A Very Merry Christmas from Scotland In View

Christmas card designed and created by Lucy

Dear Family and Friends,
We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
With very best wishes,
Cameron & Elaine

This Christmas picture was designed by our Nephew and Niece’s daughter, Lucy, and it won the Broxburn Primary School Year 4 Christmas Card design competition. Very well done to Lucy.

Lucy, aged 8, has been taking lessons from Elaine (Senior Commercial Manager) and was insistent that her brilliant competition winning picture came with the following statement: © Copyright Lucy Images 2010.

    Best wishes to you both and to your families at this (chilly) time of year. We hope to see you both fit and well and out ‘Munro bagging’ before the New Year.

    A wonderful Christmas card. Does sound like Lucy already has a head for business and has been taking lessons from someone! and has some artistic skills to be proud of.

    We wish you all at Corpach a Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for 2011.
    The silence after the 21 Dec blog was paramount to suspecting that due to circumstances, the pair of you were retreating to the civilised comforts at 19 Caledonian Road. Comforting to know you are both safe and well. Looking forward to your 2011 visit in January.
    Love, Dad and Agnes x

      Dear Dad and Agnes,

      Merry Christmas to you both.

      We will probably be heading towards the Cairngorms in a few days time. It would, however, be great if we could defrost our water tanks before we depart though! We actually had a couple of 12 volt heating probes fitted to the fresh and grey water tanks when we bought the ‘van to help mitigate against the tanks freezing. However, we have never needed to use them until now – and now they don’t appear to be working. I became suspicious when I was turning them on but was not seeing any additional current being drawn from the ‘van battery. I borrowed a voltmeter from my Dad here in Corpach and we confirmed that there was no voltage drop across the switch. The problem is that to diagnose the fault further it will probably require me to crawl under the ‘van, which is absolutely filthy from the salty roads. Not a prospect that I’m looking forward to!

      Anyway, Elaine and I send our love to you both, and are looking forward to visiting you in mid-January.

      Very best wishes,

      Elaine and Cameron
