Time spent on QISMA is seldom wasted.

A few trips to QISMA this week to.....get things done. The winter job lust is starting to shrink. She is only 8 miles away so easy to pop over.

Other than that it has been a week of swimming, for me, up yo 2000 metres now in a pool that you think crowded if there are 5 swimmers in and some marathon sessions of.........

It finished on TV over 10 years ago but seems so current. A credit to the creator. Perfect winter afternoon viewing. Yes...we are vegging out... #official

Above the snow line

we now know that's where we some 300 yards.

We're up here because it's quiet with fantastic views. The house is so warm .. even with the winds howling round us. Hey...we have one set of neighbours and the wind farms for company. And... and ...the postman can find us. He is our new best friend. 

For those who have asked about LJ and so many have been in touch to wish him well, thanks for all your messages. He is on the mend.

All ashore who are going ashore ...oh that's us!

It flooded here last winter. Badly. As it's our first winter we decided to be cautious and rent a cottage for the worst 3 months. We moved in last Saturday. It's quiet and secluded with great views over Upper Lough Erne. Gets every bit of sunshine and all the wind. But very warm. 10 miles from QISMA and 5 from the village. Alistair is down at QISMA now getting a 'fix'. LJ and I just chilling after our off lead walk to the wind farm and back.  LJ doesn't know it yet but he has an operation scheduled for Monday. Removal of fatty lump that will soon impede his back leg. Time for it to go but another worry to add to world peace and thin thighs etc etc. Being in the cottage means there is room for the dreaded cone which he will probably wear for two weeks. His turning circle here is a tad bigger. The biggest shock will be no breakfast for him on Monday morning.
