Are you losing musical associations with this move? Will you be looking to make new ones?

Good question. One long-standing musical association for Mr Limey and I had run its course by the end of the summer this year.
Door-to-door it will not take longer to get to our summer music camp and associated weekends.
From Easter or thereabouts we hope to join a weekly windband. This will mean an overnight away from home each week but this will be less expensive and less intrusive on our routine, we reckon, than a similar commitment from our current location.
There are also as yet unclear occasional opportunities with some of the occasional residents at new location.
So on balance although it looks more remote there seem to be more opportunities....

Well, that's 16 instruments delivered to their new home. (To be fair, they are the spares for the local brass band). Instrument No. 17 (an American Organ (suction bellows reed organ)) is off to its new home between Chrimble and New Year (a gift to the brother of a friend locally). No. 18 (an antique serpent) is off to a collection in the States in January. I'll let you know when you can go and visit on my behalf.
Later, I'll tell you roughly how many instruments will be coming with us to our new, smaller home ....

The 16 brass instruments belong (have always belonged) to the brass band. We were just temporarily housing them for the band. The reed organ is a gift I'm happy to give away, the serpent is being sold for what I paid for it.

That leaves just +/- 16 instruments coming with us.

But they're mostly just little brass things of the Tuba, French Horn, Euphonium, Sousaphone variety.
Oh, stuff like Limey's squeeze box that must stay dry.

No cheese. Things we will have to import from Arran on a regular basis: cheese, whisky, chocolate, gin.
