We came north a bit for a break.   Hoping a change of scenery would help Janice.  It worked out well.  The cottage is the Old Post Office at Dubford on the south side of  the Moray Firth.   An old building, stone built with walls 3 foot thick. With recent winds reaching 90m.p..h  I'M GLAD.

  There is also a sawmill here, so I 've got some more lime wood  to spoil.   First time for years I've not carved something.  The withdrawals  are setting in , but tomorrow we return home.

hybernation ends

First an apology for neglecting this blog for almost a year.
There isa reason,we went to Kracow for a holiday, when we disembarked my wife Janice collapsed on the runway.   Then a series of collapsing till the last one on our return to Scotland.   She spent 14days in the acute ward of the hospital.    Since then the illness has not been identified so no treatment.  She is on oxygen 24 hrs a day.

   Obviously my priorities have changed, time has to be spent doing chores I have left to Janice.
However we hope than I can return to blogging.
