We're on the road to somewhere...
I slept terribly last night. I was still wide awake at 3.30am. The result being when the alarm went off at 8.30am, I could barely get my eyes open. David got up but I decided to have an extra hour. It made all the difference.
After Lola had had her walk, we decided we both needed to get out of the house for a little while. A number of our usual eateries are closed at the beginning of January, so we decided to go a little further afield for lunch and ended up at Blair Drummond Smiddy Farm Shop.
We had a lovely lunch of sweet potato, chilli and coconut soup, sandwich with parma ham, smashed avocado and rocket followed by coffee and cake (a last hurrah - healthy eating starts Monday!) They had some bargains in the shop and I got a beautiful Christmas serving plate and some Christmas tea towels. I never buy Christmas items / decs full price. These will get packed away for Christmas 2019 :-)
We had planned to come home the longer route around Loch Earn and I had my camera with me, but of course by the time we left the place it was almost dark so we just headed home the fastest route.
After dinner I listen to another two of my Kate Bush re-mastered cds. This time Lionheart and Never For Ever. They have done a magnificent job remastering the albums. The sound quality is amazing and I am hearing instruments, harmonies and sounds I haven't heard before, despite listening to these albums countless times.
Laptop still not downloading my emails. Going to have to admit defeat and ask D for help!
Backblips start HERE :-))
