|Face 3 of 29 Faces & Sketch 6 of 75|
Today, we've had gales, blue skies and sunshine, rain and I'm sure it has even tried to snow a little. I knew it was going to be cold up this far north and I swear I'm not complaining, but I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever feel warm again! I just can't wait until we get the fireplace sorted out so we can have those roaring logs fires we've been dreaming of!

We picked the right gap in the clouds to get the dogs to our new favourite beach - Strathy - which is about 8 miles drive away, for a good run about. Back home now and it's bucketing down again. We were told that up here doesn't get as much rain as the west coast of Scotland because of the mountains in the Highlands or something creating their own weather system with the Gulf Stream - a bit technical for me - but anyway, I'm yet to be convinced as there's been plenty of sky juice in the last three weeks!

S has to drive to Glasgow tonight and will be away for the next 10 days finishing off the training for his job and sitting a final exam (which he'll ace!) So, it's going to me just me and the dogs rattling round the house for a while. He'll be away on my birthday on 9th February so I'll guess I'll just throw myself a combined birthday/pity party!! Kidding - I think the whole celebratory aspect of birthdays stopped once we hit 40. Maybe we'll start celebrating again every year we make it past 70!

Anyway, today is day 6 of the 75 day sketch challenge and I'm also linking it to face 3 of 29 Faces. Can anyone clear one thing up for me though - do we need to add our blogs to Mr Linky on 29 Faces every day? I'm not sure how that works?
