Non-stop fabulous weather since we've been on the Isle of Skye - hot, breezy and sunny all day today.

Now 600+ trees in the ground: alder, ash, aspen, birch, hawthorn, hazel, holly, larch, Norway spruce, Scots pine, sessile oak, wych elm and others.

Three more days here still to come ... W00t :-)

Lovely to see so many of you at Eastercon ... apologies for a number of snafus on my part, too ... hope good weekends have been had by all, in any case. Just getting ready to head over the London Euston and catch the sleeper train to Inverness ... and so, to Skye tomorrow afternoon ...

I met with Mater's rehab guy this morning, and his assessment was pretty upbeat. He reckons that Mater's existing carers are taking on board the training he's given them, so he won't need to send in his specialist staff for now, which saves us money. We're going to review again in two months, but we agreed there's definitely signs already that she's responding to the therapy.

A lot of it is very similar to things I've been trying to get her to take on board all along. But I can see that the relationship dynamic is both critical, and very different between rehab guy and Mater than it is between Mater and I!

So ... striking rail* workers willing ... I should be able to relax a little more on holiday on Skye next week ...


* Train is just about our only option: we don't drive, I don't fly, D barfs on coaches, that would be complex bit of hitching for novices ...

Just spent a fabulous 8 days offline hugging trees on Skye - also, visiting a wonderful woodland garden which was only started in 1993, and a walled garden which N has been asked to help renovate after a few decades of neglect.

Anything urgent, please assume I don't know yet!
