Folk get away from it all, don't they for holidays. Us, um, we do the opposite- we've got into it all. We are off on our holidays(I'm currently ensconced in an English pub) catching up on life. Free wifi, blow me down, in a pub?! We don't get on to the mainland of the UK or into civilisation much, clearly! I'm parked here on my own to let my son and his friend who's with us visit warhammar world (fantasy gaming type strategy place)which they both wanted to come to, the cellist declined, can't imagine why.....! Great for the boys though :) the cellist has her own friend and a couple of dogs to keep her happy!
Excuse the lack of photos (still not mastered the iPad!)I'm enjoying visiting family and catching up with friends, but, relaxing this ain't! I can quite happily say I don't miss shops, motorways, 24/7 convenience, its darn expensive this 24/7 mainland life. To be honest I like that our shops at home shut some of the day, I like the lack of choice at home, supermarkets here are bamboozling with their choice and array of goods. Mind you, petrol here is 23p/litre, no typo there twenty three pence CHEAPER here.
But, blimey aside the overwhelming everything, we are having a blast! Family visits, friends, eating the best ice cream in the world in St Andrews (it really is!!) the cinema in 3d, lunches out, drooling at garden centres, lovely family roast dinners, lolling in the garden, cliff chain walking (will post that up soon, that was awesome!), takeaway pizza, too much food, too much talking and laughing (can you have too much?)and far too much fun! :) terrible isn't it, having too much fun! :)
Despite all the fun and catch ups, I'll be glad to be home into the peace and quiet and lack of choice, even if that means dearer petrol! At least I won't have to overtake lorries on the motorway chanting "there's no place like home". Haven't even managed to see a chicken whilst I've been galavanting - that's a bit sad!
