Is this thing on?

So, two months just flew by. It's been fun establishing ourselves here at Gilston. The summer has been pretty good , at least by Fife standards, and we've got a lot done. The ME has been restrictive - I'm having to pace myself carefully, but I've got a lot done. I've worked on being able to graciously accept offers of help, even though internally I was snarling at the need and my injured pride. I've got rid of the inner snarl now, and life is easier all of a sudden.


  1. Welcome back.

    I had just found your blog when you disappeared in your move.

  2. Thanks, Calum. I'll try to be more attentive to the blog now that life has settled down a bit. I've been a bit like a juggler with one too many balls in the air lately.

  3. I'm loving your choices of music, Calum! Thea Gilmore, Kate Rusby, Percy Plant and Alison Krauss, k d lang. Wow

  4. Thanks so much, Richard. My musical boundaries are bursting every day: artists, music that I would never have listened to previously are found and loved.

    When I first came across your blog it was through music and ... then ... you disappeared ... but I know you are a music man.

    Speak soon.

  5. Good to hear from you, Richard. I've been wondering how you were doing. Glad to hear you're getting settled.

    I know just what you mean about accepting help. I've learned to accept it when it's offered, but I still have trouble asking for it when I need it!

    Take care of yourself -
