If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air

Mermaid's purse at Kilchattan Bay, BBC weather forecast: sunny spells

Then you can’t beat lying on a deserted beach in the Firth of Clyde, idly looking through half-shut eyes at an unexpectedly clear blue sky on a sneaky Thursday day off. The only sound is the plaintive peep-peep-peep of oystercatchers and the gentle lapping of waves. And then some bloody chainsaws start in a nearby wood. And then you realise with joy that you can turn the chainsaws off…

    Joy with a hearing aid. I like that. And I most definitely like the view!

      Bruv, VCR is functioning wonderfully, and is completely silent in its operation for both of us now. The VHS Gold selection of terrible figure skating trip-ups from the 90s is getting a new lease of life thanks to your timely intervention. Phoney thingy will be contacting you tomorrow…!
