I have been busy the past week re-painting our hallway and stairwell. It was a green and red colour but I have opted for a lighter colour on the top half which has brightened it up no end. We also had some of the wooden sprockets replaced outside as they were totally rotten.

We had a dusting of snow last night and a few heavy flurries this morning but didn't really amount to much but the roads and pavements were very icy today. The children had stayed overnight in Edinburgh with their Aunt and Uncle so I nipped along to Loch of Lowes to watch the birdies. The squirrel event I mentioned a few blogs ago had been cancelled due to the weather.
The goldeneye duck is a diving duck and is a winter visitor
Cheeky red squirrel
A brambling and finches
I've said it before but you can easily lose track of time just sitting and watching the wildlife at Loch of the Lowes.
Yesterday the children and I and my mum went through to Edinburgh to meet my youngest brother and his wife as we were going to see the 'Nutcracker' at the Festival Theatre and very enjoyable it was as well. Here are just a few random photos taken on our day out.
