Sunday Morning thoughts

Time for the second episode of this blog. Thought I would take advantage of our Caithness summer. Sat outside, laptop on table looking out over the hill at the back of us (memo find out its name, after being here 18 mths I should really know it). It is not a summer’s day as you know it, the washing is horizontal on the line (a slight Caithness breeze) but the sun is out, so it must be summer. Also I can sit here in short sleeves, no shorts though, now that is one step too far.

The start of a glorious new season, yet again

Well folks this is it, isn't it. The start of a new season, all of our hopes, fears, excitement. How are we going to do this season? Stupid question isn't it, we are going to win the Premiership, FA Cup & Carling Cup !!! Of course we won't but if we can't dream at this time of the season when can we?

This is the second season when the excitement is a little less than it used to be. This is of my own making. 18 months ago I decided it would be a good idea to move as far north as you can on the UK mainland, Caithness. My directions usually are, head north to the A9 and just keep on going. Stop just before you end up in the sea, turn left and you have found me.
