A farmer once told me that farmer’s spend their life ‘looking over hedges’ Checking to see the progress their neighbouring farms are making and who was where with the seasonal work. We don’t have many hedges in Orkney. Instead we have miles and miles of dry stone dykes (walls) and fences, and if you look … More My Week In Pictures – Season Change
Just when you thought it was safe to come back on the internet, I’m back! The last few weeks has largely been work and swimming. Over the summer weeks, there are lots of shows and events including Stromness Shopping Week. An annual event with lots of things to take part in including the Holms Race. … More My Summer In Pictures – I’m Back!
I’m afraid, dear readers, that my battery has run a little flat. What with the loss of a very dear friend in January
I’ve been on holiday this week. Now let me tell you what being ‘on holiday’ from work looks like. It means I get to take a week off work to do all the things I don’t have time to do usually because I’m at work. Like, take the dog to the vets, take the car to … More My Week In Pictures – No Summer, Ballet and Introvert Struggles.

It all started last week when I waxed lyrical about what amazing weather we’d been having in Orkney and I woke up the next day to fog so thick you could barely see the hand in front of your face! It’s been pretty dire all week. There’s still need to emerge … More My Week In Pictures – Getting Your Brave On
After some pretty serious indecisiveness, Orkney is finally playing ball and we’ve enjoyed some really gorgeous weather. Lots of getting outside and playing in the sea as well as test driving the new hot tub. I don’t really get hot tubs tbh. I’ve never been bothered with the idea of them, this was an Orkney … More My Week In Pictures – Middle-Aged Adventures and Feeling Good.

There’s not better Sunday evening than one where you don’t have to go to work on the Monday. Thanks to a Bank Holiday I’m living my best life right this second as I can look forward to going to bed and not setting the alarm. This doesn’t happen often! To top off the joy it’s the … More My Week In Pictures – Looking for Sunbeams
