Tomorrow it is to Norn Ireland
across the Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, the Irish Sea via the High Speed Ferry to Belfast and on to Newcastle Co Down. Two cars necessary as the two grandchildren don't travel light. 25 days of sea air, turf fires, golf and hill walking-within reason as the 4 month baby is not a good walker. To rant will not be too easy as the phone connection is a trifle slow and there will be a lot of competition for the sole computer-two writers, an editor and a fan of Rainbow Fish. Huttonian's agents will keep him posted of Mersian developments-could be interesting as the draft local plan is meant to be finalised by the end of October so the question of affordable housing in Knowe's Close, or not, should be determined by then. And Norn Ireland is an interesting topic in its own right. And if you don't want to hear about golf turn off until 1 November.
