A turbulent week with two hours of music at the end to look forward to...

Well, it's been a bit of a week. All the fuss about the health board exploded all over the local media, mainly because I was determined to have my say, and not go quietly. I'll publish my full, 1000-word article about why I resigned as a non-executive board member next week, as it's only fair that The Shetland Times has it exclusively first. Look there and on the Shetland News site for news of how Shetland Wool Week has been saved by Loganair sponsorship, and other island matters.

Apart from that, my book In Shetland: Tales from the Last Bookshop has kept selling. Still five stars on Amazon, though could do with some more reviews if you fancy having a go. Kindle edition still only £2.30.  Signed copies and some second hand books, not to mention coastal art and sculpture, on sale at The Beatcroft Shop on Etsy. Thanks to everyone who's bought stuff. Your support is really appreciated.
