Away to the Borders for the weekend

Finally get to use my free weekend in the apartment I shot the pictures for. My husband is already fretting that our son won't switch the iron off. He's already reminding me of the OCD sketch in the Catherine Tate show the other night.

Dog is going to N's for the weekend, which he'll love as he'll be able to snuggle up to his squeeze Basha.

My friend Meg in PA is hosting an 80th birthday for her Mom. She's bought a pinata, a Mexican puppet thing that when bashed dispenses gifts, anyway she's filled it with rain-mates (bonnets), a magnifying glass and a dollar store pistol, plus soft candy.
They are a great family I'm sure it will be a good party.

Borders should be good as there's a French market in the town square on Saturday, you can buy great food, including lovely gratin dauphinoise potatoes and cooked meats etc. So we may just have a picnic type dinner in the flat on Saturday night.

Looking forward to a change of kitchen sink :)

Those wee black-faced lambs just break your heart...we went to Melrose on our primary seven trip in 1975, it seemed like the other side of the earth!

That picnic will do me very nicely. About a year ago I was horrified to find I had left the iron on for a week whilst away. No fire, but soon after the iron gave up the ghost!
Have a great week-end!

Yes the appreciation of distance has certainly changed in the last 25 years or so nmj.

Thanks for the reasurance on the iron Pat! He had a "few friends" round too, but the house still seems to be intact and he seems very pleased with himse;f for pulling it off.
