It’s been a funny old week …

… in several ways really.  The weather has been … well wintery, to say the least with lots of snow both here and on the hills.  We’ve had sunny days and snowy days, down right chilly days and very icy days, but today it’s a very wet and windy day. Not a good day for going out … again.

The dogs haven’t really wanted to venture out this week either, although I did drag them (well I drove them actually it was me that had to be mentally dragged out of my cozy house) down to Loch Harport for a wander and breath of invigorating fresh air.  So here you go in pictures more than words.

And finally today, after storms all night and torrential rain that washed nearly all the snow away, we had a touch of sunshine to cheer us up … it lasted all of five minutes.

Looking forward to the weekend though.  The rest of our furniture arrives for the new dining room and its the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch.  Are you joining in? Watch this space for results from our garden in the centre of Skye.
