Greetings and some UPDATES from Pilmuir Steading

Sorry I have been remiss in  keeping this Blog updated…….BUT………(there is always a but).

Believe it or not I have n=been as busy as the proverbial 0one armed paperhanger.

2 dogs recuperating from serious operations.  Isla who had her  double hip operation and a broken Femur pinned 2 months ago is well on the way to a full recovery. However her walking is curtailed to a maximum of 40 minutes twice a day. On a leash. This has wreaked havoc with both her andmy weight loss programme. When she was at the Vet for her post op she had regained 6 of the 10 Kilograms she had lost. I however am a wee bit luckier I am still sitting at 129 Kilos and holding.

Sasha  had a serious surgery where the worst case scenario was that she would only walk with the aid of rear wheels.  Suffice to say after much worry on my part she had her tendon repaired and her knee cap sewn back into place. She too is limited  in short walks on a leash.

BUT they are both progressing well.

I am busy with 2 radio programmes a week to prepare and my military Blog. I have also been very busy taking advantage of the great weather and painting  the 2 decks, fence posts and gates to liven the  place up for David and Nicolas return in June for a break.

Getting prepared for the arrival of the Payne-McRobb Clan in July. I can tell you one thing we have pre arranged is a trip to Caervarlock Castle in the Border Country to attend a Medieval Fair and jousting Championship. England vs Scotland. I am sure the  grandkids will not forget that experience soon.

So folks that a quick update on lufe at Pilmuir Steading in the Highlands of Scotland.

Have a lovely SPRING where ever you may be.

Thats it for now.
