The first time, ever I saw...

Good luck, HL. And don't attach too much significance to the lost necklace. As the other person said, it did its job, and who knows who else it may inspire? Promise yourself to buy another once you get to Skye permanently.

Barney from Swithiod in agreement
You`ll be fine, y`know, trust me. Tho, if it`s rain ye like, ye should`ve tried Orkney....Invite the neebors roond for a cocktail night, ye`d be surprised at what folks can come up wi!

So..you've never been to Skye until a few weeks ago. Living there will be mightily different from visiting - an obvious point but one perhaps which could do with making. Don't get me wrong - I wish you all the luck in the world - especially as I may well be doing the same thing in a few weeks' time. As for your necklace - well, sometimes these things have a way of finding their way back to you. If not, well, maybe it did do its job - who's to say? And there's nothing wrong with knitting. You could do a lot worse! ;-)

Great luck to you in your new life. The lost necklace just meant you have to return to your new island as you belong there . :)

I was lucky enough to visit Skye in 2004, my first trip to Scotland. It was October and the light was amazing. I think you have the right attitude about your monumental life change - there will be days when you wonder if you made the right decision and then something will happen that lets you know it was right! Your writing is beautiful and it made me feel like I was back on the Island. I wish I could visit Scotland more often or was brave enough to think about picking up and moving there - maybe some day. Keep up the writing and watching for the weather - the future will be amazing.

I am sorry you lost your necklace. As it was probably me that made it, I would be happy to replace it for you free of charge. It would not be exactly the same obviously but I would try and pick a stone that was as close to the original as possible, You can get in touch with me via my website skyecuillinmarbles.co.uk or pop into our shop in Portree (Kilts & Krafts) next time you are in Skye.

I have to agree with the first comment, the necklace served its purpose and has moved on. I hope you have a fantastic time when you get there. I have fortunatley been to Skye every year since 2001, I love the island, it has a magical mystery that grabs hold of you as soon as you get onto the island. Hopefully I will be following in your footsteps real soon Wendy from West Yorkshire
