Mr P returned from his trip(working holiday/jolly) to the cottage in the far west of scotland(Ayror/Knoydart) last night, he had a great time but appreciated a hot shower back home as they could only have a bath up there, inside the cottage but in brown stream water as thats where their water supply comes from! I thought you might like to share a few of the photos he took, it looks like an amazing place. This first one is of the boat they use up there, the drunken duck, Mr P had to get into the north sea a couple of times trying to sort it out i believe-rather him than me!
Thee handsome chaps were everywhere...
Oh girls, just think what we could do to the inside of this place with a farrow and ball paint chart in one hand and a CK catalogue in the other! I know some people would say it has an old school charm but no, id love to give it a makeover-can you see the old parapet in the corner of the room?
If you step out of the cottage and walk 10 feet...This is where you end up.....
Overall i think a very productive week was had by all, and of course the week couldnt pass without just a little mishap(Mel your hubby will love this).....(thats Jim pointing, or 'big dog' as i believe he's affectionately known). The lads were towing this land rover to the cottage after a few pints in the local pub when the rope got caught over a wheel and oops, into the ditch Mr P senior was tipped, i believe he shouted a few unrepeatable words to which Mr P junior replied 'what? its alright dad, i didnt even spill my pint'! Boys!!!!!
As always, thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it, before i go, i must say a happy birthday to my beautiful granny Thea, who is no longer us-she would have been 79 on friday the 3rd April, she was truely wonderful, she smoked and swore and told you exactly what she thought of you but she loved us all very much and shes my hero. My mum thinks i have lots of her qualities, mainly the stubborn ones!
love you Granny xx
