It is no secret that I coud happily work 16 hours a day. I love what I do and have more items on my to do list than I will ever finish and I simply could let it all consume me.
However, there are 4 people and 2 cats who like to remind me that work can not be my life. For however many hours I could happily sit in my office plugging away, they would like to spend 3x as many with their mama. Sometimes, I resent the intrusion. Sometimes, I welcome it. That's just the way it is.
On Saturday, with deadlines looming and a strict order to do some filming, we headed up the hills to Castle Campbell in Dollar. It is a site out of a fairy tale for sure, with (i kid you not) 2 creeks called the "Burn of Care" and the "Burn of Sorrow". It was even called "Castle Gloom".
But gloomy it was not. I love those particularly blinding autumn days where the sun shines and the colours are so bright they make your eyes water. I could wander and putter for hours.
Kevin is more of a fan of the castle than I am. In fact, I am terrified by steps like these vvvvvvvvvvv
And so we mixed it up, a longish walk (with cocoa breaks) and a wander around the castle.
But, it wasn't all play. I did manage to make a small film of the trip. Films aren't really my thing, and so please forgive my first humble attempts.
