FIRST job of the day is making up a meal plan and shopping list for the coming week..Margaret’ll get the shopping later in Glasgow
There’s a bunch of flasks to be engraved for in3thewild so I get them on the go and assemble some of my new Loch Lomond keyrings to have on sale on Sunday when we have a table at Kilmarnock (near Gartocharn) plant sale. I also make backing cards for earrings and other small items and start getting them packed up.
Next I do a bit of online research to see if I can get a broken power plug out the socket on one of my video lights. It’s my go-to lamp and really don’t wanna have to ditch it. Emails and calls to various authorised service centres haven’t even attracted a reply, so it’s time to tackle it myself.
A YouTube video on removing mini 4-pin plugs helps me get the problem plug removed and I order a replacement online.
After lunch I hit the studio, make up a set list for the Berlin show a week on Saturday and rehearse some of the songs I plan too play.
Margaret come back with the shopping which we quickly put a way before she heads to he village hall for a local community trust meeting. While I ‘assist’ with communications, I’m not a trustee so don’t need to be there for the whole meeting…I finish off a few things in the studio then take a walk along to join them.
After the meeting Sandy pops up to the house to sort one of bathroom lights – for some reason when any of our flights fail it’s not the LED bulb but the transformer that needs replaced. He stays on. for a glass of wine, some dinner and a good ol’ blether…
