Wednesday 4 April 2012: Ladies who Lunch...
Great excitement today....I was meeting my lovely friend Eileen from Peebles for lunch in South Queensferry! Given the distance between our homes, busy working and home lives, we don't get the chance to meet up for lunch very often so today was a big deal! South Queensferry seemed like a good mid-way point.
Dropped Alan off at Marion's at 1pm (due to one thing and another, an hour later than planned! Damn!) and headed off to SQ. We agreed to meet at the Hawes Inn and as luck would have it, we arrived at exactly the same time.
Now my plan had been a bit of lunch, some chat then a chance to spend some time taking photographs of the stunning forth bridges before heading back to collect Alan at 6pm.
So we had lunch, some chat, a coffee, some more chat, another coffee, more chat and as we debated whether to have another coffee or not, we checked our watches and almost fainted when we saw the time....6.05pm!!!!!
A hug and hasty goodbye to Eileen, a quick call to Marion to apologise and tell her I was on my way, mad dash to the car stopping for less than a minute to hurredly snap the bridges then thrilling drive back!
A truly lovely afternoon even if time passes at double quick speed in SQ! Oh and no difficulty chosing which shot to blip....THIS is the only shot where the Forth doesn't look like it's running on a downward slope off the page!
Hahahaha.....and I have just seen that whilst there, I was being stalked by the lovely Appreciation! Such a shame we didn't bump into each other but if we had, I suspect Alan would still be languishing at Marion's just now!!!! :-))
But don't worry, we shall have our own meet soon A....that's a promise! :D xxx
Heard on the car radio that the snow has made its way down south. If it has landed with you, I hope you are safe and cosy. :-)) xx
