After the event

After all the eating, drinking and being merry, it’s nice to slip into that quiet time between Christmas and the New Year. As you may have read earlier, the weather at Garybuie has been anything but quiet recently with severe gales and horizontal hail/rain becoming the norm. But yesterday, Boxing day, the day dawned with a clear blue sky and not a breath of wind! Mother Nature’s festive gift. So, Kevin donned his running shoes and headed for the hills, whereas I had the same idea as Cecilia and went for a Boxing Day walk, maybe just to remind myself just how beautiful the glen is.

The sheep all looked happy – and clean – to have the chance to finally dry out!


I never had the chance to wish you a happy Christmas before the event, so instead I hope that you had a wonderful day, however you spent it. Our day was quiet, just the two of us with dad and between us, we received some lovely gifts. There’s one that I have to share though! This one was from Matt, our eldest son, his wife, Sarah and those twinnies!

This should certainly be a conversation piece for our guests next year! I’ll show you my wee garden when I’ve planted it up.

    After all that unseemly weather you deserve a lovely day! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for the Wee Garden.

      It will be an indoor garden Lynda otherwise the wood would spoil in our soggy Skye weather. So, in the conservatory I think which is hot in the summer. At the moment I’m thinking cacti or succulents. Depends whether I can source any online.

    Everything looks so sparkling in the sun. It will be a grand surprise to see your wee garden in spring.
    Christmas day rained all day……….and 23 degrees; just wonderful, it was lovely to have such a treat in summer.

      Oh, it really lifts the spirits to see the sunshine in the midst of all that WET! Glad you had your summer treat although one thing’s for sure, I guess you’ll never have a white Christmas!
