Well, assuming that my poorly car actually escapes at some point today from the mechanics who are holding her captive, and nothing else decides to go wrong, screw up, fall sick or explode… including me… I’ll be heading north shortly for the Silent Eye’s autumn event.
It is always touch and go getting to Scotland. The first time we attempted the trip, we ended up in Dorset instead. The great coffee pot explosion had stopped us in our tracks and I couldn’t go anywhere till the bandages were off. The second time, we did actually manage it… though taking our ‘summer holiday’ in January pretty much guaranteed that we would be turned back by snow just short of our hoped-for destination…and that was without the warning lights taunting us from the dashboard of the car. I’m hoping it will be third time lucky!
There will be hills and ancient stone, there may be mountains and, if I’m very lucky, the heather may still be in bloom. There will be friends to hug and places to explore… and an awful lot of miles to drive. I will, therefore, inevitably be away from the computer for a while…not entirely out of touch but I may be a bit quiet. On the other hand, we will be exploring new places, visiting ancient sites and gathering lots of photos for when we return.
The Thursday photo prompt is all set up and ready to go and I’ve left a few posts just to keep the place warm…
Meanwhile, although it may not seem the obvious way to convalesce, I really can’t think of a better way at all 🙂
