Tuesday, not doing too much today as need to prepare for our Scotland journey tomorrow, cleaned the house top to bottom for dad, got all the washing and ironing up to date, went shopping to make sure dad has his supplies for the next week and visited my gran and granddads grave to lay flowers. Adrian contacted us to update, only half a kitchen now and one bathroom is being plastered and water proofed, also think we can have the 2nd bathroom as planned, he is still working on the pipe. Cases packed, here we go again.

Wednesday, well we have come to the end of our three weeks in Devon, we have had some fantastic weather and I think Dad has enjoyed the company, driving to Bristol and then we will arrive in Edinburgh at teatime. Richard picked us up at the airport, car a bit dodgy, we discovered it had no oil in it, first stop garage to top up the oil, good old car didn't let us down after all. Nice to be back and be behind the wheel of my car, just need to remember what side of the road I have to drive on, uuumh a couple of scary moments. We are staying at Sean's house for the week ( a good friend of Douglas's) such a nice welcome from Kath (Sean's Mum) with a spotless house, she would make a good House Rental Manager, would easily fit in over in Portugal LOL. Had to pop in and see Katie and Carly and Danielle and of course Douglas had to pop into the Gilvenbank. Yes we are in Fife.
Thursday, Update from Adrian, the pipe is going to go where we want it, finally, just need to dig it in. Meeting Anita, Trevor, John, Yvonne and Steve for Lunch today, had a great lunch with some good banter, nice to catch up with the team from my old work. Then off to Town centre with Katie and the kids while Douglas went to his old work for a catch up. Managed a couple of hours chilling out and watched a bit of TV, funny as have not had a TV for so long caught up with Emmerdale and the Hotel Inspector.
