Summer's gone

Well, not quite on Canna. A couple of fine drying days at the weekend.

A whole month and no blog! Loads of visitors recently, and we've been all over the place seeing folks, so things have slipped. Busy once again, new term and all that...

Just back from work...Michaelangelo may well have got the Cistine (sp?) Chapel ceiling, but I got the contract for the Canna Pier toilet floor...hah! Pier opening officially on Wednesday. Must remember new loo roll.

Vegetable patch re-dug at last...found water pipe - works stopped pending further investigations.
Nice new swing frame installed at the school...more timber wrangling much to amusement of visitors.
Awaiting cladding for shed and Butinox No.2 for house. Garden path done. New oiltank installed after leakage...days after the guarantee runs out. Blinking flip.
Beasts showing much interest in 2 tons of coal in the garden. Messy business. What is it with these bags? Biodegradable nonsense! Old oiltank put to good use as coalbunker.
Recycling skips starting to arrive at the pier. Lighting and electrics underway.
Meeting to discuss possible renewable energy scheme postponed due to...too much wind(!). Again.
