We had a lovely time near Loch Lomand sampling a few drams and having Haggis, neeps and tatties for Burns night! Unfotrunately there was no snow where we were apart from right on the mountain tops. The scenery was beautiful and the hospitaility brilliant. I have a few new photos to scrap.
Although I did realise why I had neve had one of these touring holidays before, I remembered I am still travel sick on a coach! At my age I had to sit there with accupunture travel bands on and a bag on my knee. It brought back all the memories of school bus trips!
Next week I am off to Scotland for a few days. I am hoping there will be a nice log fire and a few samples of Whiskey to try and keep out the cold and snow. While I am out of the house I have arranged for my friendly decorator to come and decorate my staircase and hallway. It is badly in need of a make-over as the same wallpapaer was on when we moved into the house in 1999. But as the hallway is a catherdral ceiling and an 18 foot drop for wallpaper, there is no way I was ever going to get up there and strip off the wallpaper.
Of course I never thought through the implications of booking the decorator, I soon realised that I would have to spend all my lunch times searching for new wallpaper! After several trips out to B&Q and Focus I brough smaples home for my husband Allan to look at – of course he hated them all. Then he got the task of looking for samples and I hated his choice. Well last night we called at a local independent decorators shop and found the perfect paper. Within 10 minutes of walking through the door I found the perfect paper and bought it! I will take a photo of the before this weekend and then show you the finished hallweay whehn we come back from Scotland.
