Things to do, places to be … yes even here in the Outer Hebrides, just as in Edinburgh, London or New York. Buidling maintenance and redecorating at Askernish; Final finishing works at Carrick (cladding at windows, replace temporary doors with those that were actually specified!), Install electricity in the sheds here and build a new shop here at home, Roundabouts to design in Essex …. Too much to do, too little time, not enough money for any of it. However, I shall do my best! Sometimes it really is better not to look at the bigger picture – you’d just want to give up! – better just get stuck in and on with the job. If the weather is good – outside; if not – indoors. That said, today has to be indoors whatever, that roundabout in Essex has become urgent again.
