UP early to get some egg bites on the go.
After breakfast I hit the studio and get some work done before a pre-podcast recording chat with the host of the future episode.
The post brings some new nuts for the collapsible guitar. I take the best fitting one and spend the next few hours sanding, filing and sawing to get it as close as possible to the one I broke…but making the string notches big enough for the heavier gauge strings.
It’s a beautiful day and the sun’s out so I mix up some UV resin and make some earrings for a West Highland Way Gifts’ order, go back to the studio and fit the nut onto the guitar then re-string. Seems to work OK….I mess about with some riffs then take a look past my accounts. Year end passed a week or two ago and I’ve a years’-worth of transactions to sort out for my tax return. Determined not to leave it ’til the last minute again!
It’s after 6pm when I go for an hour’s walk up the lochside. When I get home Margaret’s back with some shopping, I light some charcoal and grill the flank steak I marinaded earlier….
