As we slowly come down off the music high, weather and routine book work along with the Hydro next door helps with this. Blowing a strong North westerly today and the snow finally arrived this evening.
The VAT is now up to date and new filing slowly taking shape. Signing off accounts at the end of the week so going well, that is until you realise that there are three consultations to respond to involving land and sea. As I have already said can’t really complain if you do not put one’s views forward. If they are ignored well that is different. The paper work is made so much easier with Treacherous playing in the background. The new album Grind is shaping up to be the best album I have heard in a long time.A good sign is when the sounds get better each time you play it, so much to listen to. Little hiccup with the Filling Station which meant an extra trip north in the cold, but Dougal and Eilidh no complaints.
Did not get it up and running but Sean appeared and now know something else that I can do to get it going again. Still it is streets ahead of the last effort and slowly remote access and local cards are being sorted. Always feel a bit sorry for our neighbour at this time of year as they are knee-deep in glaur. Looks like she has had a haircut and looking okay in the sun.
Today another semi-relaxed one but productive as well, in that a couple of bills sent, CC emails off as well and a few fuel bills to go off before heading down the road. Bit of an early start as the SCFF AGM is on in Inverness at 9.30am. Most of the guys staying overnight so hence the morning start. Should be a good positive meeting, consultation has reported back suggesting that the reintroduction of the three-mile limit is a good idea. Not sure the Scottish govt seems to agree with this but we have to keep putting the case, if not for us, for the next generation. Another hiccup on the Filling Station meant another trip north with the dogs, but all was well as Zuzu sorted it out remotely from home, the technology caper is starting to work. Although slightly worrying it went down twice in a day good that trips up the road are now not needed. Paper run later but as A9 was slow did not get one but the view was not too bad.
The Inn was quiet the last couple of nights so have a loudish Treacherous on tonight, they are so good. MOD trial on just now so the kitchen has something to do. Wolf fish on the menu, Cat fish seems it is called on the east coast. What they call cat-fish I do not know. Had some tonight with a couple of scallops, fine food. A couple of games of scrabble to finish off the night.
