New Year, New Decade....

And it began with a beautiful sunrise this morning at 0910 this morning...  and then the sky developed the most amazing clouds, a whole array of them!

Approaching from South, over Hoy....

Over the byres.....

Hoy Sound....

And in parallel this amazing cloud.... all moving quite fast as it was a bit breezy.

Button, of course, was oblivious to it all....

So from us to you, wishing you a happy, peaceful and healthy new year and into the new decade.


  1. The roaring 20's ?? Happy New Year.

    1. It would be fun if it was - as long as it's not before a 30's depression! But a fun decade would be wonderful...

  2. Happy new year. All the very best to and Buttons

  3. Hello Sian, and Happy New Year! I've been enjoying your blog for years, and have wanted to communicate with you, but I don't really know how. I don't have a URL, so I am writing to you as anonymous. My name is Bonni Gilley, and my roots are in Crookshouse (yes, I'm a Johnston). At your convenience, I'd so appreciate a response from you, and perhaps you could could tell me how best to communicate with you a bit more privately. Thank you so much, Sian. I enjoy your work very much. My email address is
