22:30 now and I’m ready for my bed but Donald Angus is still working in our house so I’m feeling guilty. Sure I’ve had a long day on the ferry but Donald was up and making his breakfast before 6:30 when I headed down the road for work.
Pretty much all of the solid oak doors are now hung and most of the skirting board fitted. More arrived today so wifey, son and myself painted them prior to coming in at 21:40.
I’ve had a shower and a bite to eat, but like I said, Donald is still out there.
Back to work
Well, the first full day on Hallaig had us making a start on some painting at last. The last shift got plenty done but judging by the forecast we’ll be struggling to compete. Even today, the ‘wall to wall’ sunshine we were promised never materialized.
Sure, it was nice enough at 6:30 but by 8:30 it was raining!!!!!!!! Brightened up by the afternoon and even reached 15 degrees, but hardly July weather.
Whilst we got on with the day to day stuff of operating the ferry we had contractors aboard installing an ‘all singing, all dancing’ WiFi system that should keep the Hallaig connected to the ‘world wide web’ 24/7 and all the way to Sconser and back. It’s unlikely to be as reliable and fast as my system at Sonas though
Before all that
Prior to returning to work of course I went to visit my parents
and took the dogs for a walk with the Dude. Molly just hasn’t got the hang of this stick chasing lark and prefers to chase the dug with the stick
As you can see, we still have MV Loch Bhrusda tied up alongside and Oigh Niesach was heading for her moorings ‘under power’
