Season's Greetings!

Whatever your are celebrating just now, I hope you are having a good time, with family, friends, or like me, in quiet solitude.

Well quiet is relative!  Gales still battering the shores.  Storm Babs is on her way out, but Storm Conor is due tomorrow and he's even meaner!  Expecting wind speeds here of 80+mph.  Eeek!

Hens & Button are bearing up.  Button by mostly sleeping.  I'd post a picture but a black cat asleep on a dark blanket doesn't show very well!

Anyway, back to the season.... I've posted this YouTube film from the Winter Solstice in 2010 every year since. I make no apology. I love it!


  1. No apology required - it's beautiful!

  2. At least here you are not in solitude, Sian. Many of us like to visit you at this Small Island you've built.
    Happy Holidays and a fantastic New Year for all Graemsay !

  3. Wow all I can say is 'beautiful'. Those expanses of virgin snow. It is all eerily, coldly magnificent.

    Can't imagine what it is like to live there. A special place.

    Hoping the weather improves fast.

    Quiet and solitude sounds great to me. Hope you can get outside soon. Now I know why it was so important to button down hatches!!

  4. Greetings from a windy Eday! Conor is giving us a real battering this morning. Hoping it will pass over this arvo!

    James and Dee

  5. Yep, cats - we so, so love them and they, ..... are there own selves-is, every time, all the time. Don't ya just love them for it "(or maybe I'm just daft coz i adore and love Megs for her very contrarinous) xxxx.\
