So as I touched upon earlier I had a few days off and headed up North with Mr C for a few days break. We had a great time and the Scottish landscapes did not disappoint - every corner you turned looked completely different from the next and although there was no snow in Fort Augustus where we were based, the Canal and many nearby Lochs were totally frozen over and looked stunning. We had a lovely little house which overlooked the canal and locks and used this as a base for going on walks (I managed 15 miles one day, quite an achievement for someone with legs as short as mine!), we also drove across to Skye, around Loch Ness (no Monster sightings), and to Glen Affric which was a total winter wonderland. It was great to get away but my poor laptop charger was lost at some point on our travels, not so good but all is not lost, Mr C bought a shiny new one and we are up and running once again, whoop whoop.

Almost go squished by a lorry at the side of the road taking this sunset photo!
