A Castle in the Sky

In March 2013, after years of talking about it we eventually sell up and move out of the city with our 2 year old, Gracie. We both grew up in the countryside and this is what we want for our daughter. So we swap a 2 bed flat in London for a small country pile on the west coast of Scotland that needs a lot of work. I've done a bit of interior design and my partner, Ed has a good knowledge of the outdoors – but we're on a tight budget and we've both got a lot to learn. It's a life time's project and this is a record of our adventure…

Boom (Jun 17)

Just before heading to bed last night … boom … something crashed into the house, or that’s what it felt like.  I ran up.  Ed ran down.   As soon as I got to our bedroom I guessed  – and as I opened the door the thick dust confirmed it.


From the comfort of our bed for the last few months, we’ve been monitoring the length of a crack in the ceiling.  Was it getting worse?  Apparently so.   It’s just as well Ed didn’t get the ladders out to investigate as the plaster’s incredibly thick and you really wouldn’t want any of it falling on your head.


It’s taken both of us the whole day to clear up.   That’s 2 down hopefully no more to go…
