Billy No Mates Homeward bound Tour

Billy No Mates has nowhere to call home. He has just the clothes he is wearing, a backpack containing a pair of socks, an old tatty jumper and a small brown teddy bear named Hug. He is searching for a new home.
He arrives in Scotland, foot sore and weary, a band aid on his knee and blisters on his feet....
Here he is at LOCH LOMOND. Loch Lomond is the biggest freshwater lake in the UK, measuring 24 miles long and  about five miles wide.
Billy No Mates has no friends except his little  bear,  but Billy was very excited to have a photo taken next to the statue of Tom Weir, who was a great lover of the Scottish countryside, an avid climber, TV Presenter and Author.

Hello...it's been a LONG time!

Hello Sasha People!
It has been such a long time since I have spoken to you and much has changed since 2018.
I still collect Sasha although my interest has waned as I have been busy doing other things.
We decided to downsize and moved house last autumn as my husband's health was failing. I say 'downsize' we ended up selling our house in the South East and moved to Scotland ...and bought two :)
One for my son and daughter to share in Edinburgh and one for us,our house is an ex vicarage (known in Scotland as a Manse). The house is very quirky, was built in 1860, has five bedrooms,  and two cellars. We are in the process of converting one of the cellars into a living space. I want it to look completely different from the rest of the house and plan give it an industrial/urban look, so some of my Sasha dolls will be moving on to fund my plans for the house. I will be keeping a few as I hate to have a Sasha free life, I have tried it several times and missed it dreadfully. I have missed blogging too, so plan to bore you now and again as I find I spend FAR too much time on ebay and there is so much to discover in Scotland, so I plan to visit with a Sasha or two some of Scotland's landmarks and give you an insight into this wonderful country.
