I’M KEEN to make my West Highland Way Gifts products available in one or other of the shops in nearby village, Drymen.
While they might be interested in some of the general West Highland Way stuff, I reckon they’d want to see some more locally ‘named’ items so I design and make some prototype fridge magnets and slate hearts. Hopefully these will make them more likely to take an interest in stocking some of my gifts and souvenirs.
They’re not finished by the time I have my Musicians’ Union Live Performance section committee meeting at 11am. Normally held in London, these meetings have been on Zoom since lockdown and I think it’s a much more cost – and time – saving of working.
The meeting finishes soon after 1pm then I make some lunch before finishing off the ‘Drymen’ souvenirs.
I take a break to make up a meal plan and shipping list for the next week and send it to Margaret then go for a walk up the lochside. It’s a bit grey and damp when I leave…then the rain starts. Ach well, I’m waterproof and it’s nice to get some fresh air.
I’d planned on starting work on the mix of Loch Lomond (Home) but want to get one more voice on the chorus – Margaret. Once we’ve put the shopping away I coax her into the studio and we get the recording done .
Back in the house I make some mushroom risotto and we watch the Apple event. I’m a little underwhelmed as I’d hoped a new Mac mini would be announced…but overall the company is still pushing the boundaries 🙂
