Back home again...

Where did that go?

What big teeth you have...
Here we are back home again and the last couple of weeks seems to have flown by. We had a terrific time in Scotland (as always) but this time seemed to be more of a relaxing holiday than a jaunt around the countryside. We spent a good deal of the time just relaxing and reading. the weather was good most of the time and it was a real chance to unwind. My plans, for visiting interesting stuff, all came to nothing. We did take a trip over to Falkirk  to visit the boat lift. That was an good day out. Rather than bore you with a résumé of the Laughton's trip on the wheel, if you want to know more, go to the Falkirk Wheel's website.

I keep referring to "we" so I had better introduce you to Sue's Mother-in-law...

Look, There it is!
I am not sure what the pointing was all about but it makes a good picture. When we were not lounging around in the garden or walking in the grounds we did do the odd road trip, including a visit to Aberdeen. We were told by the locals the we would not understand a word anybody said up there, and it was true. I could not understand a single thing this character said.

Before we knew it, we were heading back south leaving Scotland behind for another year and heading back to The Smoke to resume the daily grind. I never did get to do half of the things I had intended to but it was still a good break and I can't wait to get back.

It's that time again...

Last year we decided to take a holiday in Scotland and managed to spend a few days in a fantastic place near Dundee. This year we are back and this time we are here for the full two weeks, and the place has a good broadband connection!

The preparation to this year's journey was much the same as last year and you can find that HERE. I will try and post some stuff of interest over the next couple of weeks. If you have any suggestions as to what is worth a visit  in the Dundee area please let me know.
