A wonderful World of Disney style start to the day. Ten young deer standing in a line in the field by the crossroads. The early morning sun rising behind them. They're completely unconcerned by our presence. We stand with the PON's and stare. The deer look back. One of those simple, joyful moments.
Hogmanay chaos. The kilt unwrapped and pressed. Sporran found, then lost. A lantern set out in the courtyard ready to guide travellers to the door. Logs for the fire. A 'wee dram' decanted for the magic hour.
To one and all a wish from everyone here at the Rickety Old Farmhouse for a peaceful, prosperous and healthy 2015. Whatever the New Year brings may you always have a sheepdog ( or a brace of them ) to guard your door .
