Every evening lately when I sit down to write the blog other forces conspire to stop me. Last night was no exception but it was not hard to abandon the blog in favour of dinner on Yacht Etoile, more of that later.
We had an absolutely fabulous day yesterday and after the dinner on Wednesday it was a clean up and finish the stage of the garden shed/summer house/studio up top. Jeremy (yacht Etoile) helped me in the morning finishing the sheeting then I went back later to square up a few things and tidy up. The heat was fantastic with no midges.
During the day I took a look at the larder to see how the deer carcase was shaping up. The fridge seems to be behaving after problems earlier on this year. I guess I’ll have to get it serviced soon. On the way back down from the larder the sparkling seas really took my eye, we’ve been very lucky with the summer this year after 6 months of winter rain but I hear that is about to change as the jet stream is shifting!!
A steady stream of yachts kept us on our toes then Jeremy, Kath and spaniel Meg invited us to tea, no contest, we were happy to accept and headed out at 6ish for a lovely meal and craig on their new yacht. We return latish and I was too tired to face the laptop.
Meg, their spaniel used to live on Rona, sadly it had been badly treated before we got her and she was very timid, gun shy and hyper. Kath took a real shine to Meg and took her away to the South and has since made a fantastic job of bringing her on, she is a real character and companion for them. It was great to see her back and looking very well.
Time to go now, we are off fishing. The visitors from the cottages are looking for a boat trip and some fish, the weather is shaping up to be a good day so we’ll get a cast I’m sure, yesterday became very windy with 3 to 4 forecast but a good 5 was blowing most of the day. Here’s hoping it won’t blow up to-day.
