Where does the time go ?
I'll not go in to all the rubbish that's been happening so here's a run down of the good stuff.
I spotted this wee chap in the tree outside my bedroom window. I think it's a blackcap, but I'm not 100% sure. I'm sure some of my birdy pals would know.

The Voar Redd Up.
Last week we all headed down to the beach for the Redd Up. This is when folk all over Shetland head out armed with green bags and pick up the bruck that has been blown on to the beaches in the winter storms. There is a fairly small window of time when this can be done. It has to fit in between the last of the storms and the birds building there nests. We gathered a huge pile of rope, bags full of bottles, fishing floats, 3 left shoes and other bits and bobs. Coffee and biscuits were brought to us and the bairns enjoyed some fun and games in the back of a trailer.

I had an amazing Friday-Night-Lock-In which should have been at the shop but was re-located to a friends house. What a giggle. I laughed til I cried. This was one good night. We had a pizza delivered and the most delicious -flaccid- garlic bread with mushrooms . Followed by lots of chocolate and tea.
I even managed to get a bit of sewing done. I had forgotten/lost my silver thimble, so Sarah lent me her leather one. Oh my goodness, it is amazing. I have ordered some more for the shop.
So that's about it. I have another appointment tomorrow in Aberdeen. I am under strict instructions to have plenty of me and my time and come off committees and rotas. I guess I just have to learn to say No.
I hope you all have a fabby week doing the thinks you love with the folk you love best. Do let me know what you're up to and thanks for taking the time to pop by.
