We March on !!

A mixed week for news with the car still off the road with water entering the BSI unit and causing problems . The garage has ordered a part and it should finally be ready on Monday. This has meant that I have had to insure the loan car yet again.

The house is still on the move and we are just waiting for the results of the Searches which should be back next Friday. Then a date might be on the cards. We have just let the removal firm know so at least they will be on the ball. Also just phoned the people in Shetland that we are renting a bungalow from as originally we all thought we might be moving at the beginning of March. Good job we haven't as the ferry service from Aberdeen has again been affected by storms, and a couple of ferries setting off early at mid day rather than the normal evening time. Don't know what we would do if this happens as it would take us about 6 hours to get to Aberdeen from Sheffield.

Our cat is now practicing his meows (loud) for when we have to put him in the carrying basket to transport him up with us to the ferry. Previously every time he has been in the basket he has gone to the vets (so no happy memories)

Had sort of a leaving do at church today with Samantha bring two cakes to share. I went round taking a few photos and we said good bye to our vicar who wont be at church for the next three weeks. No doubt we will have another leaving do next week.

Later this week I will be giving three talks on Shetland, just to get us in the right mood. The first in Derby to a disabled Group then we move on the same day to give a talk to the Boston RSPB group, this is followed the next day with a talk in Nottingham, so a fair few miles.

Yesterday was a good day for Sheffield Wednesday with a superb 4-1 win over Birmingham City. Great atmosphere and a good display from all the players. As i have had a season ticket since 1967 it will hard not seeing them in action. May be just the QPR game on Tuesday before we move, so let hope they win.
