The lack of WIFI at the caravan site continues and on Saturday night I was unable to bet against Christopher when it was obvious that he wasn’t going to win the X Factor – never mind, I said that I was going to let the bet ride and that’s what I had to do.
We had a treat yesterday when Rose joined us in the caravan for breakfast. She’s not the greatest sleeper and we said that we’d give her mum and dad a break and pick her up early on Sunday morning. I arrived at 7.30 a.m. only to find her still fast asleep. She then managed to stay asleep for another hour - so much for her normal 6.30 start.
It was another glorious St Andrews autumn day so we wrapped Rose up warm and took her down to the Old Course for a run across the famous fairways and a few minutes on one of the most photographed bridges in the world.
After that it was a drive down to the harbour and then to Sunday lunch at Sarah’s.
Marion has done a brilliant job with wrapping the Christmas presents and writing cards and our Christmas preparations are pretty near complete. We’ve just got a few odds and ends to sort out today and we have to prepare everything for our trip to England to make sure we can get it all in the car. This afternoon we’ve got a champagne afternoon tea at Rufflets Hotel to look forward to. Sarah and Duncan bought me this treat for my birthday and we’ve been waiting for wintry weather so that we can enjoy it by the fire in the comfortable lounge. It should be great.
