Our visitors went home on Thursday morning and I've spent the last few days chasing my tail and blogging's been out the window again!
We had a fantastic time with our visitors but our trip was a bit of a disaster. The train journey to Mallaig was very disappointing as it was pouring rain all the way so we couldn't see the beautiful scenery. We were actually catching the end of Hurricane Katia and by the time we got to Mallaig the rain was coming down in bucket-loads and the wind was blowing a hoolie. Our guest house was good and we managed to find somewhere really nice for our evening meal. Unfortunately the next morning the sea was too rough for the ferry to sail to Skye so we ended up taking the train to Fort William, bus to Inverness and picked up the train again there. The weather was much better by then and Scotland's scenery was on show. We spent a few hours in Inverness which was very enjoyable ... note to myself ... must go back again soon!

Anyway, enough rambling about our wee break. When we got back Mr Postie had been and left some beautiful ribbons I'd won in Pinky's candy. Can't wait to use them, but then again, maybe I should just stroke them and cherish them!
Mr C has been working today and I've been a bit lazy but managed to make 4 samples for Ooh La La Creations new CD which is being showcased on Create & Craft on 25 September and I also managed a challenge card.
