It's been a while

A new year and only just got round to thinking about blogging 2009. January was a great month - very cold but beautiful clear blue sky days with snow on the Cuillin and frozen lochs - much like the winters when we first moved to the island in 1976.

Last week our youngest son Niall, took part in the Scottish Rallying Championships. His first ever race, he was seeded at 126 out of 132. Driving a Vauxhall Nova, he came in 45th, winning second in class which made for a great day out. Never been to a cross country rally before, and I surprised myself by how much I enjoyed it, apart from the ice-locked toes.
