Living in the country can be difficult sometimes. I miss my parents and my city-dwelling friends. I miss films being in the cinema for longer than a fortnight. I miss Wahaca, Domino's and getting a Chinese takeaway any time of day I want one. But on days like these, where we can walk Brodie round the edges of a loch, watching her chase grouse as Mike and I talk for hours, it's pretty difficult to remember what it is I love so much about the city.
