    Sex Change

    Hi Lorry,
    Not unless Skye is a suburb of Brisbane and you have changed sex in the last 30 years without telling me!

    LOL!!!! Yes, there was an extortionate Skye bridge toll for about 11 years. When we moved here it was £4.70 each way for a car and about £45 for a lorry - no wonder delivery companies charged so much to bring things over here. Anyway after a lot of protests by locals, some were fined and/or even went to prison for refusing to pay the charge (they used to drive "tandem" behind another vehicle to get away with it), the charge was suddenly deemed illegal and was removed on New Years Eve 3 years ago! Hooray!!!! Mind you, some companies still want to charge extra for delivery here, even for normal mail, which is a complete con!

    Rant over!

    Hey, I've got a brother called Ian who lives in Stevenage - is that you, bruv?

    Skye

    I know Skye, it’s not like Stevenage!

    The last time I was there I hade to use the ferry for the 200yd dash , they were building the bridge at the time and then made a complete mess of the whole thing by an excessive charge. Admittedly most of the people I saw on my crossing were Americans, all warring their cardboard labels just in case they were separated: or at least that’s what I assumed?
    Lovely part of the world, I will get back there one day.

    Regards,

    I..

    Thanks everybody for your warm welcome.

    Ian, I moved here 4 years ago from Hitchin, so I know your home turf very well!

    Janice, you're right in saying Skye is a beautiful part of the country. I run a small B&B here as well as my crafting, and our guests often tell us how lucky we are to live here, and they are absolutely right. When I reach the magic "25 posts" you'll maybe see how the scenery has a big influence on my crafting style.

    Hi

    Hi Lorry ,

    I’m not crafty, I just take photographs for people like Harrods, Harvey Nik’s, Lloyd’s, Lola Rose, Dower & Hall, John Lewis, ect, ect.
    I give my knowledge, for what it is worth, freely. I try to improve the images that my fellow crafters have taken by encouraging them to learn a bit about photography and the camera they are using.
    Please feel free to ask a question whenever you have a problem. Oh and by the way, welcome.

    Regards,
    I..
