The fitters come to measure up for the new kitchen. They introduce themselves as 'Shuggie' and 'Wee Davie'. There is also a morose lad who is there for 'training'. The morose lad doesn't seem to have a name, or if he does we're not told what it is. Shuggie, Wee Davie and the lad spend an hour and a half measuring. Angus who has absolutely nothing useful to say about kitchen design or cooker hoods leaves them to talk to 'The Font'.
Out over the estuary a rainbow makes a brief but colourful appearance. We seem to get rainbows every other day here. There have been two small supply vessels moored mid-bay for the last three days. I'd assumed that the crew would come ashore to replenish their supplies or rediscover their land legs but there's been no sign of any tenders arriving or leaving. Perhaps they're sheltering from a force 10 gale between here and Jutland ?
Into town with Sophie. No bacon roll this morning but Sophie is well catered for. Her Jaffa Cake arrives on top of my Americano.
We walk through town on our way back to the car. A second municipal Christmas decoration has been put up. This one stretches from Greggs the bakers across the road to Starbucks. Will there be a ceremony to turn on the lights ? Will a third street spanning decoration make an appearance ? Perhaps people will come from outlying villages to marvel at the sight ?
