We have arrived. Tired from a long sea voyage, where I discovered sea sickness for the first time, and realised I had never had enough sympathy for sufferers before. But we were met off the ferry by the owner of our rented house, and he showed us the house and then stood us to coffee at the local shop while we signed papers. If we can get them, he is happy for us to run a few sheep, and if Dave can manage to buy the right sort of spade, he can restart the veggie garden.
The house is perfect for our needs, we just had to dash out and buy a kettle, which we forgot to get on the mainland, and we are now set for the next year. What a relief. All my nightmares of the house were totally unfounded, I just wasn't sure about a house we had never seen.
But it all looks really good, for a great 2010
