Another Year

I trust you all had a lovely time over the holidays, can't believe it's the 6th of January already.  I haven't really been up to much, had family over Christmas and guests between and over New Year and my mother in law has been staying for a while and goes home next week.  The year in Blairgowrie started with the annual fun run and by all accounts they had their biggest turnout yet and we have managed to get up to the ski slopes at Glenshee.  They had quite a bit of snow in December then it went very mild so they lost most of it but they had another good snowfall this week.  Compared to the past two winters it is quite warm at the moment but we have had some horrendous stormy weather that has caused quite a bit of upset over the country.  People are starting to think about their holidays now so bookings are starting to come in. Fingers crossed for a good year despite all the doom and gloom in the economy.

Happy New Year! I am wondering what kind of bird is in the photo? It is not one we have over here in Canada (at least not out west).

Happy New Year to you. They are snow buntings, there are lots in the car park at Glenshee as they get lots of scraps of food from people having their lunch whilst having a break from ski-ing - they are lovely to watch.
