Day 15 out of 14 in the off-shore household...
The sound of a helicopter and the smell of kerosine yesterday, but that was a catch-up flight after nothing for 6 days.
Today would have been crew-change back to Aberdeen, but at least an extra night on a remote island tonight due to snow and freezing temperatures and backlogs (-9 deg.C wind chill last night outside).

With National Tree Week just gone, I'm guessing back home and at the meadow the ground will be as hard as iron and no good for planting until things have thawed (and of course the logistics of getting 400 miles south have been resolved).

Hopefully home in time for The Mediaeval Baebes at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral on Saturday night and then Bristol and the South West next week - maybe grey-squirrel on the menu too this time.
Also Xmas stuff to sort, as I'll be working over the Festive period and hopefully home without delays in time for New Year and an overnight stopover with Gothic overtones to see in the New year.
I've thought a few times that 2010 was one of those 'fast years' where time and events just fly by and a few others have commented likewise.

Yes, couldn't agree more!

Hope you don't get stuck too long.
