A Winter Wander

It's been pretty cold and frosty up here recently and so Max and Juno (and I!) took the opportunity to go for a wander...

1/6th scale TV and PS4! (tutorial!)

 Hurrah, not another holiday post! XD

I've been meaning to post about this for a few weeks now, so here's my 'kind of a tutorial/kind of shopping list' thing for how to create your own 'working' miniature TV.

Rockcliffe Holiday and Close Encounters of the Furred Kind

Ok, I know you're all probably more than sick of my holiday posts and can't wait for me to get back to my usual crafty stuff but this is the last one for a while, I promise...and there's cute and fluffy creatures in this so it's worth it!

I typed most of this out whilst I was there as a kind of diary thing, hence the changing tenses at times! I'm also not going to bother to split this up by the day like I usually do because I really can't be arsed and want to get it out of the way, lol, so everything's all in one big bumper post for a change.

Here's a sneak peek at what to expect...

Is this not the literal cutest thing ever?

Portmahomack Holiday - Part 8 - Cliffs, Crafts and Caves!

Our last couple of days went by pretty quickly or so it seemed. We left my aunt and uncle's house, then headed to Rothes to meet up with my mum's cousin Bill and his wife Lynn. Bill had a new dog so we spent a few minutes getting introduced to the very gorgeous Hazel!


Portmahomack Holiday Part 7 - Picts, Seals and Shells

 Sorry for all the holiday spam, I usually breeze through them all pretty quickly but my motivation has been somewhat lacking recently! There's only a couple more posts to go though!

Portmahomack Holiday - Part 6 - Birthdays, Picts and Fine Dining!

The last full day of our time in Portmahomack was also my mum's birthday. I don't think the prospect of ending the holiday was the best present she could have asked for though! As she's got herself hopelessly addicted to the antics of Flipper, Neptune, Moby, Coral and Koi - the 'Under the Sea' litter of the Kitten Cuddle Room, I decided to get her a kitten of her own.

Portmahomack Holiday Part 5 - Astrophotography!

One of the things I hate most about living where I do is the light pollution. Even on a dark, clear night, the sky is still tainted by a faint orange glow, and the plethora of streetlights makes shooting the stars difficult.

At Portmahomack however, there were no such issues, and provided I turned my camera away from the handful of lights which lit the lane behind the cottage, I was in almost perfect darkness.
