It has been a really hectic month or two. I've been working full-time, planning/teaching workshops, had visitors, been on holiday, been to a quilt show and trying to fit in all the usual kid/house stuff too.
So, our holiday...what can I say?! It was just so lovely. We booked a week at Wildside Highland Lodges near Loch Ness to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. I think it might be the first time we've ever stayed somewhere where we felt our accommodation lived up to the pictures on the website.
The lodges were lovely and clean. The kids loved the hot tub (and so did we!). We were really pleased with our visit. We had been a bit worried about it being so far to take to the kids but it wasn't a problem and we were slightly worried that there might not be enough for them to do but they loved it. Neither of them wanted to come home.
They enjoyed the walk to Falls of Foyers:
RIB boat trip on Loch Ness.
We had no mobile signal in the lodges and WiFi wasn't available in the lodge we stayed in (we could get a signal at Reception and at the play park area) and it was quite nice to feel so remote! I managed to read a couple of books on my Kindle and start a third, as well as finish the binding on a quilt.
It's probably a good job I've finished something as I bought quite a lot at the Festival of Quilts - more to come on that soon!
