      ... position with a decent starting salary. It is a position that will allow me to get qualified as a Travel Agent and thus gain a skill which I can take anywhere, should I get itchy feet again. I will be working 5 days a week on a 6 day roster and it is usually an eight and a half hour day with a half hour lunch break. I get to sleep in a bit on Saturdays though!!! On Saturdays, we only open at 10:00 AM instead of 9:00 AM and then we close at 3:00 PM ...

      ... cool - Wyre and Rousay. It was really great too - I got to go and see the Buffalo farm they have on island! Buffalo are really nice animals - they don't spook as easily as cows, and the ones on this farm were incredibly friendly!
