plans? what plans?!

Things are all going extremely well, as you will have been able to tell by reading the updates! I am giving up the luxury of the Celtic Goddess campervan on monday, but have decided to stay on for a bit longer. I am probably going to take part in a summer school organised by the University of the Highlands and Islands, which will be based around Lochmaddy in North Uist, from 10 – 14 August. So I have a week to play with, and at the moment am considering where to put my tent until I cross the sound of Harris again…

The worst  July weather in living memory… no summer so bad since 1926 etc, I am hoping that will change and give me a week of glorious camping conditions! Watch this space, as they say…

  1. You’ve washed up in the right place – North Uist is obviously where it’s at – Sol spent a week there in June and is writing an essay on community control and development there , Julia and another author will be joining you in August to recharge their creative batteries …What’s the summer school studying ?
    .It’s raining again here but the blue moon shone brightly last night …..
    Good to hear you sounding happy and inspired.
    I like this quote from Anthony Gormley
    ” I make things
    some small
    some bigger”. !

    1. I like that quote too!
      I love N Uist, and also Berneray. Summer school is about art and archeology and sounds good. Working out logistics is a bit tricky… when / where is Julia coming? Do give her my mobile number, would be lovely to meet! This is turning out to be much more sociable than I imagined. Hoping to meet up with some Northumberland friends this week, if I survive the gale force winds in a tent… x


  2. I’m impressed that you are so flippant about the weather, and camping, and all that might entail.
    Just in case you are stuck in a tent and cooking up more new recipes- let me know if you have any suggestions for a glut of the cucumber-marrow-courgette spectrum down here in the Dordogne, where there has been rain (not much) and a blue moon (very bright) and a rather dodgy ride-on lawn mower as old as your Goddess.
