The view from the porch. Perfect.
Count the Midge bites - not troubled all week, bitten 18 times loading the car!
Despite the fact we took a laptop with us and that the cottage had internet access, I did a pretty good job (with one notable exception) of disconnecting from real life. No emails, texts, tweets, updates and all those other things that usually seem so important.
What a load of hassle picking up this wee girl. Not that she was bothered though.
Great little game,
Lastly, it was my birthday while we were away, so a couple nerdly gifts were waiting for me. Oddly, I found myself taking a year off instead of adding one. For some reason, I was adamant that I was 35 this year, and it wasn't until an old school friend got in touch and reminded me that we were only 34! Result!
Second time that's happened, when I was 27, I thought I was only 26!
