We take Sheena, Paul and girls for a walk up the lochside to Milarrochy bay…

WE’RE up at a reasonable time..the girls are already awake and watching a film. Poor Paul was up with them at 7.30am!

After breakfast I notice a Facebook message asking about the guitar amp I have for sale. I call the guy immediately and he arranges to pop up to try the amp late afternoon.

We take Sheena, Paul and the girls for a walk up the lochside to Milarrochy bay then have coffee when we get back home..then our pals head off home. It’s been great having them.

I collect the Mesa/Boogie amp from the studio and set it up in the house ready for the potential buyer. I have a wee play with it myself and, of course, enjoy myself. Can’t get cold feet now ‘cos I’ve spent  fortune ordering a Fractal AX8 and, if I decide I like it, will need the cash from the amp (and the other stuff I’ve sold over the last week or two – to pay for it!

The guy arrives with his guitar, tries out the amp and decides to buy. We have a good ol’ blether and turns out we have a few good friends in common. Glad the amp’s going to a good home. And happy to get the dosh….as well as reclaim a corner of the studio where it’s been sitting doing nothing.

I get some work done before dinner and try to plan out the week ahead,..

I SPEND most of the morning on some USA booking stuff then start getting the smoker ready for tonight’s bacon-wrapped pork loin.

While the smoker’s doing its thing I get some online promo done then go back to the house to make some prawn spring rolls for our starter. The pork seems to reach temperature a lot quicker than usual, so I keep it on the smoker for a little while longer…don’t want to risk making our guests ill with under-cooked food.

Sheena, Paul, Annie and Elsie rock up just after 7pm and we sit and chat over some bubbly and beers.Sheena fed the girls before they left home so I put a film on for them and we sit down to eat.

It’s one of those nights where it’s suddenly after 2am…but we haven;t seen these guys in ages, so there’s lots of catching up.
