Sometimes it rains in Ullapool
and rains and rains
We've been given an enormous helping of top soil which is wonderful for the garden
and we kid ourselves it's wonderful for us too. All the exercise we get, digging, lugging and tipping the soggy soil down the bank by the drive to the house
which is steep
but will, when covered in soil, help shrubs and trees to grow
Rainbows appear and waterfalls are flowing again
We've been given some fresh Mackerel straight from the loch.
Sometimes we're given these. Lochbroom prawns (langoustine)
Jo has been staying with us for the last month. She is due to fly home this coming week
She is still getting over glandular fever - but there is light at the end of the tunnel. The best gift of all is that she is slowly beginning to feel better.
