Cairngorms and Back

Just had a great week in Aviemore and The Cairngorms.  It was mixed weather with spells of sun and snowy showers.  I love it so much up there and would give anything to live up there.  We went out on our bikes and I cycled in the snow for the first time!  Came back home yesterday but not back at work until Thursday.  

My major disappointment was not calling into the Dolls House Emporium at Carlisle as I was hoping to buy The Retreat:(  I've got some great ideas for mini projects whilst up there!
 
Here's a few photos from the last week (these were taken with my mobile phone as I hoped to post each day and didn't!)

Stunning view from Cairngorms

The snow was higher than our car on the way up to the Cairngorms

We cycled on the snowy trails

How Time Flies & World Book Night

My how time flies - New Years was the last time I posted - sorry blog land!  Real life has got in the way. Work is really busy even more than before, lots more hours all unpaid and more bullying.  On top of that we have a major admin review starting.  Stress is beginning to take its toll at the moment.  I've been wondering about starting up on my own but only at the research stage.

 I do have two small mini projects under way but not done enough to reveal yet so they'll have to wait for a wee while.

World Book Night  - this takes place on 23 April 2013 and I've been successful as a 'giver' and my book of choice is No 1 Ladies Detective Agency - I love these books
