Today started with high finance, shuffling money around in order to pay for things and get the Etsy shop up and running again. Now I need a decent camera to photograph pots as the one I was borrowing is back in Wales....!!
If you use a basic digital camera, you get basic images.......and it looks cheap and unprofessional.
Then a fitting at the dentist. I lost a lot of front teeth in a crash in the 1970s and the previous dentist hadn't renewed the plastic ones for many years. Your teeth move, your jaw changes and plastic wears so they shouldn't be left unchanged for more than five years. I've found dental care here in Scotland fantastic. Perhaps I've just been lucky to find this one, thanks to The Pirate.
Onwards to collect firewood from a friend. We'd felled a dead tree and our payment is the wood. Rowan burns well!
Time was tight, so lunch was "bun on the run" as we took turns driving to Dumfries for The Pirate's physio treatment on his shoulder. ( absolutely bamjaxed in a crash on the track in Sydney in 2009, when an ex-pro rider in front of him had a tyre roll off. Result, collar bone through shoulder blade.....)
Then back again to get home (almost) in daylight. It is getting dark so soon, it seems.
Whilst heating up supper, we made Carrot Cake...I mixed, he grated, we baked!!
Now we're ready for a visitation from cycling friends tomorrow.
If no-one comes I'm sure we'll have earned ourselves a goodly portion after chainsawing and splitting and stacking firewood!
