Here are some highlights of our second year living in Fife, Scotland,

A day trip to the beautiful village of Killin in February.

We opened our gardens in aid of the local library and Kinghorn in Bloom in June 2017.

In early July we enjoyed a hot break in Crete.

 

 

 

 

 

August was a wonderful month of memories. The family gathered to celebrate Dad’s 90th birthday at Stoke Bruerne where we enjoyed walking in the sunshine, a lovely meal and a short canal trip all together.

Then in September we walked over the new Queensferry Crossing between Edinburgh Septand Fife over the Forth.

In October we met up with friends from BedfordshireBanburghOct

at Banburgh, Northumberland for the day.

 

 

 

 

and I mustn’t forget my husband’s first attempt at makingAug

Cornish Pasties. Impressive eh?

DSCN07Kinghorn, Fife and Scotland continue to inspire us and we have had many visits from friends and family from Bedfordshire. After much persuasion from Kinghorn people, who we have come to know and love, I continued my story ‘From Redundancy to Rejuvenation’ and brought out a combined version (Paperback in September), loosely telling of our move to Fife with a mixture of fantasy thrown in. It’s called ‘The Healing Paths of Fife.‘ (If you read it then I’d be chuffed if you’d review it too)

Although we are both involved in Kinghorn life, it is my hubby who excels himself in the Rotary, as a Community Councillor, in the library committee, and as ground crew for Kinghorn in Bloom. He is now curling too. I must take a photo of him sometime and a friend says he’s now an honorary Scot! An accolade indeed 🙂

On my other blog https//www.dianamj.wordpress.com I am celebrating contemporary Scottish authors, but otherwise this will be my last post on this blog until 2018. Sounds crazy doesn’t it.

I can only wish you a happy Christmas and a peaceful 2018 to you all, and pray that the unrest in the world begins to be dispersed as people realise that it is much better getting on with each other. How wonderful that would be!

    Lovely 2017 photos, Diana. Looks like 2017 has been good to you. Love seeing Scotland — inspiring to me, too. Must be a joy living there. May you and yours have a blessed Christmas and New Year and I join with you in prayers for peace in the world. We need it more than ever. God bless — love and hugs.
