    Hi!Sounds like the course is going to keep you very busy! Glad the two of you are all moved to the cottage – time to stay put for a while I reckon – eight moves in 3yrs!Will be in touch properly soon, good luck with the course.Tor

  2. Thanks Tor – even busier on our second day today! Hope your convertable is going well for you. It’s getting way past convertable weather here – lots of ice on my windscreen this morning at 6.50am.

    Wow. Sounds like an amazing course. I know you guys don’t have dairy cows at the folks or the cottage, but with your background, you can probably skip that option! Please rest on the weekends!

    I did milk the cows at my Grandad’s place in Oldcastletown so you’re right – I can probably miss that out. Tomorrow morning I’m on garden duty, though, collecting the produce that we will be using in the day’s cooking so that necessitates being at the school at about 7.50am. The Husband is not going to enjoy being dragged out of bed so early!
