A Day Out
This week we had our friend Sylvia visiting us from Germany and on Wednesday 11th June David let me off my duties and us girls were able to go out for the day. It started off very wet so we were not very hopeful. We tried Cuil Bay first but it was just too wet […]
Fern Villa is very ‘dusty’ at the moment. We have bought some new white fluffy towels and despite several washes the fluff is still coming out of them when we shake them before folding. If we had kept all the tumble drier lint we would have had enough to stuff a mattress!
A few hours out in the sunshine
As all guests were stopping over we had the chance to make the most of the sunshine for a few hours. We picked up a sandwich at the CoOp and pulled into a layby on the loch side en-route for a quick lunch. Then on for a few more miles to Kinlochlaich Garden Centre. […]

Our local upholsterer came today and gave us a very reasonable quote for having the lounge chairs and sofas reupholstered. They are going to be done in 3 different fabrics which will all compliment each other. They are going to be done a piece at a time and should all be completed by Christmas. Looking […]
