Weak

Somewhat predictably, my resolve not to go to Shetland this year lasted about as long as one of the Drunkbirder's resolutions to give up twitching. A combination of Sophie getting fed up with me being 'a bit grumpy' and the very kind offer of a lift to and from the airport from Mark and Jo was enough for me to crack and book flights last night.

So readers of this blog can look forward after all to another instalment of 'the Shetland Llama' from 3rd - 14th October. And even if it's a crap autumn that's got to be better for everyone than me getting cross about what I'm missing!

I shall have to live on bread and cheese for the rest of the year though, so it had better be good...

Pot of gold or crock of shite? Only time will tell...

Andy...could you define 'a bit grumpy'?! Did your grumpish 'technique' to get yourself to Shets involve acting like a sulky teenager? Or were the symptoms a bit more severe?...like it's 'the time of the year'...[October]...as oppose to the time of the month...?!

ps...hope it's a good Shets 'session' for you....

It certainly wasn't a deliberate 'technique', and it was nowhere near 'sulky teenager' level. But I think it might have approached that by October had I not gone.

Bloody hell... at least Mr Reeder will have a bit of company. How much have you had to shell out?

Too much. I'll book earlier next year!
