Cedric Has Arrived!!


This Little Person has a bit of a wanderlust about him.  Well I've certainly had trouble keeping up with him any way. 

As you can see by the wear on his furry boots!

 At least he has a good leather cloak and hood to keep him warm and dry.

But most of the time he just likes to feel the wind in his beard.

*Edit*  As Cedric is a bit of a wanderer I had to find him a staff.  Of course it has a guiding crystal on the top too.

There and Back Again. Again.

 I know were were in Scotland a couple of posts ago but John decided we had to go back up to here...

To have a play day on this...

She is the Lancashire Fusileer pulling the Jacobite Train.  This is a sort of photo of us going over the Glenfinnan Viaduct.  Unfortunately we were facing towards the back and I had to scootch around and the windows were terribly dirty. (Left hand side is the best for views Julie!!!) You can see more HERE with much better photos!! There was no sign of Ford Anglias flying overhead but plenty of young people with wands.

Our destination before re-boarding to come back again was the pretty sea town of Mallaig where we had a lovely fish and chip lunch and a wander around.

Later that evening we went for a drive around and up Glen Roy and some more lovely views.

On the Wednesday we drove up to the Isle of Skye which, unfortunately was rather wet.  Only on the island mind.  Coming back, as with going up, from Castle Eilean Donan south it was lovely sunshine!

Oh, this was our room and I can tell you I looked absolutely everywhere for Mel Gibson.  It's where he stayed when filming Braveheart.  I know it was a few years ago but he might have popped back for a bit.  John did his best but found the blue paint got everywhere and the kilt drafty.

A dawn picture of Glen Coe heading for the airport.  Another amazing trip away.

I did return to this mess though.  There is a desk under there somewhere, honest.

I'e been making these danglies from some of Chris' beach finds.  It seems a shame just to keep the piled up in a pot.  They're wonky because they were stil swinging!!

I'd foiled some of the glass and finally managed to drill others.  Some shells, stones, pottery and a few beads and they twinkle quite nicely in the window.

And I have layered up another group of silks and scrim to hand stitch with a goal in mind for this too.  

Apart from having another quite large tummy problem before we went away, we knew the signs this time so it was to the doctors straight away, I managed to go to the Stitch and Creative Craft Show at Sandown with Elsa and Jan on Friday.  We were a right three I had no energy, Jan is about have a knee replaced and Elsa with bump but I think we all had a great time nattering and ooing and ahhing.  I brought more things home to play with I just have to clear that desk a little!

I know there seemed to be a problem with one of my followers commenting last week.  I think it's because I went over to Google +.  On reading further is seems if you have a blog with Blogger and are on Google + the only people who can then comment on your blog are other Google + users. Absolutely stupid set up, but it doesn't surprise me.  Anyway I am no back to being a normal Google user but please let me know through my email or facebook if you can't comment now.  I'd hate to loose any of you.

I'm about to start another whole new round of blood tests etc in a bit and then I will clear that desk today!!! Have a great week.
