Friday 15th. August, 2014 – We did a lot and had a good night out 


I took this picture this evening when we went out with Mum to celebrate the total completion of the sale of her house – the money had arrived in her bank account and everything was sorted


Up, walked Mix and breakfasted in the farm house. Tom arrived and we set about completing the roofing felting of the Bothy. We worked at it all day, helped by Rachel and David and now have the second side completed. All that remains to be done is the ridge and we will get that completed soon.

While we were doing this, Olive and Digger took their friends off to Holy Island where they explored the castle and the island before returning via Berwick where they ate at Limoncello.

Rachel, Mum and I went out for a meal in the evening at the Black Bull. I hadn’t been there before but I would certainly recommend it. I started with a hot smoked salmon and prawn gateau, progressed to chicken stuffed with haggis in a peppercorn sauce and from there to a raspberry cranachan washed down first with Ginger Beer and then with coffee. It was a splendid evening.

Back home I joined everyone at the farmhouse for a ginger wine from Lindisfarne – it was excellent.

Retired to the Granary where I watched the news before walking Mix and retiring to bed. It has been a superb day.
