So long as the knitting's not too frayed DD - or you either! 

Hope your OH is feeling a bit more like himself now too. You've had a lot to cope with recently. How is Shadow getting on - have you seen him?

RB - it's a lovely series - he's done a couple of them now. 

You can go to Oban a couple of different ways but whichever way you go, the hills are stunning. The usual route to Fort Bill on the A82 takes you through Glencoe, and before that you have all the Crianlarich, Tyndrum, Bridge of Orchy and Etive hills either side of the road. 

I promised a couple of Loch Lomond views for Snow. This one's from April 2007, from the summit of Ben Lomond looking across to the Arrochar hills :

Same time, but looking south down Loch Lomond-it's not frozen, it's just the light! Somewhere down there is Firkin Point

Views of Ben Lomond. From The Cobbler, May bank holiday this year :




From Ben Donich at the Rest and be Thankful in October :

Finally, from the A82 on the way home that day :

Hope you like them

If you have a well known DIY store handy - they often have things like Pyracantha on offer at this time of year.

It's a start RB. Hopefully the legal process won't be more painful than the physical one. Fingers crossed for you all x

W'song - why is it that something that should be simple is the thing that takes the longest

No philippa. Naughty step for you. You can say C'mas though. Less obvious.... 

Haha - hoho!

I've planted daffs in December before, with no problems. They'll just flower a bit later. Tulips are ideally planted just now anyway. They're all better popped in some compost in pots than just left to their own devices, as they'll get dried out.
