Closer.

Steam raised and ready to depart Carlisle!

You’ll recall in the last post that an offer had been made and accepted for the house. Things have indeed been progressing, slowly until a month ago but then accelerating rapidly to the point that I will be leaving Carlisle finally of the 30th of July.

As you’ll have observed, a process of packing and storage has been in place and this week the final acts in that process are taking place.

Meantime, following a trip up north in June, I found a suitable place in the coastal village of Inverbervie in Aberdeenshire, set in the Mearns country, celebrated by famous Scottish author, Lewis Grassic Gibbon. The place itself is absolutely perfect for my needs and set in such a nice place, about 5 mins walk from the sea, I can hardly believe my luck in finding it, no small help from a mate of mine – you know who you are and thanks again!

The third piece of the jigsaw is work and I have been lucky to get a transfer with work, to a small depot a few miles away. This saves me the anticipated search for some work again and couldn’t have worked out better.

This weekend, has been a mix of phone calls and on line chats to service providers as changeovers are set in place and visits to local friends. I also gave Scubaidh a trip out to Powfoot for one last attempt at the land speed record!

Next week, I’ll be writing this from a different place!
