Heading home ! A wet overnight journey and the sad search for the missing hill waker continues this weekend .

I travelled back from a busy 7 days with the Grandkids. It is only after a few days that you get into the routine with young children as you get older! It was some trip the snow seemed to follow me and poor Yvettes half marathon was called off due the Reading Course being under snow. It is great to see the signs of Spring and the birds busy the flowers coming up. How much I appreciate this as you get older.

The highlight was time with both Lexi and Ellie Skye and what a laugh we had they are great kids and at an age where life is fun.

Lexi had her play “Jungle Book ” at school and it was a magic hour at the Stoke Row school. The kids sang danced and loved the afternoon there was some hard work in it🌈🌈 for the kids and teachers !

I had some great walks with Flo their black lab and how I miss a dog and the company. I left early last night at 0200 in the morning it was heartbreaking saying good bye 💔 Lexi especially as she takes it so hard and Ellie is so different. They are such special kids and made my time with them do special. I will miss the dressing up getting ready for school

The games getting hammered by a 4 and 7 year old and the big hugs and special moments thanks Yvette Lexi and Ellie xx

The roads were quite but rain followed me the whole way. In Scotland the Borders has little snow left but as I reached the Highlands there is still plenty of snow about and wet drooping Cornices with some snow forecast next week.

The Torridon Team and RAF Lossiemouth MRT are going out this weekend searching for the sadly still missing walker from Nairn Mr Gibson and it is easy to forget that this sadness still continues. I hope they find him and give the family closure thanks to all for their huge efforts. Words are never enough ?

I have to find a car after mine has had it and catch up with all my admin etc since I have been away.

The house is quite after my trip and it looks a great day for weather ahead .

I should be on the hills or bike but have to get sorted .

It’s catch up time
