Bad enough going to bed with a knackered shoulder and not sleeping but waking up with a full blown cold, in the ‘summer’, pretty depressing. And it was raining!! With George here there is no time to hang about so out and at it. It was grey and wet but looked promising so we decided to extend the water treatment shed, I’d made a start so it was ready to go.
The clouds cleared the sun came out, so did the midgie and we got stuck in. It started life as a temporary shed but now it is permanent, we have three tanks two with sand filters and in line cartridge filters and for the first time in ten years the water test has had a pass. But the larder has not enough head so this extension is to house the larder tanks. They are coming with Kevin tomorrow. We finished late after noon and very pleased we were with it. Just a few adjustments to make but all in all it will be very good to have it all under cover.
After all that I had to take L to dry Harbour and was not surprised to see rain clouds all around, on my return George was waiting to tell me he could not find the lamb I’d asked him to go and look for. we’ll have a try tomorrow and hopefully the Sea eagle hasn’t pinched it.
Just to finish off we had a bit of butchering to do so we headed up to the larder where we found the alarms going off on the fridge unit. It may have been auto defrost but worrying in this heat.
I left Geo’ to it and headed down to Rona Lodge to prepare the pollock and crab we’d caught yesterday. 4 yachts had joined the American yacht in the bay but it looks like a wet night for them. Not such a busy day tomorrow as we have no guests going away but I’m sure something will turn up.
As for the cold it is still here but the shoulder is slightly better, roll on tomorrow
