Bonnie Scotland

Hello all.... we are here in Scotland, after crawling north through the abominable fog that disrupted the nation's travel plans. Complete with all the vital essentials, except for every one of David's presents. I forgot them at home. How bad a mother is that. The worst thing is that he thinks it is funny. I do not. I am appalled at myself. Oh well. He will have 2 Christmas present opening thingys.

We spent 2 nights with Ros and family outside Glasgow, and that included a dash into the city to get a couple of presents, and then headed east to Cheryl and Robin. These are views taken from their home. Absolutely stunning. Today the fog has caught up with us, and you can't see a thing, so I am glad I ventured out yesterday. That is Loch Leven, by the way.

I appear to have trapped a nerve in my back, which is not convenient at all. I do not recommend sneezing either. Not good at all. But the turkey is being brined, the damson gin is wonderful. The brussels are peeled, and the ham is being glazed. Now if I could just cease resembling a 170 year old crone, life would be just peachy.

Merry Christmas to you all!
