So much for regular updates!

Well Harvey has been coming along fine, settling in well and we've had him almost a year now.
The festive season was a quiet one as was the early months of 2018.
In April, my two brother in laws, Stuart Brand and Mick Collins, joined me for a long planned trip doing the North Coast 500 around the North Scottish coast line on our motor bikes over a long weekend. I had the easy part, Mick started the journey North from Kent on the Wednesday, stopping with Stuart in Garstang, Lancaster, on the Wednesday night, they then both made their way North to ours for Thursday night before we set of for Inverness on the Friday Morning. A great trip made even better by the lack of rain (only had about 2 hours of rain on the Sunday evening). It was so good we plan to go back and do it again in reverse in 2019!
May saw us back darn Sath again for the first wedding of the year when our Niece, Vicky, & Elliot tied the knot in Weymouth.
June took us back across the Irish sea for this year's Celtic Challenge, (Scots V Irish) at Benone, again Scotland retained the Quaich.
July left me and the dog on our own as Jane visited the other side of the world, Brisbane, Sydney and the Barrier reef. Taking advantage of free board out there, with her youngest sister, out on a work secondment for 3 months.She had also decided that retirement was due for her and although she finished the school term at the end of June, her official retirement didn't start till mid August.
August we're traipsing back down the country for the second wedding of the year with Catherine and her Elliot tying the knot in Bexleyheath.
September, the SPKA AGM in St. Andrews at the start of the month then the last long weekend, we spent just South of Torness Power Station at a nice quiet site right on the beach, Harvey loved it! Unfortunately, our return trip home on the Monday ended up with a recovery that eventually got us and the MH back to base with a dicky diesel pump.
October first week, Simon and I were away to Borkum Island, the most Westerly Island in the Frisian group just off of Germany's north coast. A flight from Edinburgh to Schiphol, train North to Eemshaven in the Netherlands and the ferry over to Borkum. There we spent the week traipsing back and forward to the beach for the Kite Buggy World Championships. The last 2 weeks being in recovery mode!
Well that's us up to date again, let's see what the coming months have to offer us!
