UP early to get sourdough in the oven. it’s not windy, but it’s dark, cold and wet out there and I’m still feeling a. it under the weather so I give going for an early morning. paddle a miss this week.
Margaret’s off to meet some pals for lunch and I hit the studio for my first Zoom guitar student.
The ‘free plus postage’ badge offer has worked well and there’s a load of orders…most of which include other merch items. Interesting how this always seems to work. Much better than last week’s free CD with vinyl offer.
I have some other merch to make up in the office then start working out what materials I need to replace the roof on the smoker/pizza oven/bar shelter. This has become urgent.
It’s not gonna be cheap either, but I bite the bullet and order the stuff I need.
After lunch I work on the merch orders, do some work on a web plan for a musician pal then put the Christmas lights up along the front of the house. When I plug ’em in tho’….nada. The wires have come adrift from the wee USB plug. I put it aside in the hope that I can maybe solder it back together when I have time. Not today.
After. alit prep for tonight’s Wildcats’ livestream on Facebook I haver a good session with another Zoom student the go into the livestream which goes pretty smoothly.
After dinner I pack more merch orders and print postage labels so we can drop ’em at the post office in Glasgow tomorrow morning.
