Well this is going to be extremely short, it’s almost 23:00 and I’ve not long finished me chores. A spell of concrete grinding until 21:00 then a shower and lots of messing about on the internet. I came in looking like the abominable snowman and wifey looked very fetching in her oversize Cal Mac overalls
This concrete polishing is turning into a bit of an epic, and whilst Lachie and I are heaving 40kg of polisher around for hours on end I’m sure we’re both regretting the decision to do it. However, I’m sure it will look just amazing when it’s finished, and even now with no heating on it’s almost 4 degrees warmer than the floor in the barn.
We’ve been taking it in turns to do a couple of hours each on the grinder then go and collect stones for Norman who is busy with the gable end.
I’ve been going up to North Arnish collecting corner stones from around the ruins there. I just can’t bear to remove any stones from the actual ruins but there are plenty lying on the ground, the only problem is lifting them onto the quad.
I just can’t help thinking how lucky I am to Skye’s best tradesmen working on my house, just look at that wall, awesome
As the mobile phone reception is pish in the caravan I moved the Land Rover to the top of a hill and now use it as my ‘office’. The phone works from there and I can use a pen and paper without getting soaked
It took me two hours to get two stones for Norman, it took Lachie about half an hour to get a pallet load and trim them to size
Anyway, that’s it ‘I’m off’, I’ve got a plane to catch tomorrow
