Wednesday 27 June 2012: Bad me
Had to go to town for a meeting today. Cycled down to the village and then jumped on the bus. I was running late so grabbed a sandwich and had a picnic lunch happily at the back of the bus. Only once I'd scoffed my sandwich and was opening my kitkat did I notice the big red sign No Alcohol, No Food. Ooops. No one seemed to worry. I guess it would have been different if I'd been working my way through a kebab and a bottle of cider.
Once we got to the outskirts of Kirkwall I asked the bus driver to let me off. His reponse "Naw hen you don't want off here, the distillery is doon the road a bit.' He was just trying to be helpful, a tour round Highland Park would have been a nice way to spend the afternoon but I had other things to do. Wonder if he thought I could have done with a dram to wash down my piece?
