It was nice to be amongst friendly faces in Scotland and all the rhetoric of the past year was nearly behind us and the bad events of the nasty policing during the commonwealth games was already passing from memory. The museum seems to go from strength to strength each year and I hear that there are many more projects associated with the museum being renovated outside and that future events will see several vehicles launched on to the rally circuit, we look forward to this very much. When the fun of the day was over the movements around the museum seemed easier than usual and we were ready to load up and make our way south, we had a good clear run but decided to stop at Tebay services with the great home cooking and have dinner so we wouldn't be eating too late in the evening. The road south from the lakes continued to be clear and for a Sunday night it must have been the quietest traffic this year.
There was a pile of post waiting for us at home amongst which was a solicitors letter reference out house in Ireland , the house next door is being sold and there was a query over the bounderies of the property against the actual fences erected by the builder, a typically Irish mess which has no obvious or easy resolution as the original surveyors and solicitors are no more. I've downloaded all the internet orders and opened up the post, there looks to be a parcel of models come through but I've not had the time to open the last lot. I've ordered up and bid etc on a few more of the Atlas models, there is a chap in Italy who has a lot I'd like but its impossible to purchase and he doesn't seem to care, all tied up with not stating postage plus EBay being it usual rubbish self. The order pile is high and Mandy will be busy, anyway some shots from a super running day at Glasgow.
