The journey back home…

20120411-071322.jpg

So last week I made the journey up to Scotland to take Dad back to his final resting place, not a bad spot is it? This is the river Clyde, opposite Dad’s childhood home and also where my Aunt Isla is scattered. Although it was a poignant trip I had plenty of laughs and fun with Lorna, Brian and Noah including meals out, a trip to Edinburgh and a particularly fruitful trip to Mandors

Here's a few photos of my trip....not many outfit shots but now Andy's sorted out my website there'll be plenty of those to come!!

This was taken at The Willow Tea Rooms, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh one of my favourite designers.

Here’s Lorna and I at Assams, a very nice curry house where the Nan breads are like blankets and we all left so full we were groaning with greed!

This is our walk by viewing of Edinburgh Castle as I would neither queue up nor pay over £30 to look round, what can I say? It’s the Scot in me ;-)
