We had a lovely time at Ullapool. the weather was very overcast and windy for the first couple of days, but the last couple were spectacular- warm, sunny and still. We relaxed around the cottage for the windy days, just taking small walks down to the loch and into town. However for the last couple of days, when the weather was so nice we got up early and set off for some long walks. Emily and I found some streams and picniced by them while Malcolm and Jack did some big hills. It gave me a chance to spend time with Emily listening to all that teenage angst. I am so happy I am not a teenager- they really were confusing times as I remember, and seem to be reliving with Emily. I have spent today washing , trying to get some kind of order back into our lives before I go back to work on Tuesday. It was a gorgeous day here and so in between hanging out washing I did some gardening- just weeding and cutting back, but there remains lots to be done. I have the most spectalular camelia bush- about 2m high and covered with flowers. It is truly spectacular. Anyway I will post a couple of pictures from our holiday- one is the view from the cottage- every morning and evening a herd of deer would come right by the cottage and graze almost outside the door. The other photo is of a boat in the harbour off loading its catch of halibut.
Thought I would post this LO all about Emily at 14. It is all about her fluctuating moods.
