Here we are at the end of a lovely weekend. Lou was here visiting and although altogether it was a lazy few days we did go manage to show her a couple of sites. Rubha Phoil is just down the road and although we didn’t spot any seals from the forest walk viewpoints it was a nice wander over the sheep wool paths (bouncy and non-squelchy!). Lachlan enjoyed playing in the old fishing boat next to the ‘play park’ – a big tree hung with nets and ropes – and of course we visited the fairies. Yesterday, we drove over to Elgol stopping off in Torrin for lunch at the Blue Shed Cafe. Its a lovely wee place with a rather grand view of the Cullins and I’m very glad one of the owners comes to my sewing class or else I would never have discovered it. Their delicious and fairtrade baking and soup set us up for a decidedly chilly walk on the beach.
And of course visitors means eating or certainly does in this house! Aubergine pilaf, polenta lasagna and pizza were all on the dinner menu and Henrik served up waffles for breakfast. Banana maple cookies were consumed and although we didn’t have room for the brownies Lou set off down the road with a couple wrapped up and we managed to fit them in today too :)
Below you can see the progress on my latest sewing project. Each curtain has one hem. Its seems I have a lot of work to do and finish over my remaining three sewing classes! Also, a couple of those maple cookies still remaining…… The big picture shows our new frame finally filled and hung. It looks lovely and goes a bit towards my resolution to get some more pictures displayed in this house. The shield was a Lachlan and me make today (inspired by No Time for Flashcards). I did try to get a photo of him playing with it but they all turned out a blur. And finally, the mini photographer himself!
