Lamb Chop has stopped limping! I told her I'd make a movie. She could become famous. She wasn't that interested. But she was interested in a slice of bread and showed how she could eat it using no hands, no table manners, no stops, no pauses for breath. She was keen to help make the film - the camera looked promising (tasty). Whilst filming I pointed to a piece of bread she'd missed. She couldn't quite work it out, and as you can see she's not the brightest cookie, but she's very funny and it's nice not see her limping past the window. Meanwhile she continues to eat all the scraps, the bird seed, the tree bark, and any blade of grass or anything that might grow in what I try to call my garden!

We can't remember whether we ordered a door for the dishwasher, and the pelmets or plinths at the bottom of the cupboards need to be fitted

Last week there were six or seven swans on this loch. They were either Whooper or Bewick's swans. I know Whooper swans are bigger but I need a Whooper and a Bewick's swan to be sitting next to one another to make that distinction! They weren't there today, could they have been on the way to their winter quarters from Iceland? Siberia? to Slimbridge? With their own inbuilt Sat Nav devices they won't have so many question marks as to where they have come from and where they are going!

Tomorrow I shall begin homemaking but this past week I have just enjoyed and marveled that I live where I live and have a home I can make again.

Thank you to all the workmen, family and friends who helped get us this far.
A happy 2009 to you all
