Tattie House – Round 2!

Filed under: General, Roof, Structural — tattiehouse @ 11:42

Well time really has run away from us since our return over a month ago! We’ve settled straight back into caravan life and been making good progress with the house. There have been a couple of changes since we were here last, mainly that we’re now both in our thirties, happily married and we have the addition of a little dog called Annie to keep us even busier this year. We were lucky to be able to hibernate for winter and spent most of our time either with our families, working on the garden, looking after pigs 7, 8, 9 and 10 or pondering on and planning for this year’s stint at Tattie House. We had plenty of time to think about last years stint, what we were and were not happy with and what we intended to do to make this year more productive and fulfilling for us. We are both feeling very strong right now; our priorities are firlmy in check, attitudes refreshed and we’re so well rested after the winter at home that jumping back in with both feet has been great….

More technical blogs from Ian to come and also the launch of the boat. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some pictures…

    • Hi Colin,

      Good to hear from you. When you heading over to Rum.

      Hope all is well in Indigo.

      Yorkshires richest man (no, not Malcolm or Eddie Healey), Richard Nelson is over in about 3 weeks. Sure I’ll hear all the news off him.

      Keep in touch….

      Cheers
      Ian
