Oh I'm so thrilled! It's simply the best news ever!
Just when I had given up hope of ever seeing my favourite sofa again, it has magically reappeared in the Torridon cottage.
(Gail tells me it was there all along, upside down in another room while the renovation work was taking place.)
I'll be honest, travelling tires me these days, and aside from the occasional gentle stroll by the loch, I've barely shifted from the sofa since we arrived here on Friday.
I mean, who knows, it might disappear again if not carefully guarded.
Gail tells me that my friends will want to see how the cottage is looking now that the renovation work is all but complete. She thinks you might not be so interested in more photos of me relaxing on an old piece of furniture.
Well, here's a wee peek at the new kitchen at least.
And from the front garden you can see the big new windows and the not yet quite complete porch.
I must apologise for neglecting my blog friends this weekend. When one's assistant is so preoccupied with duster, mop and vacuum cleaner etc. (most unusual...) what's a pup to do?
Finally on Sunday afternoon, Gail recovered from her cleaning and tidying mania. She drove me across to the village of Shieldaig on the other side of Loch Torridon. While I puzzled over the local graffiti, Gail consumed a medicinal ice cream, and then we both enjoyed another short but scenic loch-side saunter.
Now back to my sofa...
