Monday

Very nice and warm here in Stornoway, everybody is outside (except for me at the moment). Will make final preparations for tomorrow's journey later this evening. Plane is at 8.30 am, so will have to be at airport even earlier. Hope that formalities are sorted quickly, after which I can organise onward transport.

I hope to return to Stornoway at some point in the future - whether that be soon or late I cannot tell at this point. Neither can I tell whether I'll resume blogging on here or on the alternate journal (The Shell Gallery).

I wish all well, and special thoughts to those coping with a bereavement of their own.
I hope that those of you who are coping with ill health yourselves or in the family will soon find an improvement.

Bye for now,

    I've been thinking about you today, Guido.  I'm glad that final preparations are almost in place.  God be with you and your family at this time.

    Thanks for your update.  We you can tell from the outpouring, we do care:)  Whatever you decide to do in regards to blogging, please perhaps send another update to let us know.

    Peace.

    Goodbye for now Guido. Have a safe trip home. I think you know we're all going to miss you so much. I hope one day you'll be able to return here, you've done so much for this community. I hope this catches you before you go, I'm a bit late leaving a comment but Andy's in another sickle cell crisis and I've just got home from the hospital. Godspeed. Jeannette xx
