Typically I couldn’t sleep last night so was up before this morning.Dunno why but I never sleep well before returning to work, probably thinking of all the stuff I didn’t do this last fortnight. AM and all is well, OK it’s now the Dow Jones is down 12,000 points (whatever that means) and I’ve just made dinner.
In typical ‘Britpart https:// Shitpart ‘ style the turbo gasket was the wrong shape and I had to trim it with a sharp wood chisel.
And that really was about it on the work front, the late afternoon heralded a very pleasant surprise when my ex clam diving skipper and his partner turned up for a coffee.
Mind you, I’ll not be eating it for another 15 hours!!
It is of course Tuesday, my last Tuesday so, after a visit to me Mammies I’ll be relieving my trusty ‘back to back’ and commencing my ‘two weeks on’.
Willie does love his scallops We also had a visit from a local boat owner who had broken down in Loch Arnish, his propeller shat steadfastly refusing to turn his propeller He left the boat anchored in the loch and I lent him Phoebe to get home.
The SS Politician Steaming westwards with a general cargo of valuable revenue earning exports including 243,000 bottles of whisky.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.However my shed sees little sun at this time of year.It might be boodly cold in the shed but that doesn’t seem to bother the mice, I’ve been trapping two a day for weeks now and the wee beggars are still eating my quad, Land Rover and now the Subaru.They were at the neoprene insulation on the Honda again, one of them had had a go at cables inside the Land Rover’s battery box and yesterday I lifted the bonnet of the Subaru to find insulation eaten under there and mouse droppings on the battery!!! Once it had warmed up a little and I’d finished painting I did retire to the shed and start rebuilding the Landy.
