I have just returned from a marvelous 5 days down at Linda’s … we had the most wonderful weather and spent as much time as we could swimming in her pool … I managed to get my revenge for her naked hot tub dip at Loch Goil by jumping topless into her pool … that was caught on camera … whoops!

We fitted in a lot in my 5 days … visited Chartwell, the home of Winston Churchill, went out to dinner with some of her friends to a wonderful italian in Eastbourne, went to London to see “Motown”, which was superb and Linda treated me to dinner at Veerashamy’s, the UK’s oldest indian restaurant.   Although the journey home was a nightmare as we were turfed off the train at Tunbridge Wells due to fatality on the line and had to get a taxi all the way back to Linda’s!

Sunday, we had a quiet day, because the cold that had been lurking in me came out in full force but we enjoyed Sunday dinner with Linda’s daughter and grandchildren.

Monday, I was still sniffy so we had a drive around the local area, lunch at a seaside restaurant in Eastbourne in the most beautiful weather, followed by a drive to Beachy Head and the surrounding area.   It really is a beautiful part of the country.

I flew home on Tuesday, still stuffed with the cold and Barry met me at the airport with Sprout, who has been spoiled rotten during my time away …. but she was the most cuddle wee thing last night.

Im looking forward to Linda coming up in just over a weeks time, this time we are off to Pitlochry for one night and then two nights in Glencoe… with another hot tub … can’t wait!
