Events almost unnoticed

Niels had a birthday at the weekend! We went and had a delicious meal at the Ceilidh Place in Ullapool together with our little family of builders. We all managed to stay awake to the end. It must be the fresh air! Yesterday the electricity board showed up on time and on the day they said they would!

And broke through from our garden to Annie's! Such excitement - it must have felt similar when the drill bored through the remaining rock under the Channel joining the English and French sides of the tunnel in the middle!
Now we can look forward to electricity bills again!
And last but not at all least, we have bought a tiny second hand caravan. It can best be described as 'cosy.' It has tiny real life things inside like a toilet, sink and table - from the out side it is perfect life in miniature! But it will be better than camping on dusty concrete floors, and will do until the house is ready for campers!

Belated birthday wishes, Niels.

Hopefully this time next year you will be able to sit back in your new house and enjoy it!!

It is really coming on well. Keep up the good work and the photographs.

Jackie.

I am absolutely loving the on-going "saga" - in the Norse sense - of your great adventure. I'm going to get withdrawal symptoms when it is all done and dusted.
Love Bee Thain
