December the Third……………To the Peedie Chippie for our Friday chippy tea…….The Finstown Christmas tree lights had been switched on..…..And the lamp-post decorations are lit too……Ooooooo…….Aaaaaa…….. Chritsmaaaaaas!

December the Fourth………….Mike (who does the cooking) had his booster jab……Was feeling a bit groggy……Bunged tatties and sausages (Linda McCartney) in the oven…..Heated up beans…….Poured beans into tatties……..Easy tea for groggy people!

December the Fifth………..Mike’s got a new toy………As well as taking photos, he’s recording sounds……..That is – when I’m not talking!

December the Sixth…………….A vole-hole in the grass by the track…….Good to see, as we see less and less of them……..What we do see more of on that path is stoat traps…….Aye…..Well….

December the Seventh………………Ta-Dah!!!……Robert’s new C.D. arrived!!!!…….To be fair – Robert and Alison Krauss…..Who are equally groovy……But Robert…..Is Robert…….

December the Eighth……………Are they Dragon’s eggs?………….No, just bits of glass, in a cranny in the garden…..Cheery though, ain’t they? 

December the Ninth……………Dawn over Kirkwall…………….
