A bright (at times...) breezy, rainy, unpredictable Scottish day to mark yet another end of week. End of term tests are dominating Toby's life and hence ours at the moment. We have also survived a Swine Flu crisis as Toby definitely had it yesterday morning but has proved a medical miracle by throwing it off by home time.I am in a state of the old usual boring pre race panic intensified by two runs in quick succession...the second arranged by us. I have exacerbated the nerves this morning by looking at the web site for the 1/2 marathon and discovering a count down clock...what sadist thought of that one?! (16 days 0 hours 14 minutes and 56 seconds..oops no, now 55, 54,53...well you get the idea of bubbling hysteria I am sure). The PB at the week end has now receded into a series of excuses:-
b) Familiar course
c) Glasgow guy pulled me along
d) Tail wind...actually that one is not true......

Friday May 8th
The superiority of the feu now belongs to us in return for £1,000 plus legal costs...except for the fishing rights. The Estate maintains the rights of Salmon fishing. Some burdens imposed by Eagle Star still exist but we have a waiver over caravans for 2 years. So, once more it is all on again. We are awaiting Mrs Martin’s return from 3 weeks holiday (What’s a holiday??) to give a preliminary report into planning permission.
