An absence of twittering…

Uh? I don’t understand! This was supposed to be posted!

Hello all and Happy New Year!

While not the most auspicious start to this years blogging, I would like to apologise about my recent neglect of twitter. I am currently spending a lot of time down at our new shop in Old Aberdeen where we unfortunately have no internet so I’m unable to tweet when I like. Boo!

Hopefully we’ll sort this out soon and I’ll be back with #porridgeknowledge, #kilausoup and #kilaumeet updates soon!

Stay warm everyone!

An apology and an update

Oh dear.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!!!

Not just over a month since a Most Played Music list, but over a month since I’ve updated anything at all! I am sorry! The kicker is that there will be no Most Played list because of a Mac related meltdown before I’d saved the list, but after I’d reset the play count. Too cruel!

With regards to the kilau on campus, things have slowed down a little, but we are soldiering on! All the electrics are done, all the plumbing and all the equipment is in, and we’ve painted the shop front! Hopefully there will be more (exciting) news soon!

In the mean time here’s a wee photo of the shop front!

Painted Shop Front!

And a tasty treat!
