Radiocroft working again, but it doesn't matter because I'm in Aberdeen, bound for the New Deer Showground

Hell of a day yesterday, involving (due to the ISDN breakdown) a mad dash into Lerwick to do the programme, a mad dash back home (time to check the ISDN, which was working), a very ungainly trip into Lerwick with guitar, computer and all sorts of other gubbins on the bike, finally reaching the ferry at 6.00pm.

Many thanks to the local BT engineers who worked to get the Radiocroft back on line. Hopefully everything will still be working when I get back home in 10 days or so.

Meanwhile, it's a full-on weekend. Ebay duties mean I have to meet Michael from Orkney tomorrow morning to hand over Gloria the camper, and Stefan from Amsterdam on Sunday to give him the BMW . He's flying into Aberdeen and then riding to Newcastle to get the ferry home the same night. However, I'm also m/c-ing and playing at the Wizard Festival in New Deer, SO...

Got off the boat at 6.50am, dumped all my stuff at the BBC. Cleaned the camper, took bike to airport, had breakfast, picked up hire car, drove back to BBC, transferred gear to car, had another breakfast...but I'm getting ahead of myself...
