... today I slept in late, did some cleaning and then I went on a 5.5km walk to Scapa Beach and back. Believe it or not I have been living no more than 5 miles from the sea for the last 8 months and I haven't been to the beach. Well I went today, in the thrashing wind and pouring rain. Typical Orkney weather, I left in the sunshine and not even 2 km in the wind picked up and the heavens opened. I was determined to make the walk so I continues but of course I was soaking ...

Shiny Silver Linings

... you to everyone who has supported me during all my ups and downs during my search for a new job and in realizing my dream. It's been hard and I know there are still struggles to come, but having you all behind me has been a big help. So thanks!

OK, so I may come back and add more or change around this post since I've been attempting to write it between Skype calls from my family, but its now 10pm and I'm getting too tired to write coherently.

... Maureen had to put her lovely but elderly Siamese cat down yesterday since she was suffering from kidney failure. She was a diva but gave some of the best cuddles, I guess Ill have to compensate but playing with the dog now.

... time feeling at home here, or atleast why it was so hard to make the decision to stay here so ***********t have all my stuff and as a result I dont feel like this is my home yet. Hopefully over the next few months I can make myself more at home, or maybe make enough money to move out on my own and make my new place my own. Anyways there isn't much else new at the moment. Once I go live on the internet on the 19th of Novemeber I will hopefully be able to update more frequently. Miss you all! ...

... ahold of that ball and get it to the waterfront and into the water with it. It can get quite physical. At one time there was a women's game but it got so dangerous and so many ended up in hospital that now only men can play.

It has been a lovely, sunny day with a cool breeze. Tomorrow will be another tour of incredible sites. ...
