First Few Days

St Andrews, from St Rule’s Tower

And so I’ve now been back for a few days I hear you enquire ‘what have you been doing?’ Well… erm… mainly just eating and drinking, to be perfectly honest… Well and checking a few things off the bucket list.

Cous cous – so good they named it twice…
The Bell Tower

To quickly summarise Saturday: it was miserable weather and so instead of going out to do things we had a long lunch, went for coffee, then a quick jaunt to the pub (or two) and then back to make dinner. And I’m not even joking. Unsurprisingly this lead to us being a little too full and in need of a late evening digestive walk.

Luckily Sunday turned out to be a much better morning, meaning there was enough time for a quick trip to the cathedral. This, apart from the obvious enjoyable factor, served nicely as part of both the photo challenge and my bucket list – as I’d never climbed St Rule’s Tower before (despite having lived here for four years – that organised). As luck would have it this made us perfectly on time – OK, ten minutes late – for lunch with Kat at Mitchell’s, which was as gorgeous as expected.

And as if that wasn’t enough fun for one weekend, we’ve only reached Sunday evening. Scary a time as it may be, I’m now thoroughly looking forward to it!
