Hi Popsicles.

Sorry there hasn’t been much on here for a bit Squirt – Mummy said you were looking and if I hasn’t changed I’d hate to think you might have been disappointed.  The truth is that I haven’t been up to much.  Lots of boring work is all I have been doing since I hurt my hand.  Its been getting better and better every day so hopefully I’ll be back in action in no time.

I mentioned last week that I thought that Spring might be on its way…….well I may have spoken too soon – it was snowing at the weekend and its pretty cold.  Its strange though because even though its cold some of the birds like the Curlews and the noisy Oyster Catchers have all moved away from the shore lines and they are now in the fields.


The Curlew is the largest wading bird in Briton and feeds mainly on worms in the fields and all sorts of worms and mussels and small clams at the sea shore.  They blend in very well with there surroundings (its called camouflage) so there can take a bit of spotting.  They make a really beautiful noise.  Most of the wading birds make distinctive noises.

You can tell I don’t have much on when I start telling you about random birds.  Anyway, I know you are a little sponge so maybe you’ve learnt something.

Pia MacLeod………..I DO LOVE YOU! XXX

Dinner at the castle

Hi Little Girl. I hope your feeling better. Try and make sure you eat Squirt. Food gives you energy and you need energy to get better. I had a good meal tonight – I went to Scott and Laura’s for dinner. We had chicken lasagna with a baked potato. It was delicious. Fleet and Boris were there too. As usual Boris was doing the biggest tat tats but then Scott and Daddy were too. Must have been Laura’s good cooking.


Hope you have a good weekend Squirt. I look forward to hearing from you tomorrow. Give Mummy a big hug for me.


Love you xxx

Is it Spring time?

Hi Squirt. Hope your feeling better and I hope you and Mummy got a good nights sleep. Yesterday I was walking Through the gardens at Skibo and I noticed some Insects buzzing around. I watched them for a while as there aren’t that many insects around over the winter time. When I was walking back to the car the sun felt warm on the side of my face and the birds were all in song. It was then it dawned on me……was this the first day of Spring? Today is much the same – birds singing and blue sky. I like the challenges of winter and the sense of sanctury and the end of each day when all the jobs are done and you can sit in front of the fire, but, this year,  I am looking forward to the Spring.

That’s how the weekend has been Squirt. Had a nature walk on Saturday in the morning which was nice. There were 2 little girls but the weather was so cold that they didn’t last too long. On Saturday afternoon was spent doing some cleaning, playing with Pebbles and Tammy, and watching some rugby. And today has been much the same – kinda boring really.

It sounds like your weekend has been much more exciting than mine – seeing some horses and hair cuts.

I’m looking forward to hearing what your up to this week.  I’m sure Mummy has lots planned.

Hope your smiling!  Love you.

Another wintery day

Went for a bike ride today. It was part of work. Remember Chris (you used to call him Georgous Chris, I think he liked it), well Chris and I rode our bike around part of the course that we are going to use for the event in May. We had to cross the River Brora and Daddy fell in! It was really tricky and there was even ice in the river! Below is a video of Chris crossing the river and he nearly make it but he had to put his foot down – getting over the ice was the tricky bit.  You can see the blue ice in the foreground.

I shouldn’t have laughed at him he did a much better job than I did! It was very cold riding back to Brora.  I couldn’t feel my fingers and toes!

Love you Squirt  xxx

Its Bindi!!!



 I had Bindi at Skibo today (as usual) and it was kinda quiet so I too a few photos and this is one of them.  Mummy sent me a photo of you in the snow – looked like you were having great fun.


I went to Grandmas and Grandpas today and tried to take a photo of them for you but Grandma wasn’t feeling well and wouldn’t let me but don’t worry, I’ll try again tomorrow.  Charlie has had a haircut and he looks really funny.  He really is a tiny dog underneath all that hair!


Stay warm and I’ll speak to you soon.
