Weekend off Yay! Friday Sam came back onto the island and sarah and Ross left with Matt! I planted lots in the greenhouse we'll see if it grows, I out the hurdle,s away from sheep day and painted the signs in the workshop, for food i made a cottage pie and lots of butterfly cakes...yum!
The weather picked up a bit on Saturday, I read my book in the morning.. The single girls to do list..and then I watched Sam make lots of yummy food! Onion soup, bread and Jamaican rice and peas. Not being able to eat spicy food I was proud that I demolished a whole bowl. We eat like kings here definitely. In the afternoon we went on a mini island walk and I started my life is good sign for the npt dofe office, it's taking it's time. Jamie made roast potatoes veggie sausages and beans for tea.. We need this shop done ASAP! He made me roast potatoes in star shapes! Yay! Simple things.
In the evening we could here the wind beginning to howl! We watched train spotting and drunk the wine Sam brought for me.. Thanks Sam! The wind was so crazy at 12 midnight me and Sam went to the jetty to make sure if it was still there.. Cue me and midnight flyin attempts! Bed time when we got back, I was glad of the lie in!
So the wind rattled thought he farmhouse all night and reached a top windspeed of 52 knots last night, and it's been sleeting here all day which is crazy considering it's the 29/4/2012. This morning I had another arts and craft session, think I need some glitter. Then we went on a wind hunting walk and being north easterlies we went to the jetty and johns plot and it was no exaggeration me saying I could not stand up at times!
For lunch Sam made onion soup with crusty bread and cheese yum and we had apple pie for dessert! This afternoon we watched rise of the planet of the apes with blankets to warm up after our windy walk!
Gemma I'm making Sam email/fb you as week speak to update you on his life, he is so easy distracted.
Tonight SAMs making mushroom goodness and I have no idea what ewe are doing. I am not looking forward to getting up and doing duty tomorrow! More wind and rain! Daily clean and monthly checks!
