|actually it's the bigger brother of this one but you get the idea!|
We've also sent off the balance cheque for our static, had confirmation that the prospective tenants have paid the holding deposit and want to move in by the end of the month.
We realised that the four hour window between ferries probably won't be sufficient for the static delivery man to do much in the way of helping us site the static. So Ady's been watching lots of youtube videos on siting statics.
I meanwhile have been learning about training puppies, specifically border collies.
Dragon and Star have mostly been finishing off Easter eggs and playing. Star told me today 'I am quite rowdy'. She is you know :)
It's been a much more positive day today, we got an email with the Isle of Rum Community Trust newsletters and are most excited at the prospect of joining in with the beach clean the day after we arrive. We've done a few beach cleans over the years and the kids and I did a litter picking walk in our town, collecting three sacks of rubbish on a one mile walk and getting their pictures in the local paper and a display at the local library. An excellent opportunity to do something worthwhile and rewarding while getting to know our new neighbours.
Over at my parents this afternoon Ady and I both caught sight of a TV advert for Scotland and gazed at all the wonderful images of the place we'll soon be calling home. I had goosebumps on my arms and a huge lump in my throat. I can't wait.
