Happy New Year!

FL and I were in the Highlands to celebrate our first wedding anniversary (!) and New Year.








We stayed in a quirky cottage near Beauly, where the kitchen was in a separate "beach hut" across the lawn from the rest of the house. On New Year's Eve it was minus seven Celsius at midday, dropping to minus twelve degrees at midnight! It was shockingly cold. We had been looking forward to snuggling up in front of a log fire but when we got there, it had been banned by Health and Safety!?! So we cranked up the central heating (sadly the same kind we have at home!) and piled on the blankets instead. Only Roobeedoo could pick a Highland Cottage for December with insufficient heating!




I knitted a lot (more of that another day). FL went golfing on a frosted golf course - the only player they had seen for days! And we walked in the amazing winter landscapes.

Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary to you both.
What a bummer about the heating! But, so lovely to get away.

BTW - Excellent pic of the two of you. Didn't realize FL was such a good looking guy. Sean Connery is a troll in comparison.

Happy Anniversary! (I was thinking back to last year when I remembered your amazing wedding photo - so I was about to dig into your archives to find out when to wish you both a good anniversary!)

I hope that you have a fabulous (and sock filled) 2009!
