A rope in case...

When I was a teen in the 70's I discovered a series of books by Lillian Beckwith.  My teen mind fantasised about living on a croft in the highlands of Scotland just like her,  and I just love all of Beckwith's books.
 
Today I discovered I have actually become Lillian.
 
 
Well I live in Canada, not Scotland.  I have a hobby farm not a croft.  But as I went out to the horses today with a rope tied around my waist just in case I needed to lead one of them back into the paddocks I stopped in my tracks.  I have become Lillian Beckwith.  Then I looked down...
 
 
 

 
Wellies. I have become Lillian.
 
 
(Lillian Beckwith was born in England and moved to an island off Skye.  Her books are charming, funny, and an easy read of simpler times.)

  3. I wear something similar and Lillian sounds like a girl that I should read more about! :-)
