Abandoning the children with my mum, Andrew and I made a sneaky trip to view the Cairngorms, breathe in the Abernethy forest and . . . build beds at Braenedin.
6 hours later we had 2 king size beds, 2 singles and a bunk bed assembled. Plus we squeezed in a delicious dinner at Andersons in Boat of Garten to celebrate that we were still talking to each other.
I hadn't been to the house since the summer and I was blown away. AW Laing and the expert tradesmen have done an amazing job but more admiration for them in a separate post.
Self catering cottage here we come.
We have flooring, fitted appliances, working bathrooms, heat (plus a NASA airsource control room), hot water... all the mod cons! Next time we'll bring mugs.
