Yellowcraig beach in haar
Yellowcraig beach in the haar - doesn't it look gloomy? Actually, it wasn't so bad and, as usual, we all had a lovely time. Our weekends are very precious just now as John is only home from Friday night until early Sunday early. Gosh, it is good to see him when he gets home!
In amongst all the many things being organised and sorted for moving we are trying to ensure the kids have lots of attention and time for us all to be together - life is a bit of a juggling act just now (I suppose it always is, only even more so at the moment) but we will hopefully be settled up north by mid June (either in our own house or a rental). We're due to move out of here in less than three weeks...........sounds pretty scary when I put it like that! My parents are a huge help and the kids and I will probably move in with them for a wee while before we all head up to the Black Isle. We need a few more pieces to, hopefully, drop into place before we have firm plans. I'm hoping I'll feel a bit more in control if and when those last bits of the puzzle are safely secured. Fingers crossed and hold thumbs*.
Our Susie is one now and has grown into such a lovely dog. She has a beautiful nature and can run all day - just what we were hoping for. We all really enjoy having her as part of our family - except perhaps poor Lily cat who doesn't get cross with Susie, so still gets chased. It seems really unfair for Lily but I have no idea how to stop Susie - clearly a quick chase is a lot of fun. And tips?
I'll try not to bother you too much with tales of moving but it is tricky not to mention it at all, it does take up rather a lot of my thoughts at the moment! Thanks for bearing with me, and I do so much appreciate your comments and thoughts - they really do help.
* Hold thumbs - the South African version of fingers crossed, I always do both to be on the safe side!
