Nights are drawing in…

The kids go back to school tomorrow in some parts which accounts for the tardy Roundup as I’ve been in a flurry of pencil cases and new shoes. It never gets any easier. But what’s everyone else been up to? Elizabeth left her kitchen for a trip to Unst which really makes me want to […]

End of Term

[…]
