Back again, briefly, wind allowing

It's been a bit quiet around here, because we've been elsewhere! Nowhere exciting, unfortunately, and my holiday is long overdue, but with any luck, we should be in a tent (or two, if it's going to be windy, again...) in Gairloch sometime this week. If not, I'm going to be grumpy!

We've actually been down to Louth to visit my mum. David had a summer school at Nottingham City University for a week and as it's so close, thought it might be a good idea. It was hot down there, too hot. I live in Scotland to get away from all that! Anyway, we had a nice time, despite there having been no walks other than into town to shop, into town to go to the cinema, around Grimsby (HATE! Unhappy childhood) shopping and halfway up Steep Hill, Lincoln, shopping. Not my thing, shopping, but we've recieved an invitation to a wedding in September so shopping must be done. I've managed to get a pair of trousers, but I got those online. The shopping is proving difficult!

I need to get to the hills, we need less wind!

Oh No!
Time to batten down the hatches. Louise is venturing outdoors!

You have no idea Martin, just the mention of camping and in blows the next storm!

We are going camping next weekend, if that's any help. So it won't be windy. And the sun will shine. In the Yorkshire Dales, anyway!
Have fun!
