There can’t be many folk that take heart from moving from this,
to a 30’ caravan, but we have, indeed, for now at least it seems like a bit of a holiday. For one thing I can go and feed the hens in my pyjamas and don’t have to walk for 15 minutes to get there. The other thing being it feels like the house is a step closer as we can see it growing before our eyes.
As MiL says, all the best holidays have a view of a building site from the hotel window
My builder may be in Honolulu having a great time and wearing mad shirts
but his brother Donald is making a fine job of the ‘plant shed’. This will be the ‘lean too’ where the thermal store is going, finished in larch cladding with a slate roof it’s going to be a great place for drying clothes during inclement weather.
The move out of the ‘Old Schoolhouse’ at Torran was certainly easier than moving in there in January, this time I had a great helper and fantastic weather, even so it took the best part of two days.
I can’t thank my friends enough for letting us stay in their beautiful house, it certainly provides some of the finest views on Raasay.
It is like most of the houses here at Arnish and Torran in that you cannot a single speck of man made light at night, unless there is a fishing boat at sea or a car on the road from Staffin to Portree.
Can’t wait to watch the sunset from the caravan, or better still from Sonas, which is now officially on the Royal Mail website as an address Cost me £90 friggin quid right enough and I was severely dischuffed at having to fork it out to Highland Council but in the end I’d no choice. So, let me get this right, I have to pay you £90 so you can send me Council Tax bills to the right address!!! Yup, that’s about it says the operator in Inverness
Anyway, it’s after 6:00am now and I’ve stuff to do,
as you can see, I had a hard week at work
