Michael and Emilie outside Ennerdale Hostel

Michael and Emilie outside Ennerdale Hostel

Well it’s been glorious in Orkney for weeks now. It appears to becoming a bit of a trend that it gets wet south and we escape completely. Farmers are running out of space to put grass and the Orkney tan is giving the Med a run for its money.

There have been changes and challenges afoot in the Frier household.

Miriam has a new job in Stromness, working on the Heritage Lottery funded project in the conservation area. Good news especially having written the bid, she knows all about it! She works two days one week and three the next and on days that the childminder picks up Emilie enjoys walking to work.

Emilie is now with a new childminder but is settling well and seems happy.

Michael is busy working putting up an extension for someone in Twatt ( yes it really is called that!) and enjoying sunny days although the work is hard.

We took the opportunity to go away before all our new jobs started and went down the west coast of Scotland, down to the lakes to probably the best youth hostel in the world in Ennerdale and on to family in Cornwall and up to Devon.
