Calm returns

Well it's been quite a calm week. The pier lights are fixed now so the ferry has resumed normal service. We've had over a week with no power cuts.
Quite a few islanders still have no phone line though which is frustrating especially for those addicted to email and the internet!
Although it's been calm the island still looks a mess, no sign of A&B council over to fix the roads but I suppose there is a long list of repair work to do.
Social highlight of the week was a Burns Supper hosted by the Iona Community, for £3 each it was great value and it's good when the Iona Community invite the island Community to come together.
Next weeks social highlight, for the ladies anyway, is a Hen Night!
The Pub might be reopening as well - the sign at the moment just reads 'closed January' which is a bit ambiguous but here's hoping.

Having never read any BLOGGS before this is new to me - but found it very interesting to read about life on the island petefromperth
