Thursday

Well I am writing on my new computer, having spent a day uploading and trying to work it out.  How fast this world works, ordered on Monday from Dell and it arrived Tuesday.  Security set up as well, as my address book was hacked in between, so apologies to anyone who receives spam!  The article below spotted in the Guardian, sharply emphasises a way of life suddenly gone sour, why did all these people move, the beauty of Island life cut short by economic depression probably, we are all tourists and though the thought of living in such beautiful surroundings appeals, you would have to be in love with a solitary life with bad weather as a companion.





Derelict houses in the Outer Hebrides

  1. Such dereliction Thelma, very sad. Also one wonders how these people settled away from their island life.

    1. Well they had no capital if they could not sell their houses. The good furniture and colour on the walls point to building something out of nothing, building a home in the 'wilderness'
