    ... hopefully close to the main street, I had an idea of a budget, next I just needed to find a place. I started looking online but didn't really see anything that I fancied. I then went to the leasing agent, and saw one that fit my criteria. I asked for a viewing and was told I could see it one night after work. I decided to take my aunt and Grandad with me, since my mum and dad, who I normally would have brought, weren't here. This flat was across from the ...

I will hopfully find out this week if I get and interview or not. It would be part time in the ...

    ... village on the sea that is 5000 years old, older than the pyramids and Stonehenge. Sea levels are rising in the area and may cover Skara Brae eventually – they’ve tried a seawall and a number of other things but none are working.

    ... few hours of walking available so was keen to start early. The previous evening when I was negotiating a breakfast time with Gordon, explaining that I was keen to catch a 7.30 am bus, he said "I'll drop you wherever you need to go." So just before 8am. he drove me the 4 miles back to Gills Bay.
    The map indicated that a minor road ran close to the coast for most of my intended walk. I was reluctant to try to get closer to the ...
