chaos, plus Islay's birthday just six days before Christmas, has kept me away from here - but I will be back!
In the meantime take care and I hope you get to enjoy some fresh air and beautiful views like we did this morning. We had a stunning New Year's day walk up Berwick Law. And now I can hear the rain pounding against the windows........we'll light the fire shortly, snuggle together for some games followed by a simple family meal. A very good start to the year.
* Thank goodness for antibiotics. Poor little girls. Islay is pretty close to fully better but Katie is still feeling the need for a lot of mummy cuddles and I think it may be a few more nights before she remembers how to sleep properly. I do love my snuggles with her and just need to remember to treasure them and not feel frustrated that they rather hamper getting on with things, not to mention sleep.
