Rolfing is not painful…

We have some new additions on the hill… this is 2 year old Malachy having a bit of hip work – under supervision of our winter lodger, Charlot.

Apologies to everyone patiently waiting for sessions.

This week brought another three plus feet of snow, no power for 2 days and had us snowed in for the third time this year.  Skis next winter for sure.

Please bear with me as I try to catch up as best I can!

The BRC Clinic at Waulkmill on Saturday 27th Feb is cancelled due to weather.

I’ve had 36 hours of constant snow here so not actually sure I can get out either!

Commiserations to all of you who qualified for the Regionals and can’t get there because of the weather.

Stay warm and well everyone.

Scottish Farmers

are worth their weight in gold!

Many thanks to ours who ploughed the entire track up the hill which has allowed me to at least get the landy out, after helping police tow lorries up over the Coachford brae.  Friends who are farmers have been out every night on the A96 helping pull vehicles up hills.  And only for a word of thanks.

Please buy Scottish at the butcher or Supermarket and show them some real appreciation!

I now have a mile hike to the landy but can at least get out.

I hope you are managing to get food and more importantly water to your 4 leggeds.

If you’ve any spare energy try and get some food out to the birds too!

Stay warm and well!

I hope you and all your four leggeds are coping with this weather!

We’ve had over 3 feet in total up at the top of the hill which has compacted down to a good two plus feet.

I will be taking the week off!
