There is still this little black cat, quite friendly, hovering outside the house. Not mine - keep seeing it up and down the street. Although today was quite bright, it was also feeling quite cold (for early May). Only 10C / 50F. The mainland could see -4C / 25F overnight, but we are not likely to get a frost. The weather should warm up again over the next few days.
The community in Pairc have voted to accept the buy-out deal with laird Barry Lomas. This brings to a close an eleven-year saga, punctuated by much acrimony in courts and what not - mainly caused by said laird.
