The urgency of a wartime message :-)

Six twenty AM and I’ll be off to work in ten minutes so this is going to be quick. A late night of shifting barrels of diesel and sorting out water for Lachie up at the shed site had me in bed before I had time for any plonking on here.

A bit late really but our village hall is need of a little weeding and tidying up so if you get chance pop round this afternoon for the ‘craic’ 🙂 Some work has already been done and what a difference it’s made.

and time for bed.

That was the story so far in pictures and now I’m off to work for the last time this week, a busy few days ahead with the hens arriving on Friday 🙂



  1. The shed is looking good you could put the caravan in there. Are you getting point of lay chucks or day old chicks

    • Morning Rob, darling wife doesn’t want to live in a shed 😦 wonder if she’ll feel the same in a December gale 🙂 They’ll be ISA brown ‘point of lay’ pullets that we’re getting on Friday 🙂

  3. Great set of photos! Springtime on Raasay really is special.
    Looking forward to the story of the hens’ arrival, particularly as my wife is threatening to do something similar with quails. Have a good ‘week off’.

    • Morning Steve,

      quails, hmmmm, best not let the wife see this, she’s already mumbled something about Guinea fowl and turkeys 😦
