So the windows fall out of the schools, the ferry suffers an engineroom explosion, and the papers come in after the shops close. Good week.
A year or so ago, half a dozen new school buildings were handed over to the education authority. This week, there was a safety scare, after skylights fell out of ceilings - fortunately it is half-term holiday, so nobody got hurt.
The newspapers now come on the ferry, meaning they don't hit the stands until 2pm. In the Uists, that's even later. Two of the ferries to the Western Isles that have been away for refit have suffered breakdowns, meaning that there were no papers.
