THERE’S a bunch of stuff to get done before my first session with a Zoom guitar student.
First, there’s some merch orders to be packed up, postage printed and stuck in the postbox.
It’s a lovely morning out there and the loch’s unexpectedly calm. There’s a few paddle boarders going out in the bay a I wish I could join them.
After the Zoom session I dye a leather hat patch for my new ‘Dave Arcari’ beanies and finish off the merch for Drymen village shop in time for the Christmas shopping evening on Friday. I’ll hopefully have time to drop it all off tomorrow (Tuesday).
After lunch I put the new gazebo roof on the bare frame in the garden. The frame needs dried off then the fun and games begin…the frame is kinda goosed so is permanently ‘up’ which is gonna make getting the roof on a bit more of a challenge than it would be ordinarily. A couple of sets of ladders, some stretching, pushing and pulling and I get it on before attaching new guy ropes.
It seems to be getting dark awful early and I go a quick walk up Craigie Fort and do a couple of livestreams trailing this evening’s Wildcats’ livestream and promoting the upcoming Glasgow show.
Margaret’s been in Glasgow and picked up the new Dave Arcari hoodies from our pal Kenny…and also a box of shirts for Base Pizza that we’re getting for Robert. The new hoodies are ace! Will be on sale in the shop soon.
Back to the house for dinner then I return to the studio to create a landing page for the website and a Facebook ad for the Glasgow show on 21 November.
