|Now that the Winter Solstice is past (21 Dec) and, with it the Pagan festival of Yule, the days are becoming ever so slightly longer and the nights just that little bit shorter once again. Of course we won't really start to notice it for a few more weeks but it's happening, none-the-less.
It's been a gorgeous day today. Bright sunshine, little or no wind, and clear skies. We took a walk out with the dog, up through Crow Wood, along the forest road, then down to the Network Centre and back home again. Some wonderful views across the village, the bay and out towards Arran.
I gather there are still a few tickets available for the Football Club Ceilidh on Thursday evening. If you're still without a ticket don't leave it much longer as no money will be taken on the door. See Nonnie, Lachie or Audrey.
There're a number of people staying in the village at the moment. Some of these are regular visitors or are back to see family but there are also a few who are experiencing their first Carradale Christmas. If the Ceilidh isn't your sort of thing then don't forget there's also the Hogmanay Party at The Glen bar on Saturday.
And finally for today, what to do with all those left-overs and assorted bits and pieces in your cupboard or fridge?
