UP at the crack of dawn – loads to get through today.
Once the bread’s out the oven and cooling on a rack I get egg bites in the Instant Pot and do some epoxy prep in the office…there’s a bunch of inlays to be done on chopping boards I engraved yesterday. There’s also some wood and epoxy earring orders needing made up.
I print postage and customs labels for all the overseas CD pre-orders. Keen everyone gets their CD by or before the release date of 18 November…and some of the orders contain other merch items too. Not so much pressure to get the UK orders out.
After my first Zoom guitar student of the day I get back onto the PR/media stuff for the album release tour then follow up on the invites to the private media/industry launch event on 16 November.
I also need to check the PA system and mixer. Something weird was going on with the rig at the garden concert and then again when I took it to Cashel for the Cashel Bash festival. We don’t use it often, but I need to get things straightened out before it goes away otherwise I;ll forget and be hit with problems next time it comes out.
Seems to be some kind of issue with the mixer. I can’t see nay weird settings or out/routing errors, so I reset the whole damn thing …and all works. Just means the whole mix will need to be set up form scratch next time we use it.
Suddenly the day’s gone and it’s time for another session with a Zoom guitar student. Then the WIldcats’ livestream.
After dinner I put together an eNewsletter for the local community trust and manage to get myself to bed by midnight.
