Good Things Come…

After a very tough, ridiculously busy few months at work, the Easter holidays have finally arrived.  To say I’m happy would be the understatement of the year.  It so good to have room in my head once again to take in the world.  And to think about blogging too.  I’ve been away from this space so long,  it feels a little odd to be writing a post once again.  Shall sort that out in the coming weeks by posting often.

Spent the first four days of the holiday on the west coast with friends.   As if celebrating with us, the skies, which had been heavy and slate grey for weeks and weeks, broke out in brilliant blue for the whole weekend.  A perfect backdrop to the fantastic time we had indulging in lots of good food and wine and then walking it all off on the hills and shores of Skye and Lochalsh.

Back home now and, really, I feel brand new.

Leakey’s

Leakey’s is an enormous second hand bookshop and cafe in Inverness.  Chock-a-block full of really old, kinda old and not-at-all old books and prints and maps and photographs, it’s a perfect place to spend an afternoon browsing and reading and buying in between big bowls of soup, coffees and lovely traybake cakes.

If you’re coming to Inverness, I reckon Leakey’s should be at the top of your “To See” list.

Evening Cycle

These photos were taken just a couple of weeks ago. I’d got home from work and the light was lovely so I headed out on my bike for an hour before making tea.

Glad I took advantage of the opportunity whilst I could.  The the clocks have now changed and the nights are drawing in and I’m arriving home in the dark in the evenings.

Sigh.
