It is looking good so far! I like the sea view.

I love what you have done with your 'About' picture. You are the same age as my daughter. Alan Alda is 81? That must make me...oh!

That ship is enormous! I regularly log in to the Oban Webcam and watch which ships/boats tie up on the quay and I have a link that tells me when a boat is expected to arrive or to leave, I spend hours watching. That brownie looks tasty.

Pretty Snowdrops. I like all the above mentioned things too, except the old pewter.

I found the same link as Eileen did but she beat me to it. Never mind, it is an interesting article anyway. You made me smile several times in this post Anne, thank you.

I have never, yet, read any PGW. I wonder if I shall manage to do so this year?

No freezer! Not much at all in the way of kitchen gadgets. I have survived without them for almost a quarter of a century.

I have never attempted soda bread since I hear that it doesn't last more than one day and, since I live alone, I need my bread to last for a week at least.

That would make an interesting looking sock.

Oh thank you, a gorgeous Eider duck, my favourite water bird! I am impressed by the front of Rialto, they have put Panini without the ubiquitous apostrophe which is totally unnecessary anyway since a single is a Panino. The mirror is splendid and I enjoyed the hauling of the boat into the yard.

I love Cullen Skink, as much as I love Stornoway Black Pudding, especially if it has a Scallop or two on top of it.

I like your title, very apt. I shall investigate it in my area but I don't hold much hope.

Ooh, lots of lovely links, thank you. I have bookmarked this page so that I don't lose it. I have a hankering to make more socks so I shall be investigating soon.

In the ordinary way of things I would avoid this book because I have a morbid fear of horses but your description of it has me intrigued, not least because I am a great fan of John Clare's poetry and I suspect that I might find an echo here.

I don't have it! My parents had spent time in England and preferred that accent so I missed out on the Welsh lilt.

I used to have a wine cooling jug, bought in Provence in the early eighties. I expect my last husband took it with him to America, which is a shame because it was visually pleasing.

Ooh, Lucinda's work appeals to me. Thank you for the links. I wonder how Alun pronounces his name? As a Welshwoman I would say Alin, if his name was spelled Alyn I would say Alun. Quirky, yes?

I own the Kashmir Shawl and like to read it at least once a year; it is one of those books that will never leave me. I gave The Jewel Garden to my daughter, after I had speed-read it. Frankly, anything by Mr Don is good, in my eyes. It seems that we are in accord.
