By coincidence I had all his ‘Little red books’ and my diving logs on the table so we spent an interesting hour or two pouring over them.Again, by coincidence, I’d not cooked all the scallops that we had for lunch so Willie and Tekela departed with a couple of large clams, some home made chorizo and Stornoway black pudding.
The Land Rover is still in bits and with what looks like snow and ice on the forecast over the next week or so I’d better get it sorted.
To be honest I’d plenty of time yesterday to finish it but it was just waaay too nice to be stuck in the shed.
Far nicer creosoting the gates and fences than working in the cold shed, for it was indeed boodly freezing in there.
The sun may have been giving us plenty of hot water via the solar thermal tubes and the solar PV was filling up the batteries.
The last day It wasn’t the ‘pure peach’ that it was on Sunday right enough but apart from the cold southerly wind it was a fine enough day and it started off well enough with two dead mice.
Not only have the wee feckers been eating all our vehicles they’ve made a nest in the Land Rover’s battery compartment under the passenger seat!!!
Sure, I’ve not had any big projects on this last ‘rest period’ but I’m pleased with what I’ve achieved and at least I’ll be able to drive to work with a working heater now Not only that but I’ll be able to see where I’m going when reversing having also replaced the reversing light switch too.
Sadly the Eberspacher cab heater is still ‘work in progress’ I tested that yesterday and have a sneaky feeling that the ECU is dodgy https:// resource on that site but it’s a bit random and chaotic https://
Boat moored in Loch Arnish, a sure sign of good weather An old fish trap The old caridh (fish trap) at Port Arnish, it’s hard to believe these days but not that long ago these stone traps were a common sight and used to trap fish on a falling tide.
